Los Angeles-based Asia Releasing is to launch an on-demand video service, Chopflix for North American fans of Asian movies.

Chopflix will start with 1,000 library titles and add six new features per month.

It will feature Japanese anime, Korean drama, big budget Chinese and Hong Kong action films, blockbuster Bollywood titles, Thai martial arts series, comedies from Malaysia and horror films from Singapore.

“I have been passionately involved in the distribution of Asian films in the west for the past 8 years in Australia, New Zealand and North America through various entities including China Lion Entertainment which pioneered the reintroduction of Chinese theatrical releases in North America,” said Milt Barlow, who founded Asia Releasing, and before that China Lion Releasing.

Chopflix will take advantage of the new efficient delivery technologies to be able to provide a wider footprint to all Asians residing outside Asia as well as giving high quality ‘best of Asia’ movies to western audiences.

The new OTT service will make use of the Vimeo on Demand platform.
