Anime has become incredibly popular among young adults over the last decade. While anime series and films have been around for much longer, those growing up with iconic anime series will tell you how widespread it’s become. Crunchyroll is one of the biggest streaming services with a wide assortment of anime to watch on demand. For many, it’s their go-to service for most shows, with dubs and subs, that offers a lot more than the competition. Luckily for anime fans, something extra is launching in October 2023.
Crunchyroll has launched a 24-hour, ad-supported anime channel in the United States, starting today (October 11th, 2023). The channel will be available for everyone with access to LG Channels, the Roku Channel, and Vizio WatchFree+ on their devices. At the same time, the service will come to Amazon Freeverse on October 17th, 2023, a short time after the initial launch. The Crunchyroll channel will have popular anime shows and a lineup of older series with English dubbing for viewers to watch and enjoy.
Some of the series that will play with the service at launch include the following anime…
- Ranking of Kings
- Moriarty the Patriot
- Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest
- Sugar Apple Fairytale
- To Your Eternity
- Code Geass
Crunchyroll president Rahul Purini talked about the channel in a statement sent to multiple outlets. “The Crunchyroll channel is a gateway to the world of anime where we will guide viewers to discover new worlds, new stories, and new characters… Thanks to our distribution partners at launch, millions of fans have easy access to the medium that is taking the world by storm.”
The Crunchyroll channel is a collaboration between Crunchyroll and GSN. EVP of Distribution for GSN, Tim Carry, also commented on the launch of the channel. “GSN is thrilled by the massive response from our platform partners for this channel, which is a testament to Crunchyroll’s brand and library.”
