On Tuesday, Crunchyroll announced its collaboration with Amazon to distribute the Crunchyroll subscription service on Prime Video.
This service is now available via Prime Video channels in the U.S.
Services for Canada, Sweden, and the U.K. will be launched this week and in more territories by this year.
Crunchyroll’s Fana and Mega Fan tiers will be available through Prime Video. The Mega Fan tier also provides offline viewing in addition to ad-free streamers.
Crunchyroll recently also collaborated with Sony Pictures Entertainment’s GSN and launched a new 24/7 linear channel on Amazon Freevee, LG Channels, the Roku Channel, and VIZIO WatchFree+.
On August 9, 2021, Sony’s Funiomation Global Group acquired Crunchyroll from AT&T for 1.175 billion USD.
Deadline reported that Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service will begin running advertisements for subscribers in the United States in early 2024.
The service will be available ad-free for the new subscription tier, which can be accessed by paying an additional 2.99 USD per month on the base subscription fee.
