For those of you who did not make the live broadcast to Rojas and I held on Monday the video is below. Too busy to watch the full hour but want all the info on the new FUNimation.com Elite Subscription we talked about during the event? You’re in luck, we broke out some of the highlighted questions right here for you to enjoy. Think if these as your Elite Subscription cheat sheet.
- Why should I subscribe to FUNimation.com’s Elite Membership over other streaming services? What are some of the biggest differences? Elite Membership gets you anime the same day as you can buy it in stores. This is before Netflix, Hulu+, and even regular members in FUNimation.com. In some cases months before anyone else.
- Can I see subscription videos in Canada? Yes, absolutely. Every video on the site, subscription and non-subscription. Can be viewed in Cananda.
- Is everything in HD? We don’t have HD for every show on the site, but we do have a lot and growing. This is due to not having HD materials available, but expect to see most new shows in HD.
- Where can I find a list of subscription videos on FUNimation.com?

Click here for Movies: http://www.funimation.com/videos/movies-subscription
- What are some of the big shows coming soon exclusively to Elite Membership? Coming later this month we have Hetalia: Paint it white, Chaos Head, and Panty in Stocking (Uncut!). Keep up with our full schedule here: http://www.funimation.com/schedule/subscription/coming-soon
- Are subscription videos uncut? Absolutely. We even have shows that are exclusively uncut for Elite Subscribers such as Dance in the Vampire Bund, Freezing, Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne, and Cat Planet Cuties
- Is everything commercial free? All FUNimation videos are subject to availability per our contracts with our licensors. Some of the shows currently not available are One Piece, Dragon Ball Z, and Yu Yu Hakusho. New simulcasts are not available on FUNimation’s Subscription Service, but can be seen at Niconico.com/anime.
- What else do subscribers get other than video content for subscribing? Subscribers will also haveexclusive access to the Elite Subscription forums where subscribers can talk to each other about some of the videos we added just for them. We will also beposting exclusive news and announcing other extras in this forum from time to time as well. This will let Elite Subscribers be the first to hear the news and share it.
- Will there be exclusive content other than episodes and movies just for Elite Subscribers? Yes, we will be adding extra exclusive videos and other items just for Elite Subscribers. Stay tuned for details on some of these in the near future.
- Are both subbed and dubbed anime in HD for Elite Subscribers? In most cases when we have HD for a show available it will be for both subbed and dubbed anime. Usually we will post the subbed version first and if we picked up the rights to dub the show as well we will add the dub closer to when the DVD or Blu-ray will be available in stores.
UPDATE: To celebrate the launch of the Elite Subscription service, Rojas and I will be holding a live YouTube Q&A event this Monday night (11/7) at 6:00PM Central Time. We will be taking questions from you guys via our Facebook page, Twitter page (use #FUNimationQA), as well as right here on the FUNimation blog.
