If anyone hasn't seen, there is a new streaming service coming to the UK thanks to ANN and Kaze.

http://www.anime-on-demand.com/

Word is they will be getting some good new titles and hopefully some older stuff too. Prices seem sane at £35/year.

So who are Kaze?

It'll depend on the titles.

Ooo, this is news to me. Mind you I've had my head in the sand for the past few weeks.

Looking at the line-up on crunchyroll though I doubt I'll be needing to look elsewhere, for this season at least.

Kaze are a big european distro of anime and other Japanese stuff. Andrew from Beez now works for them. IIRC they have some links with Viz.

So I take it that this is the beginning of them trying to crack the UK market?

That's me subscribing, for this season anyway. Although it's a bit of a dick move they prevented crunchyroll from streaming Steins;Gate to the UK. Yay for sporadic legal streaming of anime.

Who is to say they actually prevented CR from streaming it? Its up to the rights holders to decide who they offer which regions to.

You're right, I assumed that crunchyroll had been prevented the rights to streaming S;G. I can't possibly state that as a fact.

The point I was trying to make is I don't see the need for another subscription based website for streaming, especially a region blocked one. I think one site should be trying to group everything together as opposed to loads of little sites all fighting for different shows.

Whether anyone agrees with me or not doesn't matter. AoD get my £10, I watch what I want, everyone's happy.

CR is US based, US adverts etc... They keep the UK happy so long as we pay our way.
AoD is UK based with UK adverts. In theory they can offer a better deal for UK people who don't want to pay and are happy to sit through a few ads. Andrew says its not their intention to compete with CR. We shall see. Either way if we get access to more series its no bad thing.

I agree its a shame things are being split up but then the yankies do have so much more than us at this time. And some blame has to land at the feet of the people who insist on selling the rights off in regions. Its the best way to get more money for them.

I gave up on AoD. I paid for a subscription then they went free. And to top it off the website was awful and things like the 'forgot my password' link never worked. You just got an undelivered email bounced back.
