Neon Alley Shifts to Free On-Demand Streaming Starting in April
posted on by Karen Ressler
Viz Media announced on Tuesday that its dubbed anime streaming service Neon Alley, which was previously available for PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 with a monthly subscription fee, will transition to a free, ad-supported service affiliated with Hulu and Hulu Plus starting on April 1. In addition, the service will transition from a linear live stream schedule to video-on-demand, and will add subtitled anime from Viz's catalog, including simulcasts. The service will be available on all devices that support Hulu Plus.
Update: Viz Media already has a VizAnime.com service that streams videos, including subtitled videos, served by Hulu. There will no longer be a linear streaming service that distinguished Neon Alley from VizAnime.com.
