FunimationNow – Free Anime Anytime, Anywhere!

When we launched our new mobile apps earlier this year, a lot of people were disappointed to see that fans with free accounts were unable to access them. Well, we heard your feedback and we’re happy to announce that, with the new site launch, we’re
bringing AVOD back to the FunimationNow Apps for iOS, Android, Kindle, PlayStation, and Roku!

On top of that, fans with free accounts will be able to access more content than ever from our apps. Including dubbed versions of any shows currently available from a free account on our site. For gaming consoles, that means more than just promo episodes—
full anime series that you pay nothing for!

 

The enhanced video player and experience on the new site will also extend to our free account users. Everything you watch ad-supported will be the same level of quality as our Premium Subscribers have access to, including HD video when it’s available.

 

Thanks so much for your continued feedback about our site and service. Be on the lookout, we’ll have more updates and information coming soon!

 

Funimation.com Changes – Discover an Extraordinary User Experience

When it comes to watching anime, we believe the hardest part should be picking a show, not finding one. That’s why the new Funimation.com will feature more ways than ever to easily and intuitively discover and enjoy more anime on any screen!

 

More Apps on More Devices

Anime spans a ton of diverse genres, and that means a ton of diverse fans! Not every fan watches the same way, but everyone deserves to be able to watch how they want. During our FunimationNow launch, we’ll be rolling out new apps for more devices than ever. Including updated apps for ALL mobile and tablet devices, completely new console apps for Apple TV, Roku, Xbox, PlayStation, and PlayStation Vita!

Mobile Responsive Site

No app? No problem! The new Funimation.com will be built responsively so you can watch any FunimationNow shows on the web from your tablet or phone. It’s not just our video player that’s mobile optimized, the all-new Funimation Shop will also be easier to browse on any device so nothing can stand between you and your favorite anime merch.

Search and Discover

Funimation.com has the largest library of English dubs online, and with every passing season our catalog grows bigger and bigger. Finding new shows to watch will never be a problem, but picking the one that’s right for you can be paralyzing. Not anymore! Our new site will allow you to search for shows by show title, keywords, genre, and year—as well as make smart show recommendations based on your previous viewing habits.

Curated Content

The new shows we get every season are great and get a lot of love, but we don’t want to forget the classics you may have missed the first time around. That’s why we’ve created curated and mood-themed playlists to help boost the visibility of some of our favorite cult classics and underappreciated gems. These lists will come out regularly and grow and change with the help of fans like you!
