FUNimation has announced the launch of a new subscription platform called “SubPass”, that gives fans unlimited access to subtitled anime. Episodes can be streamed in HD, commercial-free, right after the Japanese broadcast, and across multiple devices!
The FUNimation SubPass is available for the low price of $4.95/month. Or you may elect to try it for 3 months at $12.95. For the best value, sign up for the yearly subscription at $39.95 – a 33% savings! For a limited introductory period, SubPass subscribers will also be able to access both subbed and dubbed content on funimation.com and across each of the FUNimation apps for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Roku and their new PS3 app!
FUNimation is only available in North America, but has plans to expand into other territories such as the UK in the next few months. The company has a number of anime titles that their main competitor Crunchyroll simply does’t have, such as Tokyo Ghoul and Assassination Classroom.
