https://help.funimation.com/hc/en-us...remium-Pricing (Aug 31)

New Premium Pricing

Has the price of my Funimation subscription changed?

Beginning August 31, 2022, the price of some Funimation Premium plans have changed. These changes will be reflected in your next billing cycle starting on October 5, 2022, and charged to your current payment method on file.

See the new plan prices below for our ad-free options. If you want to make any changes to your subscription, please visit your account page.



Why is the price changing?

No one likes prices going up, but there are times when we just have to raise them. As you know, Funimation is transitioning to a unified subscription service with Crunchyroll. A necessary step to achieve completion of this unification is for Funimation to adjust the prices for some of our Premium plans.


When will the price change come into effect?

The price increase for new Funimation Premium plan subscribers is effective as of August 31, 2022. If you are an existing Premium Plan subscriber, these changes will be reflected in your next billing cycle (monthly or annual) starting October 5, 2022.


Do I need to take any action?

No, all changes will be reflected automatically in your next billing cycle starting on October 5, 2022, and charged to your current payment method on file. To avoid any increased plan charges, you may also cancel your Premium Plan at any time before your next billing cycle after October 5, 2022.


Where can I see my payment details and pricing?

You can review your current Funimation plan and billing details by visiting My Account. Please note that if you are already a Funimation subscriber, you'll see these changes reflected in your next billing cycle starting on October 5, 2022.


Funimation Annual Price

Existing annual Premium Plan members will be notified of applicable price changes along with their annual subscription renewal notice.


******


It's unclear which regions this applies to.

Price Increase FAQ

When do these prices apply?

Our new prices will appear on charges after 10/31 for existing customers, and for new customers after 9/26.

What do I get for the additional cost?

With these changes we can continue the expansion of show content, we get to keep adding more dubs, and offer more Anime and Manga services and content. You can already see the huge increases in shows already added. As always, we are committed to connecting you to the best Anime and Manga products and services anywhere in the world.

Wait, why is there still a Funimation service to begin with that's not just a Crunchyroll plan?

I migrated my plan over to Crunchyroll but they somehow kept my Funimation access. If they autorenew me at a higher rate on what is basically a dead platform...

I'm assuming CR is trying to convince Funimation only subscribers to come to Crunchyroll. There are still select content (getting smaller) that gets upload to both sites.

I thought they said a while ago that the new stuff was only going to Crunchyroll? Funi still has some things that haven't migrated over (I should check if they finally did the One Piece dub or not)

Funimation site is streaming My Hero Academia: Season 6, Pop Team Epic: Season 2, and Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!: Season 2 (so far).

Crunchyroll doesn't have One Piece dub. CR is adding catalog titles very slowly (typically on Tuesdays).

You're right, I should've said "all new series"
As of Mar 1, 2022, existing and new Crunchyroll subscribers will have access to library and simulcast content previously exclusive to Funimation. All new series from the upcoming Spring 2022 season will stream exclusively on Crunchyroll; Funimation will only continue to add new episodes of current series. For more details visit the Crunchyroll Release Calendar here.

I gave up on them moving the queue/watchlist over, which they also said they've been working on since March.

I've already cancelled my Funimation subscription and opted to watch crunchyroll exclusive titles on other services through VPN instead. It's bad enough I pay for a whole bunch of services. It's getting oversaturated.

Maybe I'm not understanding, if you subscribed to Funimation before why not just subscribe to Crunchyroll instead? Some kind of stand against them?
