Illusion: On Demand Sci-Fi Channel

Well, other than the editorial roundtable thing, the initial programming doesn't grab me--I mean, Troma? What crap!-- but it's a start:

Illusion On-Demand, the first cable VOD channel dedicated to science fiction & fantasy, is set to launch this October. Offering a wide variety of programming which includes live-action premieres, award-winning films, anime and news, Illusion wants to define the new face of Sci-Fi culture.

Launching with a library of over 300 programming hours, Illusion is confident that Sci-Fi lovers will find a new top destination on their VOD lineup.

Included in Illusion's initial lineup fans will find the acclaimed anime series "Now and Then, Here and There", VOD premieres of several BBC series including "Strange", a monthly selection of camp in the form of the "Troma Creature Feature" and the original roundtable discussion series "Analog: The Science of Fiction" moderated by editors of the renowned Analog: Science Fiction and Fact magazine. Also included in the initial lineup will be award-winning features, shorts, mini-series and the first shows on television dedicated comic book news and interviews.
