FunimationNow Launches on Amazon Fire TV
If you are a fan of anime then you probably know about FunimationNow already. This service brings a ton of anime entertainment to subscribers across many platforms including Android, iPhone, Windows 10 devices and Amazon Kindle Fire. Later this year FunimationNow will launch on Xbox 360, Roku and Playstation 3, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Right now though, the service has just launched on the Amazon Fire TV with several tiers available for subscribers.
FunimationNow gives viewers access to hits such as “My Hero Academia” and “Dimension W”, “Attack on Titan” and “Fairy Fail” to name a few. Many of the hits on the FunimationNow service are available in both dubbed and subbed formats that compliment nearly every viewer’s taste.
“We are thrilled to partner with Amazon to enable more anime fans to experience our content on their TVs,” said Mike DuBoise, Chief Operating Officer of Funimation. “This is another milestone in our promise to deliver to anime fans a high-quality, immersive, and seamless streaming experience regardless of platform or device. Stay tuned- there is a lot more to come this year.”
What are the fees to access FunimationNow? Interestingly there is a free option and a few that charge.
The free account gives limited access to the anime library but has video ads.
Subpass is $4.99 per month, includes subtitled anime (including simulcasts), unlimited device streaming and ad-free viewing in HD.
All-Access pass is $7.99 per month but offers all of the stuff from the Subpass but adds all of the FunimationNow English dubbed anmie, Funimation Broadcast Dubs and exclusive video extras.
The All-Access pass is the way to go if you are a fan of anime but it is also the most expensive.
In September 2016 the FunimationNow website will be overhauled and relaunched. After this happens the additional such as Playstation 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and One and Roku will be released.
