Greetings everyone,

I am a non-asian go follower and I really want to follow professional go. I have no idea how to do that. Even here people are posting results of matches but I have no idea how are they watching them. Also, where do people learn about schedules etc?

So I would be extremely grateful if someone can post a place for me to learn about schedules, upcoming matches etc. Also I only speak english (and french to some degree, if that helps).

My sincerest regards!

Hi AlperenYasar,

If you are in Japan, Korea, or China ( which you probably aren't ), there's more up-to-date coverage on TV, in newspapers, and magazines, etc.

The Nihon Kiin website has schedules of matches.
IGS and other servers have certain live relays.

Various apps have pro games databases (e.g. SmartGo, etc. )

Some youtubers upload NHK TV tourneys:
Recorded: Nov 19, 2018. TV Broadcast Dec 23, 2018. Youtube: Dec 31, 2018.

Thanks a lot EdLee! Though I'm afraid NHK website is not that useful if you do not know Japanese. I wish we also had such magazines for following pro area :(

That was exactly what I've been looking for! Are they also streaming games online? Or are there any websites that do that?

You're welcome. Yes, currently the auto-machine translation still has many errors, but I'm hopeful eventually they'll have super-human level machine translations. :)

If you want to watch broadcasts of the boards of top pro games, you can do so on the various go servers (WBaduk, Tygem, Fox, Yike, IGS). I use the WBaduk android app (it has names in English, though event names in CJK so it's some guesswork pairing up to the listings on Mr Kin's gotoeveryone site). If you want live video broadcast that's harder to find; there are paid services like Korean Baduk TV (no longer available abroad?) and Chinese Weiqi TV (I think foreigners can register).

Edit: Yike has a browser version, here is the live broadcast listing page: https://home.yikeweiqi.com/#/live. Either recognise the pros from their little pictures or use google translate / lookup names in Sensei's or https://www.goratings.org/zh/
