Singer and actor Rain now has his own Internet protocol television (IPTV) channel where fans can catch glimpses of the star from morning to night, starting next month.

The singer's agency, J. Tune Entertainment, announced Friday that SK Broad & TV has decided to open an exclusive channel for him. This is the first time for a local celebrity to have his or her own channel on IPTV. The channel name has yet to be made.

Rain's channel will offer various categories that will reveal everything about the singer.

The "History" category will have music videos from his latest five albums, along with clips of his videos, while the "Designer Rain" category will offer fans the chance to peek behind the scenes of the singer's fashion brand, Six to Five.

Other categories will include commercials, performances, live concerts, photo shoots and other clips of Rain working as a singer, actor and designer, including unreleased material.

"As this is the first time for a local celebrity to have an exclusive channel on television, we feel a great deal of responsibility. We will put forth our efforts to bring more exclusive channels for artists in the long run. This channel has given us the opportunity to look for ways artists can get closer to and communicate better with fans", J.Tune Entertainment said.

Rain, who is the goodwill ambassador for Seoul city, will hold his 2009 Global Fan Meeting in Seoul Sunday at Kyung Hee University. It will be the first time for the singer to appear in front of fans in a year. His upcoming movie, "Ninja Assassin", will be in theaters in November.
