VOD in Japan with “Gyao Station”

Continuing the theme of Silverlight wins in the region, the Gyao (Japan’s leading VOD portal, owned by USEN, a large film distributor in market) application that went up in February is a nifty mini-portal that culls media options available for playback into a subject/gallery with nice UX.  The app is data driven so Gyao has been very happy using it to program content from their "tail", "new arrival", or "promotion" inventory.  This app is only really viewable/consumable to its fullest when you are within Japan IP address, given the content protection/rights issues associated with a VOD app like this.
