Funimation and Hulu have entered into a multi-year exclusive partnership to bolster Hulu’s library of anime content available for streaming.
The deal sees Funimation serving as the primary provider for both subtitled and dubbed anime on Hulu, making it the largest anime streaming deal in Hulu’s history. Starting next year, Hulu will have a first look at on-demand streaming rights to future anime series from Funimation. Additionally, Hulu and Funimation will be the co-exclusive premiere platforms for new subtitled anime the same day they debut in Japan.
Funimation and Hulu are now the only services in the US that stream both subtitled and dubbed episodes of a number of anime series, including My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, and Tokyo Ghoul.
