What I'm wondering is if they will do the same for their On-Demand service as well.

This is great, now I'll have a reason to actually watch that channel if I ever get Comcast Anime smile. But will the subs be a straight off the DVD version, or will they make totally new ones? I'd say it's probably the first option, as it would save some money, but I don't like the font they use for a lot of their older titles before they started using the better, smaller size they have now.

About damn time. Now if they will just start showing subs of shows they have the rights to but haven't released on DVD, this will be great.

I have been emailing TAN constantly for the past year about offering a subtitled option to their On Demand customers. I'm assuming this venture is for subscibers of the new linear channel only -_-*

next question: Audio! will they(TAN) stream 5.1 Dolby Digital or the usual 2.0?

Highly unlikely.

Not unless you want to pay a monthly fee for it as a pay-only channel like HBO. They won't devote the bandwidth.

With HDTV, 5.1 Channel sound is the standard for video streams that have it. HDTV is suppose to be standard after 2006.

www.howstuffworks.com and look up hdtv

Here in the US, TV signals are squeezed into the same 6MHz bandwidth that analog TV uses. HDTV here in the US can send one video stream with 5.1 audio on that 6MHz, or if it is something less important, like news, they can multicast 4 seperate video streams and/or audio streams.

I am overjoyed that New Fist of the North Star's artistic integrity won't be compromised.

It's a logical move for several reasons. Running the subbed version allows for running the dubbed version at a later time as a separate program, doubling the programming hours that an anime series can fill. It also will cater to the otaku crowd that condemns dubbed anime, now matter how well done.

And it will offer an opportunity to test the belief that subbed anime is death on TV viewership. If subbed anime can succeed anywhere on TV, it should do so on a specialty channel devoted to anime. If it failed on TAN, though, that would prove the conventional TV wisdom that subbed anime repels viewers.

If the subs succeeded on TAN, that could open up showings of some older fan-favorite series that were only subbed. Stuff like Urusei Yatsura, for instance. (^_*)

The ANN staff is likely working on making it presentable before releasing it.
