I just tried to watch an anime on Funimation and the dub version was only available on hulu and the sub i could watch but with 6 adds each lasting at least 30sec prob 1min though. I had to be a member of hulu to watch the hd version. Now, keep in mind i'm an elite member of funimation. So i guess now i have to be an elite member of both sites to watch hd. And, there will be adds either way now that hulu has joined in. Funimation should just give Crunchyroll the rights to stream the anime and they keep to the dvds, etc.

sent you a PM.

also, if you haven't already, consider posting in the funi EVS forums.

Or email their customer service. I'm an EVS member and EVERY video I've watched for the longest time, has been on their video player/server.

You have to be an EVS member to watch many dubs on the site. Most videos are ad free with EVS but not all of them. Symphogear first season for instance is SD and ads only, no EVS version which sucks.

Also if you are an elite member, remember to click the Watch Elite version of the shows. I have made the mistake a few times of clicking the Watch Free, which will do the whole numerous amounts of ads and what not.

Adblocker doesn't work on Hulu's player, it just makes every ad break 120 seconds of staring at a black screen.

Which series was this? I've never seen a Funimation dub that was available on Hulu but not via Funimation EVS.

Don't forget Funimation's new policy about not posting about problems in the forum.

Yes, they ask that you instead fill out the form here:
http://www.funimation.com/support
Though I have found once I have a good relationship with one of their support folks I get much faster service if I email them as well after I send my ticket in. Otherwise it can take weeks or months (seriously) for them to get through their support tickets. They are improving but... only slowly...

the series Allonan's having issues with is Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar. i tried a couple episodes in sd/hd and sub/dub and couldn't replicate the same issue.

Hmm, I guess I didn't see that new policy. Of course I spend maybe a tenth of the time in Funi's forums compared to how much I'm hanging around here.
