So it seems like Funimation is quite the backstabber .. They have an "Agreement" with Hulu

Truly A Deceitful Tactic

Okay, I was going to subscribe to Funimation, but now I won't. I absolutely hate Hulu's business practice (limited or no commercials - that is a loophole for them to give you commercials when they see fit i.e. sponsors and/or on shows they know people want to watch that are exclusive to their site). I will never give them a dime of my money, I don't care how much they charge. I also find it funny how their "NO COMMERCIALS" plan for $11.99 a month says that there will STILL BE COMMERCIALS! I don't see how people can't smell the greed with this company.

Sounds good to me. Hulu is a nice and reliable service and I've always liked to watch anime on it.

Also nothing all that new or shocking, since Funimation used the Hulu player to host the SD streams of their entire catalog for years in the past.

I get that some of you guys are really clinging to CR loyalty for whatever reason. But what exactly makes you be that way?

Crunchyroll *cough cough* I mean Ellation moved their ENTIRE team of engineers over to VRV and downgraded us to some form of maintenance mode that's kept afloat by outsourced teams of people who give exactly zero shits about us.

VRV is also literally nothing more than the digital embodiment of Peter Chernin's butthurt at losing his bid to buy Hulu a few years ago. As a competing service it is a colossal and unnecessary waste of resources that could have been better spent making the bread and butter of this company better AKA: CRUNCHYROLL.

Speak of how it sucks that a conglomeration like Sony bought out Funimation all you want, and I'll be right with you saying that it's lame. But let's judge them on their actual sins, not these perceived slights. Because even if Sony hadn't bought them, Funimation was still getting the crap end of that deal no matter how you look at it. Nobody in their right mind would have ever made that switch to VRV if it hadn't been for Funimation's catalog of dubs being included in the mix. I mean what else was it offering? Roosterteeth? Give me a break.

Did you read the "learn more" part?

"Due to streaming rights, the following shows are not included in our No Commercials plan and will play interruption-free with a short commercial before and after each episode: Grey’s Anatomy, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, and How To Get Away With Murder."

I'm not interested in those shows. No commercials for me.

About this Hulu deal, is it just for new shows or will FUNimation be sending over lots of their past titles not currently on Hulu?

Why not subscribe to Funimation then? The title is technically misinformation as Funimation isn't moving anything to Hulu, they're streaming there in addition to their own site. Both Funimaiton (https://www.hulu.com/network/funimation-11508013-117a-495e-b20c-25aef0937c54) and Crunchyroll (https://www.hulu.com/network/crunchyroll-2f15417d-f262-4be5-a3c5-ffa20d2e02bf) already do this Funimation is just having all shows on Hulu to give people more choice.

Now the $0.99 per month for 12 months deal that Hulu persuaded me with seems even more worthwhile. (I can tolerate the limited commercials.)

The last time I was subscribed to Hulu it was especially for One Punch Man (because Daisuki’s player was pretty much unusable).

I cannot for the life of me remember where I watched it. I know I had Daisuki for a while but don't remember watching it there (but probably did). I first watched Inuyasha on Hulu and went on to enjoy so much more on Hulu. And I'm not so spoiled that the ads never bothered me, lol.

The first streamed anime I uh... payed for was on Crunchyroll.

I had Hulu for TV reasons so when anime started finding its way there it just became a pleasant surprise. I would have liked it to stay on CR, but this is good news for me. A good amount that was yoinked from my CR queue like Railgun and Hellsing are already up over there.

Mainly because it's a service available where I live. VRV isn't, Hulu isn't, Funimation Now is, but they've burnt my trust.

I've had the commercial free plan several times since it became available and have yet to see a single commercial. No surprise, as I haven't watched any of the four series noted by nobdy1.

I can still remember that when Funimation started their subscription service, they too had a few shows that still had commercials, even for subscribers (as it was required by the contract they had to license them; some type of ad revenue sharing, I assume).
