Film4 to Broadcast Tekkonkinkreet and From Up on Poppy Hill This Thursday


If you fancy watching some anime on TV this week then why not tune into Film4; as the UK based freeview channel will be showing two anime films on the same day.

Starting at 1:25am on Thursday 31st July 2014 Film4 (Sky Channel 315, Freeview 15 and Freesat 300) will be showing Tekkonkinkreet, then at 11am the channel will be showing Studio Ghibli’s From Up on Poppy Hill; both of which are popular films among anime fans.

What’s more important is that both films will be broadcast in High Definition so if you have a HDTV and a compatible HD box (such as Sky HD, Freesat HD or Freeview HD) then you’ll be able to watch these films in High Definition thus receiving a better viewing experience.

If you end up missing the films, or don’t have a compatible recording device (such as Sky+ or a PVR) then both Tekkonkinkreet and From Up on Poppy Hill are currently available on DVD and Blu-ray within the UK.
