NO!
I have enough things recorded to have to watch. Don't need 100 more episodes of something. Also if it became a channel exclusively WHERE DO I GO FOR FULL SEASONS OF ANIME?

No, I don't think it should

"Binge-viewing" gorging ourselves on entire streaming/disk seasons (like the child's fantasy of "When I'm grown up, I can eat the whole package of Oreos and no one can tell me I can't!") has so psychologically permeated our national subconscious--I watch one episode of a show per week/night, and people look at me like I'm standing on my head --even the TV channels don't know how to be TV channels anymore:

We already have cable channels airing three to four-episode blocks of shows in a row, and now NBC wants to make the entire season of it's '15-'16 shows available online, as they premiere on the free networks. (Since free-TV viewing basically doesn't exist anymore, and only exists as a necessary concession to sponsors.)
There, that way they'll compete with Netflix's Daredevil!

It would be cool but no need for a television channel.

Doesn't have to be CR, but an all-anime channel on TV would be dope IMO.


There already is a Paid FUNimation channel. All these providers have it (though some may be VOD only). And FUNimation and Anime Channel both provide Paid VOD services, though the selection is very limiting (at least just browsing the Optimum app is), with Anime Channel not even providing full seasons as well.

One problem with an anime channel is that almost all anime is serialized, so you have to start from the beginning, and looking at the FUNimation schedule, they have some marathons of 13 ep shows but then it goes straight into episode 120 of Fairy Tail. So, if you wanted to watch Fairy Tail dubbed (and all is dubbed, I think) from the beginning, you would have to still subscribe to FUNimation's streaming service. I guess a live channel of anime is just like live channels of other shows, providing random shows for lazy viewing when you don't feel like picking what you want to watch.

I'd be curious to know the subscription numbers for FUNimation Channel and both FUNi and Anime Channel's VOD service.

maybe before cable tv was dying out then it could have been an amazing channel like toonami however cable tv is dying out everyone just watches everything on the internet, people use services like sling to get tv channels. It was just be a big flop as an investment and probably cause crunchyroll financial troubles in the end so my answer is now.

On Demand means you pick a show and watch it whenever you like. HBO and HBO2 are live channels, while HBO GO and HBO NOW are on demand (along with their actual on demand service).

Not every channel offers on demand for every show. The amount of shows you get with HBO GO when you subscribe to HBO or Showtime Anytime when you subscribe to Showtime are much better than any other channels i've looked at.
