Anime Network VOD Reports/Updates/Questions Thread (2009 Archive)

Thanks for reporting the issues with Time Warner’s sevice that some of us have been experiencing.

I appreciate the fact that the Anime Network listens and tries to address issues even when they are really out of your control.

I understand the issue with Aria the Natural, and was glad you took a moment to explain it. I’ve enjoyed the series and the prequel enough that I’ll likely purchase it the next time it is on sale via RightStuf.

Thanks again for your efforts.

Full update received. Legends of the Dark King eps. 9 & 10 also came back after disappearing last Friday. :slight_smile: But 6 shows from November 5 are still missing. :frowning:

#669

As noted by several TWC viewers in different parts of the country, TAN On Demand anime episodes that were previously noted as missing for the 11/5 update are still missing for TWC Carson, CA 90745 after the 11/26 update:

Aria the Natural 3
Babel II 10
He Is My Master 3
Revolutionary Girl Utena 14
Wedding Peach 32
You’re Under Arrest 7

Like many of the fans of TAN, we applaud and appreciate the efforts you have made with the cable company and their VOD handler to deal with the issue of missing episodes (the 11/12 episodes were added to the following week’s updates, including those previously scheduled for that date!). It seems that the VOD handler even noted that one of this week’s updates (Legends of the Dark King ep. 11) was resubmitted!

#675

Good news for everyone. I know a lot of people were concerned about the upcoming expiration dates on the missing episodes. It’s good to know TAN listened and found a way to fix the issue. Luckily, none of the shows I’ve been watching have really been affected by the issues on DirecTV, but I hope they will get those resolved as well.

I don’t usually have any problems with the VOD service as the shows scheduled always show up on time. However, the sequence for Fist of the North Star gets a bit screwed up after Ep. 08. I don’t know if I’m the only one with this problem. The shows descriptions are correct in the VOD menu but the wrong episodes were uploaded.

Here is what I have :

  • Episode 09 is supposed to be “A woman’s battle” but the episode showing up is “The King of Fist office is falling” (which is supposed to be ep. 12, so it has skipped 3 episodes and jumped to the second-to-last show)

  • Episode 10 is “A Woman’s battle” (which is supposed to be ep. 09)

  • Episode 11 is “Fists smashed in hot sand” (which is supposed to be ep. 10)

It’s no big deal, I’ll just tape the “wrong ep. 09” before it gets removed for when I’ll get to Ep. 12. I just hope that, since all the episodes are out of sequence by one show, I won’t get a repeat of Ep. 12 when Ep. 13 is supposed to show up and miss the series finale, that would suck.

Legends of the Dark King ep 9 but also 10 (ep 10 was ep 9) were pulled. Anime Network sent an order to the cable/sat companies to have it pulled and replaced with the correct ones (this was 2-3 weeks ago). 11 and 12 were supposed to have been replaced.

2 weeks ago, Legends of the Dark King ep 9 was posted for free on the Anime Network Online Player as well, as a second option for people to watch the correct episode.

I just realized this subject was talked about 2-3 pages ago. It was stupid of me not to have read the thread a few pages back. Thank you for the explaination.

I received my update : the good news is FOTNS is back on having the right schedule with Ep. 12. However, the other shows (09-10-11) are still out of sequence and, therefore, I’m screwed with Ep. 11 (The Holy Emperor Cometh).

I hope Cogeco will eventually put the correct Ep. 11 availlable but unfortunately, as i have seen in the past, their track record of rectifiying VOD mistakes ain’t too good.
