Animax Eastern Europe (Japanese: アニマックス中央ヨーロッパ Animakkusu chūō yōroppa, Hungarian: Animax Közép-Európa) was a Japanese anime television network in Eastern Europe, including Hungary, Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland. It replaced the A+ network in these countries except Poland on April 11, 2007. This was Animax's first major expansion to Europe.[1][2][3] The channel broadcast its programmes either dubbed in the local language of each country, or in Japanese audio with local subtitles.

The channel was closed on 31 March 2014, and was replaced by the Chellomedia channel C8. C8 started broadcasting in Hungary on 1 April 2014, and in Romania on 5 May 2014.


Animax Eastern Europe replaced Anime+ in Hungary, Romania, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

In 2008, it was announced that the channel was to be launched Poland and to distribute in the country by HBO Poland (Co-owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment) and run by Animax Eastern Europe.[4]
