**ATTN: COMCAST VIEWERS** FUNimation Channel VOD
PROGRAMMING CHANGES TO COMCAST VOD
The month of November is going to show some very drastic changes to Comcast’s VOD menu look. You guys have probably heard something about Project Infinity from Comcast. Jump here if you don’t know what it is or how it affects you. The section called MOVIES & EVENTS on the VOD menu will disappear starting around 11/19 (it may be sooner in some cities). Instead, all the FUNimation Anime content that was available in that PPV VOD section will now be consolidated under THE CUTTING EDGE/FUNIMATION ANIME section. So now free and ppv VOD will be accessible via that section. Some viewers have experienced a lack of refreshed content since last Friday. If you are one of those affected, please list in the comment section below your city and zip code where you receive Comcast VOD. And list what titles (if any) are currently listed on your VOD menu. I’m not sure how each headend is dealing with this new VOD architecture, but hopefully I’ll be able to talk to operations and get info.
Comcast is trying to pave a way for us to grow and offer more anime titles by 2010. Obviously I can’t say much more until then but I know it will be as awesome as rainbows and unicorns.
And I know I mentioned last week about hinting some changes to the linear channel. I’ve got some hints…but I can’t reveal them yet. I know. The suspense is killing you, isn’t it? All I can say is…to be continued… 😥
