The anime production company TMS Entertainment launched two channels — TMS Anime for anime fans and TMS Kids! for children — for streaming in the United States in October. The company Future Today Inc. developed the two channels, which are both free, ad-supported, and available on Apple TV, Fire TV, and Roku devices.
The TMS Anime channel features the following titles:
- Actually, I Am…
- God Mars
- The Pilot's Love Song
- Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas
- Z/X Ignition
All of the above series are available in their entirety. All series are in Japanese with English subtitles except Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas, which is in Japanese without subtitles. Bananya episodes have a watermark at the bottom of every episode that reads "TMS SAMPLE."
The TMS Kids! channel features the following titles:
All of the TMS Kids! series are English-dubbed except Bananya (which is the same version as the stream on TMS Anime). Bananya, Galaxy High School, and Sherlock Hound are available in their entirety. Monster Rancher has the first 48 of 73 episodes available while Sonic X has the first 77 of 78 episodes available.
TMS plans to stream more titles such as Lupin III.
