Anime Network VOD Reports/Updates/Questions Thread (2018)


FWIW, it doesn’t seem to be happening on DTV’s program guide.


Xfinity still has it as Anime Network.

I’d ask some of my co-workers who have Spectrum (Bright House), but this week I’m on vacation…



No, it’s steady as she goes over here, same old Cutting Edge, same trinity of tabs.

Oh, and all of this week’s episodes arrived, on both Cutting Edge and On Demand–though I haven’t watched any of 'em yet.

(Updates Received/Not Received 9/20/18 :: Time Warner Cable :: Albany, NY :: Zip Code 12203)


My cable box rebooted itself. (I love when that happens)

Cutting Edge channel is back and all shows now accounted for. That was bizarre.


Another fine performance by DirecTV for Phoenix, AZ

You also got collection 2 of Argevollen (episodes 13-24) correct @Renton721?

It’s listed in your report, but you didn’t make mention of it, so just wanted to make sure.


Well that accounts for the other 24, SD and HD versions. Other than the one listed as “New”, it had to be from an existing series that Frontier added the second half to. That’s why this time I added the episodes. I knew at some point they would add more season episodes rather that a new show (which is easier to pick up on).


Spectrum formerly TWC: Kilauea (Town), Kauai (County), HI 96754

I can confirm that everything that was scheduled for 9-20-18 update has arrived :sunglasses:.

The only error is that now all the episodes for the September updates have extended episode lengths 24-32mins, but it’s only a visual problem except with Heavens Memo Pad Ep1 which runs past 32mins.

As for that missing August 23rd update…unfortunately no miracles occurred, but I managed to watch the missing episodes for the series I wanted finish via streaming service free trial :smile:.


Update to Report for September 20th 2018

Rin-ne Season 2 is gone!


I quit trying to watch a long time ago.
I do however, occasionally, check to see if anything has changed.
For what it’s worth, I DO have ONE anime titled correctly under “Action Zone” … Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee 18.

Until this is fixed, I have a lot of other anime sources I can watch…


DirecTV FL 33563

Haven’t been reporting regularly lately because the channel has become such a giant cluster f and has been for months now. Did they just give up on this channel? I can’t even keep track of all the things that missing or the haphazard way episodes are titled…it’s ridiculous.


The report for this week & all follow-ups was compiled and sent to Anime Network today.

Also on report:

  • DirecTV episode titles instead of anime titles (As of 2 weeks ago, this was pushed to AN Upper Management for investigation)
  • Comcast/Xfinity - duplicate episodes (Yes, these are free episodes that will be introduced for new & existing series to encourage more subscriptions)
  • Comcast/Xfinity - content disappearing despite expiration dates
  • Comcast/Xfinity question about Collection 2s
  • Spectrum episode length.
  • asking about FVOD schedules being out of alphabetical order
  • SVOD schedules incorrect (must use blog instead of online schedule)

NOTE - I will be making these official posts in the Staff Color (purple), so they can be easily spotted from now on.

Please let me know if I’ve missed anything!

Thanks!! :slight_smile: :confounded:


At least that’s one question resolved.


Comcast’s schedule has been updated somewhat. It’s still not 100% as it shows the no longer available Watamote expiring 7/6/19 and a movie I’ve never received Royal Space Force, but a significant improvement nonetheless.

Shaw, Verizon FiOS, Optimum, and Charter Spectrum still have the broken links.

For the other SVOD companies with a functional schedule, I cannot confirm nor deny what has been fixed.

It also appears the schedule for FVOD has been updated for October. (Y’all got Princess Resurrection this month… :worried: )


There have been occasional wishes that more people were active on these forums. Why not occasionally replace the monster/boat bump with one that mentions these forums? You’re not getting any money for that bump anyway and you can still put the TAN tag along with the forum mention.


That honestly would be a wonderful idea. Although, the bump doesn’t appear in Comcast ANOD at all.

Well, except for that one weird K-ON listing…


DirecTV Indiana 46544
Early returns from the Hoosier state:
Here: Anon. Noise 12, Medaka 1 & 2, SCD L2 7 & 8, Windy 7 & 8
Not Here (again!) Heaven’s 5 & 6, Letter Bee 25 (finale), YQ 11
Still Not Here: Everything previously reported as missing…still is.
Observation: It seems to me that either TAN, Mystery Middleman, DTV, or a combination of the three completely abandoned the series Heaven’s Memo Pad, Photo Kano, Letter Bee and Yozakura Quartet. In the entire month of September, only 2 episode from any of these four series arrived. I even attempted to grab the free trial for partner HIDIVE to at least catch up, and even that failed.
I believe the late, great O.A. Phillips put it best: “It ain’t funny”.
EDIT: Including link to the quote, because it’s the right thing to do…

Thanks :grin:


Sorry to hear but how did HiDive fail? Typically the “7 day trial free” version gives you shows ad-free and English dubs. After the trial, I had it for a while, you just get access to English subtitles and ads.
