  • Starz Media, in conjunction with Microsoft, will be bringing many of their anime series to Xbox Llive Marketplace. With titles like Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex (Gig 1 & 2), Noein, Astro Boy and Appleseed, among others, they have a nice library of titles to download and watch. In fact, Xbox Live Marketplace seems to have quite a bit of anime available.
  • The Sci Fi Channel may resurrect their talked about series, Caprica, from development hell to help buffer themselves from the loss of Galactica. Also, trying to milk Galactica for as much advertising dollars as possible is, of course, the reason they are thinking of splitting the last season into two parts, hacking off fans everywhere.
  • NBC has announced a new service to all fans to download their favorite shows up to one week after broadcast. Called NBC Direct, the service will launch in October, and will eventually allow fans to pre-select shows to automatically download to their PCs. This sounds similar to the BBC’s program, and is a welcome step in using the internet to reach fans.
  • It seems that Cavemen executive producer Will Speck isn’t discouraged by the savaging his show has received from critics. And he shouldn’t be. He should be concerned by the number of people who won’t watch the show. Seriously, is anyone even thinking of watching this?
