The PlayStation 3 is getting a new anime channel today. Viz Media announced that the app, which is called Neon Alley, will offer 24-hour programming for anime fans directly through their Sony home consoles. A report on Destructoid indicates that Viz will be providing content from its own library, as well as anime from outside distributors.
Shows will be uncut and uncensored, and Viz expects to incorporate HD programming. The anime will feature English-language dubs, which may upset a few fans of Japanese subtitles. If you’re like me, though, it probably won’t bother you too much.
Neon Alley offers monthly subscriptions for $6.99, though you can sign up for a free one-week trial. To clear up any confusion, it should be noted that this is not a streaming service like Crunchyroll. As a channel, Neon Alley offers scheduled programming. If you’re interested, you can check it out right through the PlayStation Network.
