No one watches Hulu except, "By 2015, Hulu reached a 50 percent increase in subscribers and announced that the service had reached nearly 9 million paying subscribers." (Businesswire/CNET)
So if 9 million = 0 I want $0.

Compared to Netflix's 69.17 million.

Hulu is like 11 bucks w/ no adds
Funimation is like 9 or something


Licencing shows costs money, Funimation gets what they want cos they've been in the business longer than I've been alive. I agree it would be nice for them to get more shows if only for me to be able to cancel Hulu, but i'm surprised they do as well as they do tbh.

Funi has an inexpensive subtitle-only plan also for $5/month. The regular monthly plan is $8 a month, but buying annually is even cheaper. $40 for the subtitle-only; $60 for the all-access.

One other reason I think Funi is able to license what they do is that in addition to streaming they do purchase rights (for some shows) for home distribution (DVD/BD) and to create the dubbed version.

I'm fairly sure CR have twice the shows this season than it's nearest competitor.

Most of them are shitty shorts.

According to my sources, discounting the shorts CR still has more shows than it's nearest competitor.

I agree, I feel like almost 1/2 to 2/3 of what I am watching nowadays is on Hulu or Funimation's youtube channel.
