Press Release About SeiRogaiTV Soft Launch

A press release was recently published on PRTimes, one of the largest press release news sites in Japan, to announce the upcoming soft launch of SeiRogaiTV!

Our brand-new service “SeiRogaiTV” involves developing an original online content distribution service specializing in bringing Southeast Asian TV series and movies to Japanese audiences. SeiRogai, Inc. will pursue an expansion into the new industry of online distribution services, in addition to traditional advertising media and TV show production in collaboration with cable TV broadcasters.

Coming Soon at: https://www.seirogai.tv/


Although the COVID-19 outbreak brought the normal day-to-day functioning of the media industry to a standstill and halted all productions, the pandemic has made an optimistic impact on the global OTT (Over-The-Top) market growth. OTT stands for “over-the-top” and refers to the productized practice of streaming content to customers directly over the web. It represents the future of entertainment — one that is already unfolding.

According to market data, the global OTT market accounted for $110.1 billion in 2018 and is expected to garner $438.5 billion by rowing at a healthy growth rate of 19.1% by 2026. Under the COVID-19 pandemic, the market has garnered $155.6 Billion owing to the impact of the novel coronavirus and stay-home regulations that contributed to a 30% increase in the consumption of online content.

SeiRogai, Inc. plans to develop and build a new OTT distribution service aligned with the future of the TV industry, and aims to diversify the content market in Japan while improving user convenience in content viewing.


*SeiRogaiTV is Proudly Supported by the Government of Japan’s Business Reconstruction Grant.

Background of the Launch of SeiRogaiTV

In recent years, the global market in the media industry has been changing remarkably, and the number of online distribution services has been increasing. Compared to traditional TV services, the demand for video-on-demand (VOD) services, whose content is updated more quickly, has been particularly high, and the global video distribution market is expanding.

In order to meet this demand, SeiRogai Inc. has decided to utilize its extensive international contacts and diverse experience to offer SeiRogaiTV, a service specializing in video distribution of Southeast Asian dramas. Through SeiRogaiTV, we hope to serve as a bridge between Japan and Southeast Asia.


Outline of SeiRogaiTV

SeiRogaiTV is a new initiative that will allow audiences to enjoy Southeast Asian content to their heart’s content.

SeiRogai, Inc. will develop “SeiRogaiTV” using the most advanced digital TV distribution technology, and distribute and provide TV programs centering on popular Southeast Asian dramas. This service will allow viewers to watch the latest dramas and other popular shows and movies from Southeast Asia.

The service will be available on a variety of devices, including PCs, smartphones, and tablets, with a multilingual subtitling service to cater to both domestic and international audiences. Although demand for Southeast Asian dramas is growing in the nation, video on demand (VOD) services focused on Southeast Asia are still few, making this a new and unprecedented endeavor.

We are delighted to be able to deliver our services to you through the realization of this project. In the future, we would like to distribute original programs that represent Japan, especially those with themes such as “revealing the hidden gems of Japan’s diverse regions” and “showcasing the often overlooked vitality of Japan” to the world.


Distribution of a wide variety of genres 

SeiRogaiTV” allows viewers to enjoy Thai movies and TV programs in a variety of genres, from action to romantic comedy, human drama, quiz shows, and more.

SeiRogaiTV will feature TV Series, Movies, and Original Shows

■Offering premium content with a one-coin daily subscription (499 yen or less than USD$3.50)

In addition to the free plan for casual use, we also offer a subscription plan (paid plan: from 499 yen or USD $3.50 per day, as of Oct 2022). With the paid plan, you can enjoy premium content that is not accessible with the free plan. The great appeal of this plan is that you can enjoy your favorite content 24 hours a day for less than “one coin” (in Japan, there is a 500 yen coin).
