Cementing its stronghold as the leading video-on-demand (VOD) offering in North America, Anime Network has signed a carriage agreement with Charter Communications. Beginning January 3, Charter Communications launched Anime Network as a subscription-based video-on-demand (SVOD) service. "Anime Network is thrilled to include Charter Communications in our ever-growing list of SVOD affiliates,” said Kevin McFeeley, the company’s Vice President, Affiliate Sales & New Media, in making today’s announcement. "We are now available in over 35 million VOD-enabled households, and the popularity of our independent, niche content has translated into a sustainable on-demand business." Cathy Fogler, Vice President and General Manager of Video for Charter said: “We’re pleased to offer Anime Network to our customers. Charter strives to provide value by offering a wide variety of programming and SVOD is an excellent way for us to provide niche content like Anime Network.” Anime Network has over 95% penetration into all VOD-enabled households in North America.
