Thank you for supporting the new Members arriving in Okinawa.

MBC is the on-base Internet & Cable TV provider to all US military installations on Okinawa.

All on-base residences (family housing, barracks, dorms & TLF) are pre-wired for MBC service. All Members receive free cable TV delivery of American Forces Network (AFN) programming.

A Member who wants MBC services MUST contact MBC directly to establish their account.

Members arriving on ROM cannot visit any MBC office while in ROM. If your arrival is on Installation ROM, please read the “Sponsoring NON-ROM Arrivals” section, as they are allowed to visit any MBC office.

Sponsors are asked to:

1. Direct the Member to the Newcomers PCS Information Page here.

2. Encourage the Member to CALL MBC to establish their MBC account and authorize their Sponsor to pick up their MBC issued equipment upon their arrival. Members may find it easier to call MBC from the United States (using MBC’s stateside number) rather than calling from Japan after arrival. The Member does not need to have their housing assignment to create an account. If the Member is unable to call MBC, we ask that the Sponsor contact us for further instructions.

3. When the member is in-bound, the Sponsor visits any MBC office and collect the MBC issued equipment. If the Member did not provide the housing information, the Sponsor will provide it.

4. The Sponsor delivers the MBC equipment to the Member at their on-base residence.

5. The Member completes the self-installation and activation of their services.


New arrivals in ROM receive their first 5 days of 400Mbps Internet for FREE!

Wireless modem rental included. Promotion valid until 31 October 2021. Exclusive to personnel PCSing into Okinawa on ROM. Arrivals in Installation ROM are not eligible.
Other conditions / restrictions may apply. Contact MBC for additional information.  



Sponsors supporting Members arriving in Okinawa NOT subject to ROM:

1. Direct the Member to the Newcomers PCS Information Page here.

2. Upon arrival, take the Member to any MBC office so the Member can establish their MBC Internet and cable TV account. Click here for office hours and locations.

3. MBC issues the Member the equipment for their services.

4. The Member returns home and follows the simple self-installation process to activate their services at their on-base residence.
