Funimation's UK and Ireland page has announced the following:
"All 148 episodes of Hunter x Hunter are coming to Funimation. You'll be able to enjoy this fan-favourite adventure both subbed and dubbed, available to stream in the UK and Ireland from July 17th."
The long-running series is the second TV series version of the manga by Yoshihiro Togashi. In the story, the protagonist is Gon Freecs, whose father abandoned him as a baby in order to become a Hunter, an elite class with a license to go anywhere or do almost anything. Now 12 years old, Gon wishes to follow in his father's footsteps and become a great Hunter. While Gon faces the unexpected challenges the Hunter Examination throws at him, he makes friends with three other candidates: Kurapika, Leorio, and Killua.
