Anime company Funimation to launch Windows 10 app for its upcoming streaming service

Anime fans in the U.S are familiar with Funimation, which has released a ton of classic and current TV shows and movies from Japan and other parts of Asia to the States. Now the company is planning to start a streaming service called FunimationNow in February, and it will launch a new universal Windows 10 app as part of its plans.

The company stated:

"Funimation has partnered with Sony DADC New Media Solutions (Sony) to leverage their Ven.ue platform bringing both scale and unique capabilities on the digital front to launch its new ad-free streaming anime service FunimationNow – the first in a series of moves to take this growing genre of entertainment, and Funimation, to the next level. Regardless of device or platform, FunimationNow subscribers will enjoy ad-free, HD streaming of Funimation's expansive library of over 400 simulcast and catalog titles, both subbed and dubbed, including acclaimed shows such as "Dragon Ball Z," "Attack on Titan," "Fairy Tail," "One Piece," "Tokyo Ghoul", "Space Dandy" and many more."

Funimation has not announced what the subscription prices will be for FunimationNow, only stating that it will be available in the U.S., Canada and the UK.
