This news makes me sick to my stomach! Funimation is the only anime channel available. It was definitely a selling point over Comcast. Anime has such a huge fanbase in the USA, I just don't think people know that such a channel exists. Well, I won't be watching TV anymore.
Funimation is the primary reason i chose FiOS over the competition. If you cancel Funimation, it will be a breach of contract IMO . There is no reason to cancel this. Cancel some of the 400 craptastic stations that get less than 5 viewers. LEAVE FUNIMATION ALONE
It would probably a lot cheaper if I cancel FIOS and have no cable at all and just sign up for Netflix. That way I could just watch whatever I want whenever I want instead of having lots of other crappy channels that I NEVER watch.

Please Verizon, don't do this to us! The only Funimation is the only chanel I watch out of the other "cartoon" netoworks. I hate most of the programming Nick 1 and Nick 2, Teen Nick, Nicktoons, Disney Channel 1 and 2, Disney XD, and some of what's on Cartoon Network. Most of my time watching tv is on the Funimation Chanel. I'd rather see Nick 1 and 2, and the Disney networks be taken instead of Funimation.
The main reason I have a DVR is to record Funimation programs that I simply have no time to watch in real-time. Funimation is the ONLY channel (certainly not the multiple NICKTOONS channels currently available...) offering this kind of content and really IF it goes away, I see no reason not to go back to COMCAST...what a shame...
Why am I not surprised. Just another reason for me to drop this sorry service. I honestly can't believe how this service went so bad in just 3 years. Originally offered an expanding program choice and reliable service. I couldn't wait to get it and now I can't wait to dump it. LOL at using low viewership as an excuse. Or you kidding me? So let me get this straight more people are watching MAV TV with their 3 hour programming a day then Funimation channel? How about the Chiller channel? Anyone else watch the GSN and their 8 hour infomercial block? Unfortunately, I'm limited in my alternatives but I have chosen to take the lesser of two craps. I could never imagine a day where TWC would be considered that. I hate giving up my MSG but it ain't worth the hassel anymore. My god what has happened to you Verizon?
