Current programming[edit]



Anime programming[edit]

Upon its launch, in the late 1990s and early 21st century, AXN broadcast several anime series, many in their original Japanese audio with English subtitles, both in the mornings and evenings, and held annual anime festivals around Southeast Asia.[4][5] Its anime programming would later be transferred onto Animax Asia in 2004, the preparations for which Sony had been planning since the late 1990s.[5] In the last quarter of 2010, selected anime programs from Animax Asia, dubbed in English language audio, aired both in the mornings and evenings. This feed is available in the Philippines territory only.

† - English audio dub, available in the Philippines only. ‡ - Japanese language audio with English subtitles, available in the Philippines only.

There are two feeds of the Pan Asian feed; one is aimed at viewers in Hong Kong and Thailand only, while the other ones is aimed at the rest of South East Asia. The shows on both the feeds are same, only with different advertising and promo timings. This is also the case with the Philippine feed, which sometimes carries or drops certain shows for reasons of programming rights. AXN Pakistan and AXN India share the same program content and schedules; however, advertising is different on both beams.
