I use hulu plus mainly for some anime(dubs mainly) but recently they're have been multiple anime simulcasted by them I'm interested in. My question is should I pay for the subscription just to avoid waiting a week? Also do you need the paid app instead of the free one? One last question is the player within the app better than the one from the actual site?

Funimation updated their website sometime last year and the player they use is a ton better. I know before I tried a free trial and only watched a few videos and most of which lagged terribly or just refused to load. Now I can watch anything without a worry on their website. I bought the 6 months of streaming for $20 from Funimation the day they did their deal and I really like it. I was never a big fan of watching anime on Hulu+ with ads.

But seriously this is beating a dead horse here.

Anyways my take on it:
If you can't deal with ads, go with FUNi subscription.
If you can deal with ads, go with Hulu+.
If you have the money and don't care, just sub to everything, like me.

Hulu+ does not do simulcasts, they only get simulcasts a week late from providers like FUNi and CR (among others).

Yes, this does come up from time to time, and even very recently. I'm closing this because individual threads requesting help/advice aren't allowed.

However, I have repurposed an earlier thread on the subject so everyone has a place to go to share their opinions and experiences with other legal streaming sites. Please take a look over there, and share what you know!
