The samples came from MBS (ARIB captions one) and Tokyo MX (the PID
switch one), if that's what you mean. The channels themselves
shouldn't matter too much as all broadcasts in Japan generally follow
the ARIB specs/recommendations as far as how they're multiplexed.
They're part of various samples I've been capturing in Japan along the

The text coding is ARIB STD-24 and together with the EN300-468 Table00
one I linked both were nack'd at upstream due to not being encodings
utilized in general computing, so the iconv modules now live in the
linuxtv repository*. Which means that they most likely are not
packaged anywhere.

Libaribb24 is another implementation of the ARIB STD-B24 text coding
(in addition to the subtitle part), and I've been so far utilizing it
in my WIP branch.
