TBS Action/Animé Broadband Channel in the Works

A joint venture between TBS’ Cartoon Network and VIZ Media, a publisher and licensor of Manga and Anime entertainment, will produce a broadband network called Toonami Jetstream. The channel draws its name from Cartoon Network’s Toonami programming block. It will present five series, including some anime programming not currently available in the U.S.

It’ll launch July 17. Ad units include banner and in-stream placements, and Turner will sell the inventory.
