Anime fans can now add Sony Pictures Television’s FunimationNow to their Prime Video package.
The channel is available as part of the Prime Video Channels service and costs an additional £4.99 per month, for which viewers will get “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.
New shows will be available with English subtitles the day after they air in Japan, with English dubbed versions available a couple of weeks later.
“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.”
