So I guess that is the end of Anime on Demand then. As long as Viz Media learned a lesson with AoD, hopefully this will be a major improvement. Any thoughts on this?

Pretty cool. I went overseas in a certain country in asia one time, and while staying at the hotel, they had animax. Never knew what is was until that day. Now, I always wondered why would they have it considering that english is hardly spoken in that country.

Guess we'll see what titles they have and how good the service is. The UK streaming for anime is all a bit disjointed at the minute with multiple companies doing their own thing. Hopefully we can get them all pooling what they have together at some point. Anime on Demand was pretty awful i remember when it came out i looked and they barely had any content and were charging loads for it.
