FUNimation Launches XBox One App

The One’s getting a dose of FUN…imation!

On Tuesday, FUNimation released a free streaming app for the XBox One video game console. The app, which is available in the United States and Canada, is similar in form and function to the app available on Sony’s PlayStation 4. It does include a new feature, though, which allows sers to stream an anime video in the sidebar as they’re playing a game, or using a second app.

FUNimation has been rolling out apps for a multitude of platforms, which include the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Roku, iOS, and Android.

The PlayStation 4 app launched in April, and is currently available for free download on Sony’s PlayStation Network store.
