Amazon has launched a dedicated anime channel called “Anime Strike” on their Prime service. The additional premium channel costs an extra $4.99 per month and requires an Amazon Prime membership ($10.99 per mo.).
The service offers popular anime series such as Spice and Wolf, Urara Meirocho, Girls und Panzer, Attack on Titan, and Death Note.
Anime Strike exclusive series include the first seasons of Scum’s Wish, ONIHEI, The Great Passage, and Shin chan Spin-off vol.1, among others.
The service also offers streaming movies such as Akira (1988), Paprika (2007), Steamboy (2005), The Garden of Words (2017), and Vampire Hunter D (2017).
“We tend to focus on our customers and their needs, and our big difference is that we’re using the data we have as Amazon to know the type of programming that would excite our audience,” said VP of Amazon Digital Video, Michael Paull.
Anime Strike adds to the number of over-the-top networks available on Amazon Prime without a TV service provider such as Cinemax, HBO Now, Showtime, and Starz.
Amazon offers a 7-day trial of Anime Strike, which is available to watch on multiple devices including Smart TVs, streaming media players, tablets, phones and PCs.
