FUNimation Channel to Launch on FiOS TV

Verizon Communications’ Verizon FiOS TV service will get its taste of anime starting Tuesday.

The regional Bell operating company reached a carriage deal with Navarre’s FUNimation Entertainment subsidiary to launch FUNimation Channel, a 24-hour digital network featuring programming from top anime brands in the United States.

FUNimation Channel will be added to FiOS TV’s Premier package, the two parties said.

Verizon FiOS TV is now available in parts of north Texas, Florida, California, Virginia, Massachusetts, Maryland and New York, and it will expand to other markets later this year.
