I just signed up a few weeks ago for FIOS, and this channel instantly became one of my favorites.  They had something to watch all day long, unlike most of the junk channels i have to sift through.  Very disappointing to see this go.

Fios needs to bring this channel back ASAP. There is no other channel like it on their platform and it is the only reason I signed up with them.

I got up this morning to find the FUNAMATION channel gone!!! Since it is the ONLY channel to show anime 24/7, I never believed it would be removed. With millions of anime fans in the US, there is NO WAY that the demand for this channel was low! There are video stores and whole sections of bookstores devoted to anime. If those businesses recognize the huge demand for anime products, how can Verizon fail to understand the huge fan base and amount of business that the anime sector brings!


The FUNAMATION channel is one of my favorite channels! About 1/3 of all my FIOS TV viewing hours was spent watching FUNAMATION or DVR recordings of FUNAMATION shows that I was unable to watch at the time they came on. I am FURIOUS that FUNAMATION has been removed!!! With FUNAMATION gone, I may have to do something drastic, such as finding another provider that carries the channel or cutting back on my current FIOS TV plan!


Please do the right thing and BRING THE FUNAMATION  CHANNEL BACK!!!

Wow Verizion, you got rid of the only channel that made you any kind of compettion among other television providers. That was really stupid. Now there's nothing special about fios, except a horrible tv guide.

Absolutely ridiculous, I cant believe they cancelled Funimation. Why dont they cancel channels that no one actually watches..like BET, Halmark, tvland, wealth, style, WOW, shopnbc 


I mean come on whoever decided to cancel funimation is a **bleep**. Theres TONS of other channels no one watches and should have been cancelled instead, I mean theres 2 food channels for crying out loud.

When I clicked to Funimation on 262 I'm brought to The Hub and their programs that are available elsewhere or have been played to death. Seriously, this is lame. If Funimation is asking for too much money just say. We CAN handle the truth. Smiley Tongue

Extremely **bleep** at Verizon for cancelling Funimation. THEY SUCK!! At least they could have given an option for subcription service for the channel?I will NEVER use their movies on demand! NEVER. Will now have to spend more time watching anime on Netflix.
