Wow! ImaginAsian sounds really cool! Cool Hopefully, the network will air through DirecTV one of these days. *crosses fingers*

I was wondering something, though. On their website, I clicked on "Get ImaginAsian" to see if they told where to find their network. It brings up a subscription form that you can fill out. Is this something like the Anime Network's "Demand Your Anime" feature or is this something entirely different? I don't want to fill it out until I know exactly what it is.

Thanks in advance for your help. Smile

Yes, very much so.

Does anyone know what cable companies might get this or where to check out the list? I am so getting TiVo (School starts on that day --;).

When I was speaking to Justin Sevakis yesterday, he said that a list of markets / providers would go up very soon. I'll mention it in the news when it happens.

He also said that there would be more providers coming between now & launch.

The Anime Network also has broadcasting rights for Gravitation. How can ImaginAsian air it too?

There are "rights" and there are "exclusive rights."

There can be other limitations, such as IATV not being allowed to air it until after TAN (for example TAN has exclusive rights for a certain period of time).

Personally I suspect / assume there was no exclusivity in either contract, but without speaking to them about it or seing the contracts, that's pure speculation.

And its really not worth asking about...

I know. I was just curious, and thought maybe someone in the forum who knew more about broadcasting rights could answer it for me. But since you answered it, thanks.
