Funimation Entertainment’s own Funimation Channel has reached new distributing deals with the nation’s #1 cable operator Comcast and #2 satellite provider Dish Network.
Starting May 1, 2009 Comcast will carry Funimation Channel in a Free VOD/Events VOD setup (similar to TAN). The free content will be under “The Cutting Edge” while the PPV stuff will be under “Movies and Events”.
Dish Network will also carry the Events/PPV version as well. (Dish Network is also carrying TAN, there is a new Dish Network schedule up).
AT&T will also carry Funimation Channel but details will be released at a later date.
Verizon FiOS will add the Free VOD lineup in addition to carrying the 24/7 service.
On their programming front a new title for the channel will be Devil May Cry. DMC is the first former ADV/Sojitz title to be added to their channel.
