Insight Launching Anime in Columbus


Insight Communications Co. Inc. will launch Anime Network as a full-time network to its digital subscribers in Columbus, Ohio, July 27, the network said Monday.

The network has been available as a video-on-demand offering since late 2002, but the Insight rollout is 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

The MSO will continue rolling out Anime throughout its systems in Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky during the remainder of the year, Anime said.

“We are thrilled to be bringing the finest anime programming to an ever-growing audience that is technologically savvy and hungry for additional content in this genre," Anime president Kevin Corcoran said in a prepared statement.

Insight has about 1.4 million customers in Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.
