The Huffington Post, which has expanded to a number of countries including Canada, Italy, the U.K., France and most recently to Germany, will launch in Japan next week, says Roy Sekoff , founding editor of the Huffington Post and president of HuffPost Live, in this interview with Beet.TV

A report in the Japanese media says the launch is set for Tuesday.

We spoke with him earlier in the week at the AOL Digital NewFront event.  He talks about the evolution of HuffPost Live with its new cable deal and plans to get the show on the Microsoft Xbox platform.
