Crunchyroll has announced that current and new subscribers will now have access to Funimation’s library and new streaming content. This migration will complete the original promise to fans of consolidating the previously separate services into a single subscription. Throughout this time, Crunchyroll prices will remain the same.
“When we brought Funimation and Crunchyroll together last year, our top priority was to put fans first,” said Colin Decker, CEO of Crunchyroll. “Unifying all of our brands and services under the Crunchyroll brand globally allows us to deliver more value than ever before as we combine subtitles, dubs, simulcasts, library, music, movies, manga – all in one subscription.”
If you subscribe to both services, you might be wondering if you should keep your Funimation subscription. Fusion just updated its FAQ to address this issue, and it recommends double subscribers cancel their Funimation charge.
“It also means that all series from the upcoming Spring season (the biggest ever – stay tuned!) and beyond will only stream on Crunchyroll,” Crunchyroll announced on their site. “Going forward, Funimation will only add new episodes of continuing series, which means Funimation users will want to upgrade to a Crunchyroll account as soon as possible.”
With this move, Crunchyroll has become the ultimate animation experience with subtitles, dubs, movies and series simultaneously streaming in over 200 countries and territories and in 10 languages.
