FUNimation Researching Possibilities

FUNimation's website is currently sporting a video of President Gen Fukunaga stating, "FUNimation is always looking for new ways of providing Anime to the fans. We're considering a 24-hour, 7-days a week TV channel focusing on Uncut, English dubbed Anime, available as an additional channel to your current basic satellite or cable package. This channel would include your favorite anime programming including Dragon Ball, Yū Yū Hakusho, Kiddy Grade, Tenchi Muyo GXP, Case Closed, Fruits Basket, Blue Gender, and many other great anime."

The full video and a survey can be seen here.

Currently A.D. Vision, Inc., ADV Films parent company, operates The Anime Network, and Bandai has announced that it will be the exclusive provider of content for Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim Video On Demand in Association with Anime Village."

Earlier this summer Viz also hinted, through its help wanted ads, that it was researching the possibility of launching an anime television stations.
