    Hi, I just signed up here and on Hulu.jp to get Giants’ games but they are playing two games this weekend and Hulu has nothing on it’s sports schedule and as far as I can see no confirmation they will be streaming them at all. Does anyone know if they will be? Hope it’s okay that I’ve posted this here.

      Hello Tetsu-Jack,
      Very sorry for the late reply. Your post slipped past me and I just noticed it now.

      Exhibition games weren’t covered by Hulu. However, they will be carrying regular season home games at Tokyo Dome again this year.
