Crunchyroll is now a Prime Video channel, which means that we can access content from the streaming platform directly inside the Prime Video app, just for an added subscription.
Crunchyroll joins Paramount+, Starz, PBS, Max, and more in the list of Prime channels, and this distribution agreement adds more than 24,000 hours, 46,000 episodes, and 1,300 series and films to the overall library.
What is Crunchyroll?
Crunchyroll is a popular streaming service that primarily focuses on anime and Asian content, including anime series, manga, and Asian dramas.
Crunchyroll offers both free and premium subscription options. With a premium subscription, users get benefits like ad-free streaming, early access to new episodes, and the ability to watch in higher video quality.
It often offers simulcasts, which means they stream new episodes shortly after they air in Japan. Premium users typically get access to these episodes as soon as they become available.
Crunchyroll Launches on Prime Video
Crunchyroll is currently accessible through Prime Video Channels in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Sweden. Furthermore, it is set to expand its availability on Prime Video to additional regions during the course of 2024.
Prime members now have the choice between two Crunchyroll membership options: Fan and Mega Fan. These options grant customers ad-free access to the complete Crunchyroll library and the ability to watch new episodes soon after they debut in Japan.
Mega Fan subscribers can also download titles for offline viewing, with additional non-video benefits to be added shortly. The plan starts at $7.99 per month in the U.S. Prices may vary by country.
Some popular series that are now available with the Crunchyroll subscription include Death Note, Ghost in The Shell, Attack on Titan, Hunter x Hunter, and My Hero Academia.
Titles are now available across Prime Video, Amazon Freevee, and Prime Reading.
