Does anyone know if YTV is available on comcast regular Question
It would stink(not the word I want) if it wasn't because it would take alot of work to switch to satellite or a digi-cable comp. just for 1 channel

Uhh... it's a Canadian channel, not available in the United States as far as I know unless you can somehow find a way to subscribe to Bell ExpressVu in Illinois.

Yay! I'm so happy! The Teletoon thing is surprising though. Never thought Teletoon would air that.

I'm hoping it convinces Teletoon to pick up more anime later, but since you could claim that the Animatrix isn't "anime" in the truest sense, probably not.

It would be interesting if they went after Naruto. The potential of that franchise may be enough to entice even Teletoon, especially considering it'll almost definitely be dubbed in Canada as well.

Teletoon? After Naruto? I don't think it's going to happen.

I'm thinking Teletoon's far more likely to decide Canadian viewers want to see back-to-back, Telefilm Canada-subsidized episodes of Zeroman every evening (and then repeated a couple of times overnight) than they are going to follow Cartoon Network's lead and put on more anime.

Not that I'd care one way or the other about them getting Naruto, since I don't give a flying... umm... squirrel about Naruto.

Neither do I really. Not even sure why I'm even trying to make the effort of keeping up with the show, but it would be a great foot in the door much like Inuyasha was for YTV.

But who am I kidding? The show is probably going to Bionix in September. We should just be thankful that Teletoon is playing The Venture Brothers next month.

Canada is being more libral when it comes to cenoring stuff on TV, so they might show more anime on TV.
