Ad-supported, subscription, and download-to-own video options promised




The Crunchyroll video-streaming website has announced today that it will offer the Speed Racer animated series via ad-supported, subscription, and download-to-own video services. The press release states that the car-racing series will be available to watch starting today, but only three trailers for this year's live-action movie, the original opening theme, and an anime music video are on the website as of 6:00 p.m. ET. In addition to online streaming, the website plans to offer both individual episodes and digital "boxsets" with special extras through a download-to-own service. The downloads in this service will have no digital rights management (DRM).

Speed Racer is the fourth Japanese animated project that the website announced that it is authorized to distribute, after DLE's Eagle Talon and Gonzo's upcoming The Tower of Druaga: the Aegis of Uruk and Blassreiter television series. Speed Racer is based on Hiroshi Sasagawa and Tatsunoko Production's 1967-1968 Mach Go Go Go television series.

Am I the only one to find it odd that Shinji hasn't let the site know about this first? Instead you're off believing what someone else has up?

Actually it is only you. I posted a guest book message a few minutes ago to check if this is true. If it isn't i will be taking this post down.
