Amazon adds anime fan favorite FunimationNow to its line-up of Prime Video Channels, becoming the first Sony Pictures Television service to launch on Prime Video in the UK.
For an add on subscription of £4.99 per month with a 7-day free trial, Prime members who subscribe to FunimationNow will have access to hundreds of new and classic anime shows and movies ad-free, with English subtitles and dubbing.
At launch FunimationNow will bring Prime members popular anime shows such as My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, Black Clover, Overlord, and Assassination Classroom.
Prime members can also look forward to brand new anime releases this autumn, including That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, SSSS.Gridman, and the final season of Fairy Tail, all with English subtitles and dubbing available.
“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,” said Gen Fukunaga, President and CEO at Funimation. “This will further expand our global footprint and enables us to bring the best in anime to many more fans in the UK.”
FunimationNow joins the line-up of over 70 channels available on Prime Video Channels in the UK including live and on demand entertainment and sport, available as individual subscriptions, with no need to sign up to a bundle or enter a lengthy contract.
FunimationNow will be available for the first time in the UK with an add on subscription of just £4.99 per month with a 7-day free trial via the existing Prime Video app to watch in the UK anytime, anywhere on smart TVs, iOS and Android mobile devices, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Fire tablets and games consoles and through the web at www.amazon.co.uk/channels. Prime members in the UK will be able to access on demand content with the convenience of a single account, login and user experience through Prime Video so there’s no need to jump from app to app.
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 couple of weeks later.
