The FUNimation Channel is a 24-hour anime network that showcases some of FUNimation's properties. OlympuSAT[1] was chosen as the exclusive distributor of the network. The FUNimation channel is North America's second 24-hour dubbed anime cable outlet, the first being ADV Films' The Anime Network.

Brief history

Shortly before the Navarre acquisition, FUNimation conducted a survey on its website asking the fans what they thought about a 24-hour anime cable network. Several months passed and Navarre had completed its acquisition of FUNimation before the company announced The Funimation Channel.

Carriage

This channel is currently available on the C-Band 4Dtv System on Galaxy 23, VCN 802. Viewers with digital sets in the New York area may also pick up the channel from WRNN-TV on Channel 48-3.

Syndicated blocks

On March 23, 2006, FUNimation announced that in addition to the Funimation Channel, it will be launching a 4-hour syndicated anime block. On April 8, 2006, the block was added to CoLours TV. The shows are in their dubbed form. As of October 8, 2007, the weeknight block's hours were cut from 4 hours to 2 hours, same thing for the weekend block as of October 13, 2007.
