VOD Fridays – FUNimation Channel (4/23)
So yesterday was Earth Day. It was also the funeral of former Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren. So you either observed the day in chaos and mayhem (in honor of McLaren) or you observed it by conserving energy, recycling your co-mingled trash or walked somewhere instead of driving. Or, you spent the day reading those amusing Twitter hashtag posts of #animeconprotip. Will it become a trending tweet? We shall see.
Here are the Comcast VOD updates for the week:
On Demand –> The Cutting Edge –> Funimation Anime –> Funimation Platinum (PPV VOD)
- Case Closed Movie 5 Countdown to Heaven
On Demand –> The Cutting Edge –> Funimation Anime –> Funimation Free (Free VOD)
- Case Closed ep 77
- Black Cat ep 22
- Buso Renkin ep 10
- Black Blood Brothers ep 10
- Gundam SEED Destiny ep 48
Its a light refresh week. Next month is the VOD channel’s one year anniversary since its launch on Comcast. To celebrate we will unveil the new promotion behind the “Get The FUNimation Channel” campaign. Also, we are going to air sneak peek episodes of One Piece Seventh Voyage on PPV VOD in May. One Piece back on TV – YAY!
If you want to know what’s currently airing on the linear channel, go ahead and check out the schedule online after the jump. Programming is subject to change without notice.
And now for something completely different… Have you gone to UNIQLO‘s site recently? Guess what? Those Toei t-shirts I mentioned back in January? They are in the US now and selling like hot cakes (of course). They can’t seem to expand these stores fast enough in the US. In Tokyo however, they have recently opened new stores in Shibuya and one, I think, in Odaiba. And remember, these t-shirts aren’t sold everywhere. So designs are really unique according to country/city/territory. So what I bought in Tokyo back in February you won’t find in NYC’s SoHo store.
They even have this fun interactive mash-up where you can integrate your Twitter feed into UNIQLO’s movie. Pretty cool. Check mine out.
Remember – like the 2010 US Census, you make a difference in getting The FUNimation Channel linear service launched on your cable or satellite system. Only you – the viewer/fan – can make this happen. We are half-way there. They (your cable or satellite operator) just need to hear YOU. Check out my post from last week on how to tweet Comcast and others and letting them know you want The FUNimation Channel linear in your programming lineup. Get Heard! Be Counted!
