Sorry if this has been already mentioned in another thread but it's possible for both CR and Funi to stream the same series, isn't it? After all, Yona of Dawn, Attack on Titan is available for streaming for both CR users and Funi. Did I get it right?

Funimation does the U.S. / CR the other regions!

I think it is good / Funimation does does do distrubtion / Dubs / and simulcast here while CR does other regions !

In the past viewers missed out a lot! I think the licensors think it's a good idea to have more people watch! The get to sell more sub / and dubs( DVD's ) that way!

It is about time too! We got shortchanged in the past when not all the dshows aired!

Now with both most of the shows are aired!

I think they feel some pressure from Netflix streaming more titles too whether it's a( truce yea Right! ) more shows can be seen in more regions! It a start at least!

I think so, but as I've stated before I don't really like Funi.
Though IIRC both CR and Funi did Free! eternal summer simulcasts…

It's completely possible, but sometimes Funimation likes to buy an exclusive license so they are they only site that can stream the series for particular regions. My guess is Funimation's pitch for the exclusive license means that either Funimation out bid every other site or the price for the license was just too much and other sites backed down.

.. Which is why I subscribe to Crunchy and not Funi. Those bidding dollars ultimately have to come from their subscribers. Exclusive contracts are always harmful to the viewers. I wish copyright owners were not allowed to make them. That way places like CR and funi would have to compete on other things, like service, instead of just to see who can collect all the marbles.

Funi does the dubs and they choose shows that will definitely sell. CR is focused on simulcast subs, and seem to take more chances on niche titles.

I've seen a lot of overlap, but there are a few series which are exclusive for each.

I find that Funimation has a lot more adult anime like Black Lagoon, Hellsing, etc.
