Funimation Unveils Mobile Video-on-Demand Offerings

posted on by Mikhail Koulikov
Galaxy Railways, Moon Phase available to AT&T users; more series to come

FUNimation Entertainment has partnered with Red Planet Media to begin distributing its shows via digital download to video-capable cellular phones. Episodes of Funimation's Moon Phase and Galaxy Railways are currently available for purchase via Red Planet's Jump In Mobile service. The episodes are available at 99 cents each, but limited to customers of AT&T Wireless. This will be the first step in an ongoing process, and the company plans to offer entire full seasons of its anime series via the service, while expanding it to other wireless providers as well.

Funimation has been a leader in anime digital distribution via Apple's iTunes, Microsoft's Zune and XBox Live, as well as its own website. Since late in 2006, ADV Films has been offeringboth clips from many of its anime to Sprint customers via Zoovision.
