A new anime streaming service titled HIDIVE also launched on Tuesday. It has not claimed affiliation with Anime Network. HIDIVE will stream some of the same titles that are currently streaming on ANO, including the ongoing simulcast Frame Arms Girl. The anime was previously exclusive to ANO but is now listed as a HIDIVE exclusive.
The Anime Network was formerly a subsidiary of AD Vision, and continued to operate independently after AD Vision shut down in 2009. The company offered a 24/7 linear television service from 2004 to 2008.
