Unfortunately, that was not a promotion. The developers at ZooVision found a problem within the app’s subscription service, so it was disabled from being downloaded in the App Store while they submitted an upgrade and Apple approved it. The app was never meant to be free to download- that apparently was an error that occurred when the app was disabled for download in the App Store.
The Anime Network Mobile app for the iPhone & iTouch, in it’s past & current form, is a separate VOD service from both our Cable/Satellite VOD & Online Player services. The $6.95 cost to initially download the app is actually that first month’s subscription fee for this mobile VOD service.
We are planning future apps for not only the iPhone/iTouch, but other mobile devices and carriers. More details will be available in the coming months, when these apps are nearing deployment.
We apologize for any confusion that may have been caused by the errors in the App Store the other day, as well as the app being unavailable for a period of time. The team of developers at ZooVision acted as quickly as they could to rectify the problem and get the service back online, so that our users would receive the highest quality service that can be offered.
If anyone has further questions about the Anime Network Mobile app and its subscription service, please feel free to email us at email@example.com or post them here in the forums.
