Anime Network Issuse A Call To Arms For All Anime Fans

Date: Tuesday December 7th 2004 [17:08] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Anime > TV

The Otaku News Crew have just received a newsletter from Anime Network the cable and satellite channel that broadcasts nothing but anime (yay).

They've issued a "call to arms for all Anime Fans" with the headline:
"Anime Fans of America: YOUR TIME IS NOW!"
The newsletter states that Anime Network's continued operation and expansion is in jeopardy and to help improve things the channel wants anime fans to either fax or e-mail the cable companies' decision makers directly via www.theanimenetwork.com. The Anime Network also advise you to get everyone you know to do the same. You can even phone Comcast directly on (215) 665-1700 and say that you'll switch for Anime Network.

The Otaku News crew are uncertain how necessary this is, if it's a marketing ploy from the very clever folks at Anime Network, or if they are indeed in trouble and need fan support.

New Anime Channel To Hit North America?

Date: Saturday September 25th 2004 [9:26] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Anime > TV

The Financial Times are reporting that Sony and Comcast are planning to launch at least three new TV channels in a joint venture. Sony and Comcast are still in the planning stages, but Sony are very keen to launch a US version of Animax - Sony's anime channel which is already established in Asia and Latin America.

At the moment it seems that it everything is still speculative. The Otaku News crew are wondering if the success of ADV's very own Anime Network is influencing the executives at Sony to launch Animax in the US.

UK readers will also note that Sony Home Entertainment use the Animax label on their UK DVD releases (Memories, Tokyo Godfathers).
