I also have Dish Network and get TV Japan. There are some good programs that come on. My favorites are TV Champion and Tsurube no Kazokuni Kanpai, but there are other interesting shows on there as well, such as Tameshite Gatten, NHK Specials, samurai dramas, and Nihon-jin no Shitsumon. They also have good kids' programs too, like Okaasan to Issho and Inai Inai Baa.
To me, it's interesting. I don't think it stinks. Of course, if you're looking for anime and the likes, you won't find it there, unless you count Nintama Rantaro.
