If I remember correctly, they already have a PS3 app.

I would probably consider it if I wasn't already a Hulu+ subscriber, which (I'm pretty sure) gives me access to all of the Funimation streaming titles.

Hulu has commercials and a 7-day delay on Funimation's simulcasts. And Hulu doesn't have a lot of the new stuff like English dubs for Haganai and Railgun. Also, I notice they don't have Good Luck Girl. So they might be missing a couple shows. But Hulu does have a pretty good selection of anime.

I don't think Funimation puts any uncensored shows on Hulu, When they post dubbed episodes of censored shows on Funimation.com I think most of the time they are uncensored.

Re: Funimation Sale - 6 Months Streaming for $20

I know about the commercials all too well, but I can deal with it. I haven't encountered any uncensored shows among the handful I have watched on there, either, but I can deal with that as well since everything I watch on Crunchyroll (which also has "delayed" episodes) appears to be the same way. Finally, I have no interest in the English dubs unless there's no other option.

All that said, it is only $20...

I just noticed that FUNimation is now offering an Annual Membership for only $54.95. That's around $4.50 a month. It's an awesome price for so much content.

Re: Funimation Sale - 6 Months Streaming for $20

That's not a bad price. I signed up for the 6 months for $20 offer but haven't watched too much yet. There isn't a Funimation for Apple TV and the Funimation App for iPhone to stream to Apple TV is like $9.99 I think? If they released an XBox one app I would watch it more. There are a number of shows that I caught an episode or so on the Funimation channel on UVerse. But they only show dubs and its hard to watch the whole series as they randomly air episodes it seems.

Re: Funimation Sale - 6 Months Streaming for $20

It's ridiculous that they charge $10 for each mobile app. Elite members should get those for free.

Roku have Funimation app. Funny, I had AppleTV till yesterday - I was frustrated with AppleTV's connection problem (i.e. shows kept buffering every few minutes and I have 100Mbps Internet connection) and I got fed up with AppleTV and bought Roku. There's three anime apps (Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Manga) on it.

I'm thinking of starting Funimation subscription and I might get annoyed with their censorship. lol

Re: Funimation Sale - 6 Months Streaming for $20

I have a Roku too, but its not on my main TV. Apple TV has Crunchyroll which is nice as I have their membership for Anime. Hulu Plus I subscribe to as well and it has decent anime selection, but I hate the commercials.

I watched the latest episode of their original animated series, The Awesomes. For a 23 minute show, they had 4 2 minute commercial breaks. I don't think there should be any for paying for it.. but it should definitely not be that much.

You cannot. Sideloading the .apk also does not work, from what I've read.
