Today, Funimation and Crunchyroll announced a new partnership that will make watching anime better than ever. With this partnership, FunimationNow will continue to be your number one source for English-dubbed anime, and Crunchyroll will continue to bring fans the very best in subs. This partnership allows Funimation to focus on giving you a broader selection of shows dubbed in English, faster than ever before. Through our partnership, we’ll be able to bring to market the best new anime from the best studios in Japan all at "near-to-Japan" broadcast times. Together, it’s our goal to bring more anime to fans, and more fans to anime—so everybody wins! To learn more about our partnership with Crunchyroll, please visit our blog and check out our FAQ.
We made it easy to take your love of anime everywhere you go with the all-new FunimationNow Mobile App. Available on iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle, and Windows 10, the new and improved app allows you to watch Funimation's entire library of ad-free anime whenever and wherever you want.
Funimation made anime more easily accessible to fans in the UK and Ireland when they launched FunimationNow beta sites in those territories earlier this year. These sites feature an entirely new video platform that will allow us to enhance the quality of the video streaming on the all-new global site coming in October.
Our team has been hard at work preparing for the upcoming launch of a reimagined website experience that will revolutionize the way you discover, watch, share, and connect with anime. By forming exciting new partnerships, like the one we've announced with Crunchyroll, we'll be able to give fans a broader selection of anime dubbed in English faster than ever. And by leveraging the latest technology, our new site will be able to deliver that content on a mobile-responsive site with a streamlined user interface and a network of apps to support convenient on-the-go viewing.
Along with updating our site and service, we're also switching over to an entirely new video platform that will allow us to enhance the quality of all of our videos. Right now, we're taking every episode, OVA, and movie and placing them into that new platform as well as making huge changes to the way we treat our video content. When the new site launches, we want to make sure that the anime you know and love looks better and brighter than ever so you'll be able to experience every show the way it was meant to be seen.
We're getting closer and closer to the launch of the new FunimationNow. Currently, we're preparing the rest of our console apps for launch with the new service. Very soon you'll be able to stream ad-free, HD anime on all-new apps for PS3, PS4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, and Roku! Like the new and improved apps that came before them, they'll feature a streamlined user interface and won't cost you a dime to download. Here are a few more features to look forward to:
Now that our writers and designers have done their part building, coding, writing, and curating content, our QA experts are hard at work finding any bugs hiding in the code of the new site and service. Everyone here at Funimation is getting excited for the new site and we hope you are too. It's been quite a project, and we just want to thank you again for all your patience as we put the finishing touches on the all-new Funimation.com.
Get a sneak peek at the new site and service and see how Funimation is taking ordinary to extraordinary.
As we move all of our shows, movies, and OVAs over to the new video platform, we're taking the time to enhance the video quality so you can watch anime the way it was meant to be seen—with crisp, clear lines, vivid colors, and breathtaking animation. See the difference for yourself in this side-by-side comparison video!
Like the new mobile apps released earlier this year, the new Funimation site will be able to track the progress of your episode as well as sync your queue across devices. That way you can start a show on our site, then pick it back up later from any of our apps without losing your place!
The all-new Funimation.com will bring you more ways to find, discover, and enjoy anime on any device. These changes will include FunimationNow Apps for new devices, performance updates to the current FunimationNow Apps, and a variety of upgraded site functionalities like enhanced search and mobile site optimization. To learn more about how we're turning an ordinary streaming experience into an extraordinary one, click and read our Extraordinary User Experience blog post.
Free anime anytime, anywhere! With the launch of the new site the FunimationNow App will become accessible to users with free accounts. The apps will also feature more ad-supported content than ever and an upgraded viewing experience. To learn more, visit the Funimation blog!
