Well, this isn't a nice way to start the New Year! The AZN channel, which used to be the old International Channel, carried quite a lot of anime and also some really great Asian drama series. "The Emperor of the Sea", was one of my favorites. I've included the link to animenewsnetwork below.
I can't think of another channel where you can get Asian explosure, except the actual Japanese channel or the Chinese channel. Thats a bit expensive for me, and I think its only availible on Direct TV.
