Sofa Screen

#1 Post by CastorTroy81 » Thu Apr 07, 2011 11:40 am

So I registered as a member of the Electric Sofa site just to see the message boards
http://www.electric-sofa.com

Dunno if anyone else is a member but they were asking for a list of anime movies people want to see and one person seems really keen to see the likes of Nar.uto and Dragon Ball movies as well as Studio Ghibli movies. But then someone else has weighed in saying Channel 4 keep showing the Ghibli movies anyway so listed a better variety of films.

But the most recent reply from Electric Sofa was
"we've appointed an agent to go out to licence them for us, we'll update you as soon as we can"

Is it a bad sign that I've never heard of Electric Sofa?

Nope. I only heard of them when Project mentioned them in the New Season tv thread. 3 new channels (Sofa Screen, FilmGB and Sofa Stars) starting up but no start date yet. And they plan on showing anime movies on Sofa Screen. But not every week. Will be sharing the slot with a Martial Arts movie or something. But then they'll probably get about 4 or 5 movies and repeat them.

Hehe, the new Sony channel is a total bust :) So much for the 'OMFG!!! Sony have bought an EPG slot so we must be getting Animax!!1' lot ;) Instead we get the 'Sony Entertainment Television' channel, basically 24hrs of TV aimed at bored women.

reruns of Dawson's Creek :puke:

And was looking on Ofcom. Couldn't find a licence for them

As for SonyTV, yeah I saw that. They're showing Dawson's Creek reruns and think they'll be showing the final season of Las Vegas at some point.

Anyway for the Sofa Screen message board I just posted on it saying be better to not show Nar.uto movies. But my reasoning was that not much sense showing a movie spun off from a series if not showing the series. Be just as well to show Bleach or Pokemon movies, if that was the case.
