FEC to distribute its Funny tales about U.S. military bases in Okinawa on an on-demand video service

January 14, 2012 Ryukyu Shimpo

On January 13, the Performance Corps FEC and C-POPTV commenced a dedicated channel on acTVila, a content-on-demand service, on which they began to distribute the Funny tales about U.S. military bases in Okinawa Part VI. FEC is going to distribute its regular performances, including the series Funny tales about U.S. military bases in Okinawa on the web-based on-demand service. FEC is based in Naha, and its counterpart, Tokyo based Video and Film Distributor C-POPTV, has an office in Chatan.

The acTVila service provides video on-demand for digital television using broadband. Panasonic, Sony, Sharp and other major companies have invested in the company. Currently, 3.47 million television sets are compatible with acTVila and FEC has started a video delivery service. Customers can choose one of two services – a 210 yen one-pack for three days or a pack including everything for seven days, which costs 504 yen.

A spokesperson for C-POPTV said, “In recent years, a new approach has started to take hold by which people who enjoy watching videos and films use the on-demand delivery service directly to their home TVs, rather than from rental video shops. We would like to provide more opportunities for people who live outside of the prefecture to watch FEC’s live performances.”
