I know you probably mean well, but suicide is no joke, dude.

Roll on Final Chapters!... and a possible blu ray release yaaaayyyy (not holding my breath there though).
Kai is an older thing, and as much star power as Dragon Ball has, I think Kai is probably going to end up the cheapest Dragon Ball series that could be picked up, and I think it'll be one of the cheaper anime Wow will be looking at; given some of the other series she's looking at are much newer(Or at last, have much more buzz behind them at the moment), I don't think Kai will be all that expensive.
As for TFC - Depends what the ratings are like, how the merch sells, and possibly on how much we push for only going ahead with TFC if/when there's a Canadian dub, which we will probably have to jump on if/when we approach the end of the run of Kai 1.0. I do hope this ends up happening, and I think if the channel is a success, it very well may... We just have to hope the channel does well.
Blu-Ray - Don't count on it. If it's Toei, I think it's possible, but absolutely do not count on this. It's actually worth assuming this won't happen.

For our sake, I certainly hope it's the latter as we're running out of options to help this dub finally see the light of day.
I don't know if cost has anything to do with it, although I wouldn't say so. Anime is expensive to licence but Marni has expressed interest in airing it, and Ocean Kai should be a bit cheaper because they won't have to factor in the expenses of licensing the Japanese score (which is often a pretty penny alone). The latter is a good guess.
Indeed. As is often the case with the Ocean dubs of Dragon Ball, Ocean's Kai is probably cheaper to license than Funi's version, and as I was saying above, given Kai's buzz will have reduced down so much in the past few years, I'm sure it'll be very reasonably priced, despite being Dragon Ball.
Honestly, I really don't see any reason for this not to go ahead. I think we just have to wait on announcements of when the channel will debut.
The point of Dragon Ball is to enjoy it. Never lose sight of that.
