Crunchyroll reportedly launches on Prime Video Channels. With this new development, it means that you can now stream anime within the Prime Video app along with your other subscriptions on the platform.
Crunchyroll on Prime Video Channels
Fans of Anime can now get access to Crunchyroll via their Prime Video accounts as an add-on channel. The two firms just recently announced a new partnership on Tuesday that reportedly brings the massive library of the anime giant to Amazon’s streaming platform. The Crunchyroll Prime Video channel as you should know is now available in the US, Canada, Sweden as well as the UK, with more additional regions to follow in the year 2024.
And although the standalone Crunchyroll app in question offers three plan options, members of Prime can now select from only two subscriptions which are Fan ($8 per month) and on the other hand Mega Fan ($10 a month). Both plans in question as you should know are ad-free and are inclusive of new simulcasts from Japan. Mega Fan subscribers at launch will reportedly be able to download titles to watch offline, with other membership benefits set to be rolled out later. You should however note that the free and Ultimate plan offerings of Crunchyroll are excluded from the Prime Video channel offering.
Prime Videos and Its Impressive Lineup
Prime Video for those that don’t know is well-known for its lineup of TV shows, Amazon originals, Freevee ad-supported TV as well as movie rentals. But the streaming service on the other hand also has a vast selection of add-on channels for platforms, and this is including Starz, Max, AMC Plus, Shudder, and even HiDive, which is yet another anime streamer. And subscribing to add-on channels through Prime simply means that you can get access and pay for them via Amazon. This in question saves you a step if it is that you would rather not download or get to sign into multiple streaming apps separately.
A Brief History of Crunchyroll and Users Will Benefits from This Collaboration
Crunchyroll since launching way back in 2006 has become a force in the world of anime. This firm as you should know is a Sony-owned brand encompassing anime streaming, gaming, merchandise as well as digital manga. The firm also hosts its very own events such as the annual Crunchyroll Anime Awards. And after merging with fellow industry giant Funimation back in 2022 officially, the platform is now home to over 40,000 episodes of content in several languages. Favorites are inclusive of Demon Slayer, Attack on Titan, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Spy x Family.
