Any idea about international (in non-English speaking countries) presence? I was under an impression they wanted to expand to other countries, so with Amazon's current availability would be a good way to offer an alternative to Netflix, with more shows simulcasted internationally.

If Funimation will ever expand their market to non-english speaking countries, then they should avoid some licensing problems in terms with companies. Because some funimation-titles are licensed to another company in Europe.

No, it won't be any stuff with Amazon. If Funimation want to expand to other countries, I assume that they'll go with Escandinavia and Latin America (according to their licenses) with their own service FunimationNow, not Amazon. This stuff with Amazon is only with Prime Channels, not as a content aggregator precisely.
