My dear friends at Funimation,
Once upon a time, the Ford Motor Company built airplanes. To be more precise, Ford bought the Stroud airplane company and proceeded to produce one of there designs as the Ford Trimotor. it is regarded as an aviation classic. However, once the Trimotor became obsolete Ford ceased producing airplanes. Why is that? Ford builds good cars, they aren't an airplane company. They could not come up with a design to follow on after the trimotor. The moral of this story is to do what you are good at and let others do what they are good at.
Funimation, you are very good at localizing anime for the English speaking world. You are not, However, any good at streaming the same on the internet. I don't need to list the issues, you know what they are. You've heard enough of the complaints. As i write this, once again streaming is not working on the site. I'll just say that Funimation is not serving their streaming subscription customers well. The question at hand is.... What to do about it? (see the moral above) Funimation, I humbly suggest you let another company, one which is good at internet streaming to handle streaming your product. It does not take an internet nerd to figure out that Funimation already has a relationship with Hulu. Your commercial supported content is obviously hosted by Hulu. One can certainly recognize the announcer for the "brought to you by" clips is the same. anyone who watches Hulu as well would recognize it.
Two scenarios come to mind to resolve this situation.
1. Continue Funimation.com and subscription service as is but port the streaming hosting to Hulu or another reliable provider. I'm sure a mutually beneficial arrangement can be made. As noted above the technology exists.
2. Close the Elite Subscription service and license all your content to a third party subscription provider such as Hulu+ or NetFlix and keep Funimation.com as a storefront for your physical product.
I have been a long time customer of Funimation. I've purchased dozens of titles on DVD and subscibed to the Elite Streaming service almost from it's inception. It just saddens me to see how tragically your streaming service has turned out despite our patience waiting for you to figure it out. Please, please, put an end to this misery.
