Sometimes, it’s just easier to pay upfront…
Earlier today, HIDIVE announced that they launched an annual membership plan. Under the new plan, customers can pay $47.88 upfront for a full year of service. The standard plan is currently priced at $4.99 per month ($59.88 per year).
Yesterday, HIDIVE launched on Amazon’s Kindle Fire TV and Fire TV stick devices.
HIDIVE launched in June 2017, shortly after acquiring the network streaming assets from The Anime Network. The publisher previously launched apps on iOS and Android. HIDIVE announced that they would launch out of their beta period in March. On March 26, HIDIVE launched their DubCast initiative, which sees the publisher streaming dubbed versions of shows within two weeks of their Japanese airing.
Since its inception, HIDIVE has primarily streamed Sentai Filmworks’ library of titles, and scooped up the exclusive streams to dubs of shows like Food Wars! and Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto. In addition, though, the publisher has added numerous high-profile classes that include Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Space Runaway Ideon, and Lone Wolf and Cub (live-action).
