SyncTV Brings Japanese Animation to US Mobiles

Internet TV company SyncTV has announced a deal that brings Japanese animation company Dream Link Entertainment (DLE) content to mobile devices, internet-enabled TVs, and Roku set-top boxes. 

The service will be available to Android users via apps, with content distribution centrally managed by DLE via a web interface. 

SyncTVs agreement with DLE enables DLEs US-based content distribution service to its portfolio of content, which includes the award-winning Eagle Talon Secret Society and popular TV titles such as Coffy the Tomb Tyke. DLE is a FLASH animation studio that distributes over the web.

“Experience has taught us that the US youth market respects the originality and style of Japanese animation, so we believe our content will find a welcome home in the United States,” says Ryuta Shiiki, president and executive producer at DLE. “Given that the viewing of video content has become so fragmented recently, we greatly appreciate the ability to quickly reach millions of viewers across different types of media and devices through a single virtual internet broadcast platform from SyncTV.”

“Our agreement with DLE shows just how easily content owners can enter new markets by using SyncTV,” says Yutaka Nagao, general manager at SyncTV Japan. “Anywhere in the world where there are connected devices, there can be a new digital channel or premium application delivering unique content to people who want it. DLE has a great collection of very popular video content, and we are proud of our part in opening up a new market for the studio.”
