Japan’s DLE to Launch New US Animation Channels with SyncTV


DLE mounts US-based content distribution service through multiple digital channels including Roku and Android devices


SUNNYVALE, CALIF. (July 11, 2011) – SyncTV, the leader in delivering television services to the largest set of Internet connected TVs, mobile devices, and other service-enabled devices, today announced an agreement with leading Japanese animation studio, Dream Link Entertainment (DLE) to distribute DLE’s original animation content to US audiences. By using SyncTV’s digital video distribution platform, DLE will instantly become an extensive service that can reach millions of US viewers through multiple digital channels including Roku set-top-boxes, Android-powered mobile devices, connected TVs, and more. SyncTV will create custom DLE-branded channels via device “apps” that are centrally managed by DLE via a single web-based interface.

SyncTV’s agreement with DLE enables DLE’s US-based content distribution service to its portfolio of original content, which includes the award-winning Eagle Talon Secret Society and popular TV titles like Coffy the Tomb Tyke. DLE is widely recognized in Japan as the leading FLASH animation studio and an early leader in web video distribution.

“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,” said Ryuta Shiiki, President/Executive Producer of 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,” said Yutaka Nagao, General Manager, 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.”
