AKB48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo To Be Broadcast Live On Google+

04 June, 2012 by

In addition to being broadcast on Japanese television through Fuji TV, the AKB48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo will also be streamed on the internet this year, as announced, on Google+. The broadcast will start at 5:20pm (Japan Standard Time) on 6 June, with the ceremony being shown in full. At 11pm, the winner’s speech will also be live-streamed on YouTube. However, due to Japanese labor laws, in the case that an under-18 member wins the top spot, that broadcast will be from her home instead.
