    ... $50 for a year premium service. $50/12 = $4.17.

    Its $7/month for an anime membership, paid monthly, $5/month on a regular annual $60 anime membership.

    The monthly premium, for people who watch both anime and dramas is $12/month, but I'd need three classes a term to be up among those high rollers.

      from Android or PS3 devices or is it computer only?

      •  Well, you can access it for free from Android ... (0+ / 0-)

        ... Apple, Windows Phone, Roku, etc., its just with ads. The anime membership turns off the ads for the anime, the drama membership turns off the ads for the drama, and the premium membership turns off the ads for both.

        They just rolled out the PS3 channel, and haven't rolled out ad-supported viewing yet, so it would be restricted to anime only for anime members and drama only for drama members.

        BTW, I guess the transport connection here would be the WiFi support on Amtrak NEC, some Amtrak-California services, and the Megabus. One reason that fewer young people want to drive everywhere than their elders did at their age is the desire to use their phones for connected social media, and sitting down on a bus or train on a commute watching anime instead of watching the stop and start traffic in front of you is a more pleasant way to get to work, for an anime fan.

        "Back in the day", when I was a some days a week rail commuter in Australia, that was a portable DVD player, except without the social media ... but a WiFi or 4G connected smartphone or a tablet is even more convenient, since you don't have to have the content loaded when you leave in the morning. And you can twitter a bit, watch an anime, check out Facebook and before you know it, you're at your destination.

        •  I would love to be able to do that unfortunately (0+ / 0-)

          public transportation here in Central Illinois is practically nonexistent.  There are plenty of railroad tracks though.

          •  What part of Central Illinois? (0+ / 0-)

            We sure don't have WiFi on the bus (singular) route from here through Kent, but then its one of the more rural counties in this part of the state. If it wasn't for the county and Kent State merging their bus services, I doubt we would have that route.
