FunimationNow - 1

A new home for anime is finding its way to your devices today in the form of FunimationNow.

Anime company Funimation announced a new partnership today with Sony at CES that will see the creation of an entirely new streaming service dubbed FunimationNow. The partnership will see Funimation working with Sony DADC New Media Solutions (Sony) to leverage the Ven.ue platform to launch the new ad-free streaming anime service.

FunimationNow will feature both subbed and dubbed versions of such popular shows as Dragon Ball Z, Attack on Titan, Fairy Tail, One Piece, Tokyo Ghoul, Space Dandy and many more.

Users can expect to see the service launch in February beginning with redesigned iOS, Android and Kindle apps, as well as brand new Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV apps. (Don’t worry, the Roku is supported as well) Even Windows 10 will get in on the fun with a new universal app.

No pricing structure has been announced for the new service as of yet, but that is sure to follow soon.

The options for streaming choices just keeps growing, and with the quality of product in Funimation’s arsenal, this should be one to watch.
