Maybe in other countries, but for simulcasts CR still dominates the US market and with the Funi partnership they basically have a monopoly now.


CR does that in many other countries as well. Usually, when CR doesn't get the streaming rights for a new anime it means it's not licensed at all. That's why Rakugo, ACCA and Konosuba aren't licensed here even though there are two other (big) anime streaming sites.

I don't think CR needs to do anything since they now own the streaming market as far as anime goes. They have a partnership with Funi and it's just that so that the companies can combine their resources to make the ultimate anime watching experience, and in no way does this mean they are merging.

Funny, I let my Funi sub lapse since I'm not interested in dubs.

Actually Funimation & Funimation Are Having Many Great Updates On It's Sites & Apps Styles & Streaming Catalogue.
But, What Will CR Do?


Where is the receipts on this?



CR is fine. They're with Funi now. Funi keeps the dub shows, CR gets the subs. They ain't going nowhere....

if anything, both are probably profiting big time from this: CR gets a bigger selection, first crack at each season's series and newer subscribers looking for subs or an alternative to Netflix/Hulu.

Funi gets more potential buyers interested in their titles when they hit BR/DVD

Umm no. What competitors? Maybe you should include some evidence here...?

Outside of North America it's pretty much CR or nothing. Funimation is region blocked outside of NA except for UK and Ireland even for the last two it isn't the full NA catalog.

If I go to Funimation right now this is what I am greeted with.
"www.funimation.com -
Access Denied
Error code 16
This request was blocked by the security rules"

That message appears for anyone outside of their approved regions NA and UK/Ireland. I think UK and Ireland get sent to their respective site though.

Amazon's prime streaming and Netflix combined have less then the last 2 CR seasons combined. So they are hardly a threat.

Prime streaming 90% of the shows they have are found on here and the total number isn't all that many as well.

Netflix deals with distributors more then licensing the shows directly if there is no distributor for anime in the region or they say no.
Then there is normally next to nothing anime wise on it for that region. Seven Deadly Sins and Glitter Force (Smile PreCure) a couple of others are the only ones Netflix have gotten directly. I have gotten Netflix for the whole of 2017 completely free from my ISP and I still think it's over priced.

Most regions in the world have Viewster and Daisuki for maybe a few extra titles. CR still has the most out of all of them.

Animelab the dedicated anime streaming site for my region has a massive 6 simulcasts this season. At least 3 of them are found on here.

Clearly, the OP of this thread, is "greatly misinformed"; to say the least....
