###Some thoughts from a UK Funimation Now user
July 7, 2016

Notable because Funimation Now launches this September in the U.S.


Funi can blame it on Brexit.



I have to say it … Funxit?

Mark Gosdin


Yeah this appears to be a list of your typical noise complaints. Payment/subscription troubles and the video player.

It seems the beta is just a tad above functional. Quite a shame.

Anime Gateways Promo - New Geek & Sundry Show


While it’s a neat concept for a show, with Funimation as a sponsor / producer, it seems like just mouthpiece for Funimation to get people interested in their stuff, and the bias will be strong with this one.
