BANDAI Channel to start Streaming in US, Europe and Asia.

All I can say is awesome. I guess they weren't lying about simulcasting Gundam Unicorn, but I was hoping for a Broadcast Simulcast; baby steps. According to Nikkei Business Publications' ITpro; Bandai channel recently switched from using WMV to Flash, which should ease transition as Flash is a better streaming format. I'm curious if this will have any effect on the Semi-Autonomous US distributor Bandai Entertainments forays into the Streaming world. The biggest difference I suppose is the Bandai Entertainment's YouTube channel currently only broadcasts shows that already have US DVD distribution rights.

Now all we need is Animax...
