    I just thought. What happens if FUNimation Channel completely dies out? Like no company ever carries the channel anymore? Because TBH I could see it happening in the near future. Like would they sell the rights to the shows to other networks? The network most likely being [adult swim] for Toonami? I don't know I just see something of the sort happening soon, because at this rate they're most likely just loosing money from the channel, and not really making any. I just feel like in the end it would be a waste of time for them to keep it on.

    Just my two cents.

    The only REAL MSO (multi-system operator) on this list is AT&T U-verse they have 4 million subscribers. The rest of these providers are small, small, small MSOs that have limited coverage and do not have any where near the number of subscribers AT&T does.

    If AT&T drops it. Then the Funimation Channel is done.

    It is in my opinion the channel has a distribution problem. It has been around for 7 years and in all that time they could not convince any of the big big big MSOs to carry the linear channel? Only FiOS and AT&T? There is something seriously wrong here. Like lack of demand.

    If Funimation instantly wants Comcast, Time Warner, Cox, DirecTV and Dish Network to carry their channel, the only way this is going to happen is if they buy out an existing cable channel and move their programming there. G4 would be a good candidate- buy them out move the anime programming to that channel and bam! You have instant coverage across the country.

    Man, i really wish that my cable service had this channel. I have xfinity from comcast and there are absolutely NO anime channels. I mean, sure this channel is available on demand, but that's really about it. I did get this channel back when verizon FiOS was my cable service, though. My favorite show on there was Galaxy Railways. I wonder what's on that channel now...

    That's completely unrealistic. Do you really think an anime channel has the capital to buy out another channel? I mean what kind of channel would they purchase anyway, and who would agree to it?

    Also at the FUNimation panel at Anime Expo they had a representative from FUNimation Channel speaking. She said they're still talking to EVERYONE, and that if you don't hear any announcement in the near future it's because they can't seal the deal yet. Also she said there will be announcements in the fall, and hinted at a big carrier.
