KIKU Television, a channel in Hawaii, announced that it will stop airing Japanese and Filipino shows starting from June 28, 2021. Instead, it will air ShopHQ 24/7. Shows that are ongoing will wrap up by June 28 so that viewers can get closure. KIKU and other stations owned by RNN National LLC in cities such as New York and Los Angeles will be affected by this decision. [Thanks, ANN!]
KIKU Television has aired tokusatsu, anime, and television shows such as Abarenbo Shogun in the past. In the past, KIKU ran a FUNimation block, airing episodes of Baki the Grappler and Kiddy Grade. Currently, it is airing Japanese shows such as Partners and Iryu. According to KIKU Television’s Facebook page, their program schedule will be slightly confusing so that they can air finales for shows such as Kita no Kuni Kara. The only show that they will not be able to complete is Partners 15.
Other television channels owned by RNN include KSCI Los Angeles, WRNN New York City, and KUBE Houston. iMedia lists these channels, among others, on their press release about ShopHQ. Over 20 million homes will start to see RNN channels air ShopHQ in late June.
