“Anime Network is thrilled to include Charter Communications in our ever-growing list of SVOD affiliates,” said Kevin McFeeley, the company’s Vice President, Affiliate Sales & New Media, in making today’s announcement. “We are now available in over 35 million VOD-enabled households, and the popularity of our independent, niche content has translated into a sustainable on-demand business.”

Cathy Fogler, Vice President and General Manager of Video for Charter said: “We’re pleased to offer Anime Network to our customers. Charter strives to provide value by offering a wide variety of programming and SVOD is an excellent way for us to provide niche content like Anime Network.”
