Just like I said in the title. There needs to be an obvious and easy to find list of upcoming titles, with brief descriptions and a picture. I would put it under the Shows tab, probably next to the release calendar. Make it clear as day so anyone, even new members to the site can find it quickly.

Now I get it, you likely don't know what shows you're gonna get the licenses for until close to release. A simple way to deal with it is to, on that page, include a "subject to change" and "More may be added, check back often" notification.

This is important for premium members, we want to know what we're paying for in the way of new content. You can get people excited by pointing out the big shows you'll be hosting too.

You mean something like the /lineup page?

This isn't something I was aware of, but it's close. Why don't they have anything new posted yet? The new series will start coming out within another week or two. They must know at least some, and I'd like what they do know their getting to be posted on here. Obviously series that are on-going and not over, we know are going to continue, so that section isn't really needed...

It will keep changing as they get contracts inked. You can look at this thread to see examples of how things have gone in the past:

New simulcasts are routinely announced within a week before the first episode is broadcast in Japan. Most shows only start airing the second week of April, so don't be worried.
