I wonder if they suffer from the same low bitrate and color banding artifact issues (possible mech design spoiler in that link - most the issues look worse in motion than in screenshots so it's hard to get good screenshots of the issues) that Crunchyroll and Funimation stream versions have. I imagine they do, though Amazon generally has better bitrate than most other sites. I'm assuming the color banding/artifacting issues are a source problem, though. I won't spend a dime unless I know the quality issues are resolved so I'll gladly wait for a blu-ray release for FMP IV. One of the few great dubs that exists, so it would be awesome to have. Though it would be weird to hear a certain character with different voices since their voice actor died a few years back.

Would this be called a multi-company monopoly pretty soon? If so, poor Netflix.

ok, so if you're going to pay to own a show digitally, why would you buy the simulcast?

If you like a show enough to want to watch it multiple times, having owning a digital version sounds good, given the price it would make more sense to just own it on Blu-Ray. Which also gives you better quality than streaming and you can watch it even if your internet is being slow.

So Viz uses Hulu to debut their dubs and Funimation uses Amazon. Have to say I prefer the former method
