Yes, but they are still unfortunately more sparse than you might think. On the contrary, reliable and easy WiFi is another difficult one to find.

Some train stations offer reliable WiFi and they may have cafes in them. I believe Starbucks is most reliable for WiFi as well as some Lawson's with sit in eat areas.

You may also need a VPN from the states to view some services that allow you to watch the American shows.

Where will you be staying? Most hotels and many guesthouses provide fast internet connections that are sufficient for streaming TV. Also what do you use to stream tv? Services such as hulu will require a vpn or dns spoofing service to watch. Otherwise, watching streaming tv at internet cafes may not be possible.
