Took another look at the Netflix listing. Its not the first six episodes but volumes so they have the first entire season up for streaming. You just have to watch each volume as a movie instead of individual episodes.
Hulu also has all 26 episodes available now.
Wow, it’s cheaper buying the first season off iTunes then buying the DVD’s. I think i’m gonna do that right now.

The new Space Battleship Yamato 2199 television anime series will be 26 episodes long, and it will be split into seven films for advance screenings at events. The first two episodes will be shown as the first “film” on April 7, before the television series itself premieres. The next six “film” screenings will each be made of four television episodes. The new project is based on the classic 1974-1975 space opera anime series.
The anime’s main cast — Takayuki Sugo, Daisuke Ono, Kenichi Suzumura, and Houko Kuwashima — will appear at a “launch ceremony” event on February 18 with some of the anime’s staffers.

Cowboy Bebop, Evangelion actor joins cast for 2nd installment premiering June 30
The staff of the Space Battleship Yamato 2199 television anime series and film project announced on Friday that voice actor Kouichi Yamadera will voice Lord Dessler (Leader Desslok in Space Battleship Yamato’s American adaptation Star Blazers) in the second installment of the series.
Yamadera, who has voice roles in more than 200 anime, including Ninja Scroll’s Jubei Kibagami, Cowboy Bebop’s Spike Spiegel, Neon Genesis Evangelion’s Ryouji Kaji, and Ghost in the Shell’s Togusa, previously voiced Captain Susumu Kodai in the Space Battleship Yamato Resurrection film. Yamadera will be replacing Masatô Ibu in the role of Lord Dessler.
The film distributor Shochiku began streaming a promotional video for the second installment in the series on Thursday.
The second film, which will cover episodes 3-6, will open in 10 theaters in Japan for two weeks starting on June 30. The Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume of the second film will then ship on July 27, and it will also be available for purchase at the theaters showing the film.
We might get lucky and somebody will license it. Main issue is definitely going to be the price for said rights. Definitely have the fandom over here to support the new series. I’d have it on preorder as soon as it’s announced. (Personally I’d love for AnimEigo to get the rights, just because they do (imo) the best job with their set releases. Liner Notes FTW!) But just hope somebody gets the rights. If it gets released in North America, I expect it to be subbed only, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Yamato Crew, the official Space Battleship Yamato community, announced on Wednesday that the third Space Battleship Yamato 2199 film will run in 10 Japanese theaters from October 13 to October 26. The third film, titled Hateshinaki Kōkai (Endless Voyage), is composed of episodes 7 through 10 of this Space Battleship Yamato remake.
According to Yamato Crew, the third film will deal with contact with the Galamis (Gamilon) enemy and offer an original story that delves into areas that the first Space Battleship Yamato anime did not explore. Toshihiro Kawamoto revealed at the AM2 convention this month that he worked as an animation director on episode 10.
