Anime Network said it scored carriage deals for its 24-hour network with One Link and Liberty Cablevision, the two largest cable operators in Puerto Rico.

The agreements, which will allow the network to reach two-thirds of the island, boost Anime Network’s subscriber count by 178,000 subscribers.

Most of Anime’s distribution agreements are for its video-on-demand channels. In addition to the operators in Puerto Rico, distributors carrying the 24-hour channel include Longview in Missouri; FISION in Houston, Texas; Home Town Cable in Florida; and Community Antenna in Wisconsin.
