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.
Neon Alley launched in Fall of 2012, offering uncut dubbed anime, including Tiger & Bunny, InuYasha: The Final Act, Zetman, Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne, and new episodes of Naruto Shippūden.
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.
