FUNimation Entertainment Announces New Options and Enhancements for Subscription Streaming Service
Jan 14th 2015
New SubPass Now Available!
Flower Mound, TX (January 13, 2015) – FUNimation Entertainment is committed to providing the best services, products, and experiences for our fans, which starts with ongoing updates and enhancements to our subscription streaming service. To that end, we have several exciting announcements for all of our fans:
For fans of subtitled anime, FUNimation has just launched the subscription ‘SubPass’, which gives fans unlimited access to subtitled anime. Episodes can be streamed in HD, commercial-free, right after Japanese broadcast, and across multiple devices!
“We are thrilled to be able to offer a service just for subtitle fans. We know that fans have different ways of consuming anime, and this service offers an affordable way for subtitle fans to watch all of their favorite shows” said Gen Fukunaga, President and CEO of FUNimation Entertainment.
We at FUNimation feel the same way fans do about anime and the amazing people in Japan who work so hard to make the shows that we all love – the production staff, animators, and voice actors, to name a few. The SubPass is a great way to show your support for the Japanese anime industry and its creators. The more you watch, the more we can pay the licensors in Japan, and in turn, the more content we can bring to you.
The FUNimation SubPass is available for the low price of $4.95/month. Or try it for 3 months at $12.95. For the best value, sign up for the yearly subscription at $39.95 – a 33% savings! That’s $3.33/month or 11 cents/day!
For a limited introductory period, SubPass subscribers will also be able to access both subbed and dubbed content on funimation.com and across each of the FUNimation apps. For more information on the FUNimation apps, please visit funimation.com/apps.
For fans of both English dubs and subtitles, we will continue to offer our original subscription service (EVS), now called the All-AccessPass. This provides unlimited access to both subbed and dubbed episodes, including the new FUNimation Broadcast Dubs, English-dubbed episodes of select shows that are currently broadcasting in Japan. The All-AccessPass will still be offered at $7.95/month and $59.95/12-month. We are also pleased to offer a new $18.95/3-month option.
For all subscribers, we’ve recently made many updates to our service, which have significantly enhanced the user experience. We have a new queue and improved video player and navigation. In addition, we have updated several of our device apps, with more updates to come. We have also recently launched new apps such as the PS3 app, with the PS4 and Xbox One apps are coming soon. Please check back often as we continue to make updates!
Finally, new content is being added every day during our winter simulcast season! If you are not yet a subscriber, now is the perfect time to join so that you don’t miss out on a single show or movie.
