VOD Fridays – FUNimation Channel (9/10)
Hello everyone! Summer may have ended but things are still hot here at the network. We started this week off with the launch of FUNimation Channel HD and in a couple of weeks, we’ll announce the carrier who will offer the channel’s true HD feed to you – our devoted fans & viewers. To the rest of the viewers on other carriers, your cable and satellite operator can pick up our channel just as long as viewers pick up their phones or send emails and demand that their provider offers it. I want to clarify some of the misconceptions that seem to be floating around out there. First off, the standard definition feed no longer exists. It was taken down last Sunday at 11:59 PM EST. At 12 midnight on Monday, the HD feed went live and the new schedule went live as well. Second, Verizon FiOS is not showing viewers our true HD feed. What they are currently offering to viewers is a down-converted version of our HD feed. To get the channel’s true HD feed, TELL VERIZON FIOS THAT YOU WANT YOUR FUNIMATION CHANNEL HD! As soon as our second announcement rolls along, you may want to let your carrier know that other providers are giving viewers FUNimation Channel HD in true HD – (insert cable/satellite operator here) should too. One channel. One feed. One lineup.
Now more than ever, we’re asking every anime fan and anime club across the US to get involved in our tireless march to launch the HD channel on all systems. Visit the Get FUNimation Channel page to get all the info and join the movement.
Before I list what’s on VOD, we want to let viewers know that Comcast is currently undergoing a major overhaul on their servers that hold VOD titles. This is out of our control since the operator, Comcast, is making these changes on their systems. Some cities will see less content while others will have the regular offering. This is another reason why its important for viewers to contact Comcast and let them know you want the 24/7 FUNimation Channel HD.
