Funimation Entertainment is taking their streaming game to the next level.
The well-revered company took to CES 2016 to announce its new partnership with Sony to bring a brand new ad-free anime HD streaming service called FunimationNow. Subscribers to this new service will be able to stream from Funimation’s massive library—which includes over 400 simulcast and catalogue shows, like fan favorites Dragon Ball Z and Attack on Titan—in full-HD glory. It will even support Ultra 4K.
Those looking forward to this new service can expect to get their hands on the redesigned app on iOS, Android, and Kindle early this February. On top of that, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV users will receive a brand new app that allows users to watch their favorite anime on television from any mobile device with the Airplay and Cast features. Windows 10 will also be getting in on the fun with a brand new universal app. Then, in May, the new experience will come to gaming consoles. Everyone is covered!
Basically, Funimation is attempting to make it incredibly easy for everyone to watch their favorite titles on almost any device—definitely a smart approach.
“Our partnership with Sony, the very best in this space, will help power the launch of FunimationNow, our next generation of innovation for anime fans,” said Chief Operating Officer of Funimation Mike DuBoise. “We’re now uniquely positioned to deliver new and compelling experiences that will be integrated across multiple screens, platforms, and channels, making it easier for fans to discover, share, and experience extraordinary anime.”
There’s no word on pricing yet, but you can visit the FunimationNow site for more information. I, for one, am really looking forward to this new venture by the company.
