Get ready for even more Crunchyroll! Have you ever longed for more anime, or just a steady stream of it to discover new titles that rely on you picking one from a platform? Well, Crunchyroll has you covered with an all new channel that will open the world of anime up for people to stumble into the medium.
Crunchyroll announced a new 24/7 channel launching today to promote the growing medium of anime. Viewers can now watch the art form taking the world by storm in a whole new way. Amazon Freevee (October 17), LG Channels (October 11), The Roku Channel (October 11), and VIZIO WatchFree+ (October 11) are the first to carry the Crunchyroll channel.
The channel will immediately reach an anime-curious audience by making a telecast schedule of fan-favorite catalog anime available. Series available at launch include Horimiya, Ranking of Kings, Moriarty the Patriot, PSYCHO–PASS, Arifureta, Sugar Apple Fairytale, To Your Eternity, and Code Geass. New and premium anime content will remain on Crunchyroll’s SVOD and AVOD services.
If you’re not a sub-watcher, the Crunchyroll Channel across platforms will be programmed with dubbed series in English at launch, allowing for anyone to start watching, or just keep it on in the background while you work. Other promotional, genre, and theme programming blocks will be scheduled for viewers to sample the wide range of anime being created in Japan.
“The Crunchyroll channel is a gateway to the world of anime where we will guide viewers to discover new worlds, new stories, and new characters,” said Rahul Purini, President of Crunchyroll. “And thanks to our distribution partners at launch, millions of fans have easy access to the medium that is taking the world by storm!”
The channel is a collaboration between Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Crunchyroll and GSN, with more information from the anime streamer to come.
