Did I hear things right? Dubbed Lagrange and Zetman., or is that a massive typo?

I'd prefer on demand really. I hope there is a way to at least record shows.

Regardless, if premieres the dub for Tiger and Bunny, Im hyped! Very Happy

So this was their big annoucement for the summer?
I thought it would be more digital-only manga to piss of even more fans...
Guess I can rest in peace now...

Hmm, this is cool and I will have to check it out but I am really turned off by it not being an on demand service.

So in other words this is exactly like Funimation Channel but with Viz shows instead of funimation shows. Seriously I'd really wish somehow they didn't have you pay to watch the anime channels, but you have to make sacrficices sometimes. Really wished they'd become free channels like Cartoonnetwork or MTV.
Who knows if it looks good enough I might cancel my Funimation Channel subsription and go to Neon Alley.

Hm, to me this effectively kills any chance that Inuyasha and Tiger & Bunny end up on Toonami.

Well, it's almost certainly for XBox. Microsoft's the only player actively pushing content like this.

I wanna know this as well.

I'm also wondering if they're going to try to get the same actors from NYAV to return for the Berserk film dubs.

Question: will their VizAnime website also be available in Canada or will it just be Neon Alloy?

However, there's portability with Nintendo's Nintendo 3DS, it and the Nintendo Wii (as well as the incoming Wii U, for that matter) already having access to Netflix's streaming service.

Not to mention, overall, Viz Media has a closer relationship with Nintendo by far than it does with Microsoft or Sony.

Can the Wii stream HD content?
Personally I'd rather see it on PS3, but it'll most likely be on Xbox.

They're not really pushing it....they just have the largest market share in the US (but not overseas by far).

HOWEVER, this statement
Quote:
"Neon Alley is a subscription-based service that will cost US$6.99 per month. According to Viz's press release, it will have "limited commercial advertising." "
Leads me to believe it's PS3. Of course they may have phrased it that way to keep it hidden but XBOX already has quite a few options for anime so PS3 makes more sense to me. Also, in general PS3 has more users interesting in anime...so it would be smarter to put it on there IMO. Though, both would be the best option. I excluded Wii because the article said HD. Though, it could be for Wii U for all we know since this doesnt debut until Fall which is around the time the Wii U is supposed to be out. The main reason I hope it's not XBOX tho, is because that price would be misleading. Knowing Microsoft, the actual fee will be 6.99 per month PLUS would require a gold subscription. Ps3 please >.<

Personally for me I don't see it being worth it. I mean you are paying almost as much a month as one would for something like say Crunchyroll but you are getting WAY less content and it's still gonna have ads. It's cool that they are gonna premier Tiger and Bunny dubbed there but being that is the only thing I care about I will wait for the DVDs.

Well this is a gyp.

You're getting a fourth of the content that CR or FUNi has for almost the same price. And it's not even a watch when you like type thing, it looks like. It seems they'll be cycling content, so unless you keep up there's definitely no point.

Waste of money. If FUNi were to get an Xbox app or Roku app, I might consider getting their subscription, but for now I'm only with CR.

Edit:
Wow, they're site is littered with editing fail too:
"Beserk: The Gold Age Arc I - The Egg of the King"
"Dubbed Premiers" "exclusive premiers"

C'mon.
