POPTV Philippines is launching ‘Bento’, an all-new anime channel in the POPTV Pinas app that offers hundreds of anime titles including simulcasts fresh from Japan.
The move is part of POPTV’s vision of becoming the ultimate one-stop entertainment service for Filipinos. After offering a slate of local blockbuster movies and Filipino-dubbed Asian content via POPTV, and Filipino-dubbed kid shows via POPTV Kids for the mass market Filipino families, the Singapore-based streaming service now has its eyes set on hardcore anime lovers.
With Bento, POPTV is also introducing AVOD and PVOD packages that offer both ad-supported and premium viewing. In its premium tier, users can access premium titles including weekly simulcasts.
Headlining this new anime service are simulcast airings of hit anime series “Spy Family Part 2,” “Beast Tamer,” and “Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 3.”
Bento also offers hit titles like “Mob Psycho 100,” “Assassination Classroom,” “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures,” the award-winning Filipino anime series “Barangay 143” as well as Filipino-dubbed versions of “Jujutsu Kaisen,” “Sing Yesterday for Me,” and “Horimiya.”
POPTV Bento will be available starting October 26.
To experience Bento, download the POPTV PINAS app on Google Play, Huawei App Gallery, Samsung Galaxy store, and Apple App Stores. Subscriptions can be purchased via load deduction through SMART or Google Pay, or maybe transacted via credit/debit card or GCash app. It is also available on Shopee, Lazada, all branches of M Lhuillier and RD Pawnshops nationwide, and in sari-sari stores in key cities in Luzon.
