Anime streaming service FunimationNow has joined the Amazon Prime Video Channels line-up, giving UK-based Prime members access to hundreds of subbed and dubbed Funimation-licensed anime for a subscription of £4.99 per month.
The first Sony Pictures Television-owned service to launch on Prime Video in the UK, the FunimationNow channel’s launch titles include popular shows such as My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, Black Clover, Yuri On Ice!!!, Overlord and Assassination Classroom. This autumn will also see the addition of new series including That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, SSSS Gridman and the final season of Fairy Tail, Funimation has announced.
The company added that customers who subscribe to FunimationNow can also look forward to soon getting access to new shows with English subtitles the day after they air in Japan, with English-dubbed versions available a few weeks later.
“It’s great that we can now offer UK Prime members access to popular anime shows with the addition of Sony’s FunimationNow on Prime Video Channels,” said Alex Green, European MD of Channels and Sport at Amazon Prime Video. “FunimationNow adds an incredible line up of anime to the wide selection of entertainment we offer customers on Prime Video in the UK.”
“We are pleased to be working with Amazon to offer FunimationNow as part of their Prime Video Channels line-up,” added Funimation President and CEO Gen Fukunaga. “This will further expand our global footprint and enables us to bring the best in anime to many more fans in the UK.”
