HIDIVE's Full Library Now Available on VRV Streaming Service
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Ellation's VRV bundle streaming service confirmed with ANN on Friday that the full library for the HIDIVE streaming service is now available on VRV.
The content includes current simulcast series such as Bloom Into You (English dub), Gakuen Basara: Samurai High School, The Girl in Twilight, and Release the Spyce (English dub).
VRV started adding HIDIVE's content on November 3, and had originally planned to add all the content from HIDIVE onto the service by the end of November.
Crunchyroll and Funimation Entertainment had announced on October 18 that their partnership to share content would end on November 9. VRV also announced that it would no longer have the FunimationNow streaming service as part of its VRV Premium Subscription, or as an individual channel subscription, as of November 9.
Crunchyroll has removed titles associated with its partnership with Funimation as of November 9, but Funimation clarified that "certain shows" that were part Funimation's agreement with Crunchyroll will remain on both platforms. Funimation added more than 300 subtitled anime works to its FunimationNow service last month, and Crunchyroll is adding nearly 50 English-dubbed anime titles.
