Funimation finally debuted its new Funimation Now app just like we reported it would back in January. The app was released for Android, iOS, and Windows 10 at the same time. The Windows 10 version is a Universal app, meaning that users of both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices will be able to enjoy their favorite anime shows.
Watch unlimited anime with Funimation Now
Funimation Now contains a huge library of anime shows and movies, including some of the most popular franchises, like “Dragon Ball Z,” “Attack on Titan,” “Fairy Tail,” “Cowboy Bebop,” “Assassination Classroom,” and more. Users will also be able to watch both subbed and dubbed versions of an anime.
“The introduction of the FunimationNow all-new mobile app is our way of giving our loyal fans what they have always wanted and deserve — a high-quality, immersive, and seamless experience,” said Mike DuBoise, Chief Operating Officer of Funimation.
There are currently three subscription options for Funimation Now: Basic (free, but with video ads and a limited library), Subpass ($4.99/month) and All-Access ($7.99/month, with all subtitled anime including simulcasts, all English-dubbed anime, unlimited device streaming, and more). So, you can choose the right package for you based on your needs.
Funimation also announced that the console version of the app will arrive in May. The app will of course be available on Xbox One but also Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. As for the Xbox One version, we still don’t know if there will be any cross-platform compatibility options.
Funimation is one of the biggest anime distribution companies in the US, with millions of Blue-Ray and DVD sales every year. The introduction of a new streaming service and a Universal Windows 10 app will bring even more profit to the company.
