Viz Media is launching its own channel on the new anime category for the PlayStation Network video-delivery service.
The anime provider will launch the $1.99-per-episode service with three series, “Bleach,” “Death Note” and “Naruto,” accessible for download to the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Portable. Episodes will be English-dubbed and available in standard definition.
“[These series] are compelling additions to the PlayStation Network and an ideal complement to the dynamic library of content, games and applications available for the PS3 and PSP,” said Ken Sasaki, VP of strategy and business development for Viz.
