FunimationNow Introduces New 3-Tiered Membership System: What You Need to Know

Members of FunimationNow will have some choices to make come April 10, because that’s when Funimation’s streaming service rolls out its new tiered membership programs – replacing the current subscription program and add-on options. Starting in April, subscribers can choose from three membership tiers: Premium, Premium Plus, and Premium Plus Ultra (new tiers will be available in the U.S. and Canada only).

All three tiers offer ad-free, HD access to FunimationNow’s entire library of subbed and dubbed anime from current and catalog shows, including titles like Dragon Ball Super, Attack on Titan, My Hero Academia, Cowboy Bebop, Fairy Tail, One Piece, and more. On April 9, current Premium subscribers will be rolled over into the Premium Plus tier but kept at their current $5.99 per month rate for as long as membership is kept current – a savings of $2 per month.
