Trust me, Verizon has no worries about dropping this channel.  Also, it's content is heavily pirated, and so, again, its niche viewership isn't even there.


Greg, based on your posts, I'm having a hard time telling whether you are a hater or just a really pessimistic fan.  I really don't mean to gang up on you with Yenco, but I haven't really considered the piracy theory either.  I do feel the need to respond to this because I also heard it a few years ago when Adultswim removed anime from their weekday block.  I suppose there is a lot of pirated content available for anime.  But there is a lot of pirated content available for anything currently playing in theatres.  Should we close down all the movie theatres?  Should we remove HBO because their stuff is also pirated?  Should we close down museums because all the classic works of art are available in cheap reproductions?  I don't understand why this argument only applies to anime.

 

Many of us recognize if we don't support anime legally then the producers won't make money.  If that happens, then the writers, artists, animators, voice actors, etc. won't get paid.  If that happens, then there won't be any more anime.  Times are tough for everyone, and the industry has shrunk a bit, though the same can be said for a lot of industries.  There still is an anime industry and a channel dedicated to it for those that can't  afford to own the dvds of every show they watch but still want to support it for the price of a cable subscription and sitting through a few commercials.

Please give me back funimation!!! You have no idea how happy I was to see a tv station that showed anime just anime. I found a lot of good shows in that station and would watch it whenever I could. When I saw that it was gone I was so upset!! Please put it back a lot of people love it and there really isn't any on their cable station that has it! Or is there can someone please tell me if there is? Ok so yeah... Put it back up!

In a way I'm glad FiOS cancelled Funimation. Since that forced me to get the monthly funimation streaming plan. For only $8 a month I have access to all their shows even in HD.  I found alot of shows that I probably never would have seen if I had continued wacthing the TV channel. I use my Roku to access their streaming app.

I still miss my Funi.  Just the other day I caught myself doing a 262 and then trying to figure out what channel I landed on.

Funimation considers FIOS as one of their carriers as it is available in the ON-Demand section of FIOS.

The channel was dropped over 2 years ago and you're just noticing now?
