(UK) FilmFour goes Free, takes anime with it.
As most of our brittish users might know (all of the 5 of us), Film Four, the Film channel from our Channel Four has aired Studio Gibili films for a while now and now they are going to become both "Free to air" and availible on "Freeview" (Basicly, basic cable that only costs the instalation fee).
Rightly enough, some people (including myself, cause I've been bitten by these things before...) thought that it ment it was goign to be wattered down and not have anime on it.
Well, thier rolling promo has all but kicked that idea in the crotch, they advertised that they will air Anime and not only that, Studio Gibili anime at that.
Of course, we've had this sorta promice before with a certain channel that became a certain piece of crap, but they actualy showed footage, so I'm willing to place my bet this time.
