A group of 21 broadcasters, telecommunications firms and electronics makers, including NHK and Sony Corp. (6758.TO), will form a development partnership next month to help Japan segue to ultrahigh-definition television, the Nikkei reported in its Thursday morning edition.

They aim to see Japan take the lead in spreading next-generation TV broadcasting worldwide, which could help domestic TV manufacturers regain lost market share.
