VOD Fridays – FUNimation Anime (7/16)

My very poor attempt to hide the names of entrants.

We’re about 5 days away from San Diego Comic-Con, aka Geek Retreat Week. FUNimation Channel will be there at booth #4135. We’re across the CBS booth. Our contest for the new 42″ HDTV set ends on July 28, so hop on over to the Get FUNimation Channel site and enter your info for a chance to win.
While at Comic-Con, we have another thing to introduce and hope would become a mainstay. We are giving away limited edition FUNimation Channel t-shirts at the show. In order to pick up the exclusive shirt, you would need to:

1) Stop by the booth and fill out the channel request card

2) After filling out the card, you tear and keep the top part of the card and…

3)  follow FUNimation Channel on Twitter (FUNiChan)

4) We will Tweet t-shirt giveaway times.

The supply is VERY LIMITED so when I Tweet the time, calmly head over to the FUNimation booth, show me the top part of the channel request card and Voila! Free limited edition shirt. The shirt is given away on a first-come, first-served basis – fyi. I’ll give you a hint – it won’t be during mid-day. 😉

In addition to the t-shirt giveaway, when you fill out the channel request card you are still entering to win a $250 anime prize pack. We haven’t announced the winner from AX yet. We will as soon as they are confirmed.

In August, we should have some news about the channel expanding. We think you will be pleased. A press release will be posted as soon as it is approved. But for now, just patiently wait for the news. Feel free to guess though. 🙂

And now to list what’s up on Comcast VOD:

On Demand –> The Cutting Edge –> Funimation Anime–> Funimation Platinum

On Demand –> The Cutting Edge –> Funimation Anime –> Funimation Free

The awesome folks over at Bang Zoom Entertainment put together some promos for us. Take a look at this month’s highlights for Comcast On Demand:

  1. My cable is provided by verizon, so it comes with the funimation channel. However, do you think you could start including updates about their OnDemand selections, as well? It seems to take two months for a new selection to be included, and it isn’t very organized.

    Please and Thank you! C:

  2. okay, so we know that they’re announcing SOMETHING big at comic con. please please please please please let it be sailor moon >.<

  3. Dear Funimation,

    My current cable provider, Comcast, did not update the latest episodes of Suzuka last week and did not this week. If you guys can assist in this error, it would be most appreciative. Thanks in advance.


    P.S. – Chicago, 60516

  4. What’s up Funi! I love your work however last week when you started showing Kenichi S1 episode 2 was and is missing, what’s up with that? Chicago 60649

  5. When is the schedule for the linear channel going to be updated, the link starts on the 5th of July and has been like that since then?
