Hulu is making moves to get more content to its platform and it just landed a Funimation partnership. If you remember a couple weeks ago Funimation and Crunchyroll broke up and Funimation found its new man named Hulu!
Just like the Crunchyroll deal, This will allow Hulu to gain access to some awesome anime titles from Funimation like My Hero Academia and Attack on Titan. “What this partnership brings us is the highest volume of high-quality anime hits, day and date when they release in Japan,” Lisa Holme, Hulu’s VP of content acquisition told Variety. This deal will help Hulu by getting Funimation’s anime series first before any other streaming platforms and will also get the dubbed versions, The deal will start in the beginning of 2019.
This is a very big hit for both Crunchyroll and I would also say Netflix. I say Netflix because it just lost all the Marvel shows it had and now Hulu just got better with content that includes anime. Crunchyroll lost the Funimation deal so they will also need to step it up because these streaming platforms are always trying to out grow each other.
Hulu is looking more and more like the streaming platform to be watching all your favorite shows. What are your guys thought about this move for both Hulu and Funimation?
