Viz Media Anime Service Hits Hulu11 Feb, 2014 By: Chris Tribbey
Anime distributor Viz Media’s episodic anime channel Neon Alley is now available for users of both Hulu and Hulu Plus.
Effective April 1, Viz anime programming will be available on the free ad-supported Hulu and subscription-based Hulu Plus. Viz is also consolidating all its online streaming to NeonAlley.com, eliminating VIZAnime.com
“Neon Alley’s mission has always been to offer an innovative way for domestic fans to access and enjoy dubbed high-quality anime content legally, and as a content partner for Hulu and Hulu Plus, the Neon Alley brand makes a big stride to fulfill this objective and expand our audience substantially across the most widely used digital platforms and devices,” said Brian Ige, VP of animation for Viz. “Viewers will have more free ways than ever to access and watch their favorite shows, and we look forward to fans joining us for a new era of anime enjoyment.”
