Hulu Funimation Plan Multi Year Anime Deal

Hulu and Funimation have announced a multi-year partnership and output deal for anime programming with new subtitled and dubbed titles from Funimation coming to Hulu each year.

Under the deal, Hulu will have first look at U.S. SVOD rights to future anime series produced and released by Funimation beginning in 2019, and will make Hulu and Funimation the co-exclusive premiere destinations to certain new subtitled anime hits day and date with the worldwide premiere in Japan.

The pact marks Hulu’s largest agreement for anime programming to date and broadens their previously-existing agreement which will make both Hulu and Funimation the co-exclusive U.S. premiere homes to dozens of new anime titles each year.

The pair are the only platforms in the U.S. to stream all subbed and dubbed episodes of top anime hits including “Attack on Titan,” “My Hero Academia,” and “Tokyo Ghoul”.
