Streaming platform POPTV recently launched Bento in the Philippines, an all new anime channel that offers hundreds of anime titles.
While POPTV already streams a range of anime titles, this movie aims to give Pinoy anime fans a more convenient way of catching up on the latest titles, all in one channel.
In Bento, POPTV is introducing new VOD packages for both ad supported and premium viewing which includes weekly simulcasts of select seasonal anime.
The anime shows that are part of the simulcast include Spy Family Part 2, Beast Tamer, and Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 3. Bento is also offering other hit shows like Mob Psycho 100, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and more. There are even Filipino-dubbed versions of Jujutsu Kaisen and Horimiya on the channel.
“Filipinos are among the top consumers of anime content in the world. Bento has been created to address that market. A comprehensive Anime service that makes titles available easily and cheaply (or for free) is the best defense for anime IP owners against widespread piracy. Our launch slate of over hundred titles will continue to grow through the next few quarters until we become the ultimate destination for Filipino anime fans,” said Jyotirmoy Saha, Founder & CEO of POPTV.
“We want Filipinos to have effortless access to the best anime in the world. We want to enable anime fans to be able to express their love for anime and get fulfillment without having to rely on dubious sources. Lahat ng ginagawa namin ay para sa Pinoy anime fans kaya sana suportahan at tangkilikin nila ang Bento. We have a lot in store for the community that we will progressively roll out over the months to come.” added Jackeline Chua, COO of POPTV.
POPTV Bento is available now in the Philippines. To get access, download the POPTV PINAS app on Google Play, Huawei App Gallery, Samsung Galaxy store, and Apple App Stores.
