Amazon Channels, the OTT-SVOD service from Amazon, has launched Anime Strike, billing it as its first curated on-demand subscription offering.
Available to U.S. Prime subs, Anime Strike, a service that competes with SVOD services such as Crunchyroll, sells for $4.99 per month following a seven-day free trial. Amazon said Anime Strike offers a mix of library and newly released episodes curated by Amazon, with more than 1,000 ad-free episodes and movies on offer out of the chute. Individual series include The Great Passage, Scum’s Wish and Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga.
Amazon launched its SVOD aggregation service about a year ago with about 30 channels. It has since expanded to about 100 SVOD channels, with HBO and Cinemax among the recent additions.
