VIZ Media, the largest publisher, distributor and licensor of manga, anime and graphic novels in North America, announced the launch of Neon Alley, a 24-hour anime channel featuring the world’s best titles (dubbed in English and uncut), exclusively on the PlayStation®Network and the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) system.
"The Neon Alley premiere on PlayStation 3 is a landmark event for anime fans," said Ken Sasaki, President and Chief Executive Officer for VIZ Media. "Neon Alley combines the appointment viewing and joy of discovery of traditional broadcast TV with the ease of subscribing to a dedicated anime channel. Fans will find all of their favorite series alongside the best of the best new series they didn’t even know they were missing!"
Starting today, the Neon Alley application can be downloaded from PlayStation Network for the PS3 system. The subscription-based service will be available for a low $6.99 per month. For a limited time only, a one-week free trial will be available for fans who sign up at NeonAlley.com.
Neon Alley’s schedule includes a mix of action, adventure, sci-fi, supernatural, fantasy, and horror anime, uncut and dubbed into English, and presented in HD (when available). "Blue Exorcist", "Inuyasha: The Final Act", "Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan", and "Tiger & Bunny" will make their English-language debut exclusively on the channel. Other shows such as "Death Note", "Naruto" and "One Piece" will also be broadcast.
Neon Alley is the first platform designed to be studio agnostic, featuring titles from other anime producers and content distributors, including Aniplex, FUNimation, NTV, Taiseng, Anime News Network, and Empire Distribution. Members can also share real-time thoughts and status updates using social media technology from Tout (Tout.com), some of which will air on the network.
Neon Alley will continue to unveil more of its programming lineup, special offers, new acquisitions and other partnerships throughout the next several months.
