Crunchyroll Now on Prime Video Channels in Canada
Anime streaming service Crunchyroll is now on Prime Video, as part of Amazon’s Prime Video Channels. The service is now available in the U.S. and Canada, with launches in Sweden and the UK scheduled for this week. Additional territories will be added throughout 2024.
Prime members have the option to choose between two Crunchyroll memberships: Fan or Mega Fan. Both memberships allow ad-free streaming of Crunchyroll’s extensive anime library, which includes 24,000 hours, 46,000 episodes, and over 1,300 series and films.
Prices start at $9.99 per month in Canada and vary by country. Mega Fan subscribers will also have the option to download titles for offline viewing, with more non-video benefits to be added soon.
“We look forward to welcoming new fans into the anime community through our launch on Prime Video Channels,” said Terry Li, EVP of Emerging Business at Crunchyroll, in a statement to iPhone in Canada.
“Prime Video already offers an unparalleled collection of premium entertainment, including third-party channels so customers can enjoy their favorite movies and series directly on Prime Video,” added Matt Cohen, head of content acquisition and partnerships, Prime Video Channels. “With the addition of Crunchyroll to Prime Video Channels, Prime members can now easily stream anime content on Prime Video.”
The partnership expands Prime Video’s existing collection of premium entertainment options, which includes content from Amazon MGM Studios and other third-party channels. It also enhances Crunchyroll’s global reach, which already serves fans in over 200 countries with a variety of anime titles, events, games, and consumer products.
New Crunchyroll subscribers can look forward to more than 50 new titles this fall, including series like “Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End,” “One Piece,” and “JUJUTSU KAISEN.”
Prime Video is available in Canada with a Prime subscription at $9.99/month or $99 per year.
