Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and DisneyXD are known for their popular kids’ shows, making them handy tools for any parent in need of kid-friendly entertainment for their little ones. And now, there’s an even more convenient and comprehensive destination for all of Disney’s family programming: Disney Plus.

Building upon the lineup found on Disney’s various networks, the Disney Plus streaming service offers on-demand access to tons of children-friendly programs, along with several exclusive kids’ shows. This selection helps make Disney Plus our pick for the best streaming service for kids.

Everything you need to know 4x3
Sling TV offers several deals and discounted bundles for new members.

Table of Contents: Masthead StickyTV (medium)Free Trial for Verizon Customers (small)

Dollar for dollar, Sling TV is one of the most affordable live TV streaming services on the market, offering a large selection of channels and on-demand content.

Like most streaming platforms, Sling TV provides various promotional deals and free trial offers on a regular basis. That said, the conditions of these trials and discounts often change. Right now, new subscribers can get $25 of their first month. Or, if you’re an eligible Verizon customer, you can two months of Sling for free.

Sling offers other bonuses for new subscribers as well, including free device bundles. Here’s a full rundown of all the Sling TV offers and deals available right now.

New Sling TV members can get $25 off their first month

For a limited time, Sling is offering a $25 discount on the first month of service for new members. This brings the price down to as low as $10 for your introductory month. The promotion also includes one month of Sling’s DVR Plus upgrade, which offers 200 hours of storage.

This deal often comes and goes every few months or so. Sling hasn’t announced when the current “$25 off” deal will expire, so we recommend new subscribers snag the promo now before it’s gone.

Subscribers can choose between Sling Orange, Sling Blue, or the Sling Orange/Blue combo plan to receive the $25 discount. With the deal, your first month of Sling Orange or Blue comes out to $10, while your first month of the Sling Orange/Blue combo comes out to $25.

You must provide an email address and credit card when you sign up. After your first month, your subscription will continue under the regular monthly price unless you cancel. If you want to keep the DVR Plus upgrade you need to pay an additional $5 a month.

Verizon customers can get 2 months of Sling TV for free

Verizon is offering a limited-time promotion for Sling subscribers. New and existing Verizon customers who are new to Sling TV can get two months of Sling’s Orange or Blue plan for free.

The deal is good for Fios, wireless, and 5G Home internet customers. Existing Verizon members who activated their account before May 19 have until July 18 to redeem the offer. New and existing Verizon customers who signed up after that date can redeem the offer within 60 days of their Verizon activation. The promotion ends on February 19, 2022.

Sling’s International and Latino plans are also included in the deal. Verizon customers can choose between two free months of the International Plan or three free months of the Latino Plan.

Your subscription will automatically renew at Sling’s standard monthly price after your trial is over unless you cancel. This offer is not valid for customers in Maine or New Mexico. You can visit Verizon’s website for more information regarding this deal.

Free Trial for Verizon Customers (medium)

Does Sling TV offer a regular free trial?

Sling’s website does not currently include a regular free trial option, but the site has offered a three-day trial in the past.

People who sign up for Sling through the Sling TV app on select devices, however, can still receive a three-day trial. The app is available on most smart TVs and media players, including Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, and Chromecast.

You can get a free AirTV Mini or antenna if you prepay for 2 months of Sling

If you don’t want a discounted month or the Verizon deal, new members can opt for a free device instead.

You can get a free AirTV Mini when you prepay for two months of Sling. The AirTV Mini streaming device typically costs $80 and you can use it to watch Sling and other apps on your TV. The AirTV Mini can be paired with an AirTV 2 and an antenna to add local programming.

Subscribers who just want a simple solution to get local channels can instead get a free antenna ($45 retail value) when they prepay for two months. Though an antenna by itself won’t integrate with your Sling app, it will let you watch local channels that aren’t included with Sling, like ABC and CBS, through your TV.

Sling offers discounted AirTV 2 and AirTV Anywhere bundles if you pay for 3 months

In addition to the antenna and AirTV Mini offer, Sling currently has two other packages that’ll get you discounted devices if you prepay for three months at the regular price.

For $49, you can get an AirTV 2 ($100 retail value) and an antenna ($45 retail value). If you want to record local channels with a built-in DVR, you can opt for a $99 bundle featuring an AirTV Anywhere and an antenna ($245 total retail value).

Sling TV is the best live TV streaming service for cord cutters on a budget

If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more.

  • Starting at $35 a month, Sling TV is one of the most affordable live TV streaming services.
  • Despite a tricky user interface, Sling TV’s streaming quality and channel offerings are excellent.
  • Sling TV plans come with networks like ESPN, CNN, TBS, Food Network, and BBC America.

Sling TV Review and How It works 4x3
Sling TV’s plans start at $35 a month for live TV streaming.

Table of Contents: Masthead StickyTV (small)

When stacked up to other live TV streaming options, Sling TV is one of the most affordable in the industry. The Sling Orange and Blue plans each cost just $35 a month, offering a solid selection of live channels.

That comes out to just over $1 a day each month. For the money, Sling TV provides live streaming access to networks like FX, CNN, AMC, ESPN, Disney, and more. It’s nearly half the cost of competing services like Hulu + Live TV, but you don’t get quite as many channels as those more expensive options.

As an added bonus, new customers can even get their first month for only $10. But, does more affordable translate to better value compared to other streaming platforms? We put the service to the test to see if Sling TV is a viable alternative to cable and satellite.

What is Sling TV?

Sling TV is one of the cheapest options to stream live TV, and it features a selection of many popular channels. The service also includes access to a library of on-demand shows, along with support for recording programs to watch later.

Sling offers a few different plans, as well as add-on channels and packages. The main options are Sling Blue ($35/month), Sling Orange ($35/month), and the Sling Orange/Blue bundle ($50/month).

Orange features the least amount of channels at 33, while Blue includes 44 channels overall. The bundle combines both plans, but since some networks overlap between Orange and Blue, the bundle ends up including a total of 50 channels.

How much is Sling TV?

Sling TV comes in three plans: Orange, Blue, and an Orange/Blue bundle. Orange and Blue each cost $35 a month, while the bundle costs $50 a month.

As part of a special promotion, new members can get their first month of Orange or Blue for just $10. New members can also get a discount on their first month of the Orange/Blue bundle, bringing the price down to $25.

Sling’s promotion tends to alternate between a $10 introductory month and a $25 introductory month, so it’s unclear how long the better deal will last.

Compared to other live TV streaming services, like Hulu + Live TV and YouTube TV, Sling TV subscriptions can cost as much as $30 less per month. You get fewer channels with Sling, but the savings make it a better option for budget streamers.

What channels come with Sling TV?

Sling tv  30+ channels 4x3
You can access the Sling TV app on a variety of devices.

Both Orange and Blue come with a base package of the same 27 channels, including CNN, BBC America, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, and many more. In addition to the base package, both plans have their share of unique channels.

Orange has six unique channels including Disney Channel, ESPN networks, FreeForm, and Motortrend. Blue, on the other hand, has 17 unique channels including Discovery, Fox and NBC (in select markets), NFL Network, USA, and more.

In addition to live TV, Sling comes with an extensive selection of on-demand content from its channel lineup, including titles like “Real Housewives” and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” Sling also has several genre-based add-ons starting at $6 a month.

Before signing up for Sling, we recommend you check out our full breakdown of all the Sling channels and extra packages available to ensure that your favorite networks are included.

How do I stream Sling TV?

Sling TV lets you use a number of devices to stream channels including Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast, iOS and Android devices, Xbox Series X|S, web browsers, and more.

For a full list, the streaming service details all of its supported devices on its website.

Is Sling TV worth it?

Sling TV in living room lifestyle
The Sling TV interface isn’t the best, but it’s getting an update this year.

Despite Sling TV being cheaper than most other live TV streaming options, it maintains great channel offerings and quality playback on par with the competition.

On that front, the service is easily worth the $35/month cost of admission. With over 30 channels on its Blue and Orange plans, Sling TV is one of the most economical ways to stream live TV.

When it comes to cheaper live TV streaming options, Philo offers 66 channels for $25 a month – $10 less than Sling’s base plans. Though Philo includes more storage and its catalog features some networks missing from Sling, like Animal Planet and MTV, it doesn’t offer any local channels. Philo is also lacking in sports coverage since it doesn’t carry channels like ESPN or NFL Network.

With those factors in mind, we think Sling is the better budget option for most people who want a cheaper alternative to cable. That said, there are some drawbacks to keep in mind when choosing Sling.

Sling’s current interface could use some work

One downside is the user interface Sling uses on the majority of its apps. In short, it isn’t particularly attractive or intuitive.

The interface lacks a channel-surfing option, which means you can’t flip through stations like you would on cable. This limits you to a home page broken into horizontal sections, starting with your “Favorite” channels if you’ve selected any.

It’s a useful shortcut, but depending on the size of your screen you’ll only see three to five channels at a time, and you’ll be doing a lot of side-scrolling. Below that you get access to your DVR recordings – Sling TV offers 50 hours of free DVR storage in its base package although you can get 200 hours for an extra $5 a month.

If you’re looking for a more traditional channel guide interface, you’ll find it in the “Guide” tab, but since there are no numbers associated with the channels, you’ll once again find yourself doing a lot of scrolling.

An updated interface is in on the way with key improvements

Sling TV is set to launch a number of changes to its app soon. The streaming service announced a beta app in May 2021. The updated app first became available on select Fire TV devices and features a new home page and a vertical sidebar with a DVR tab. It will be added to more devices throughout 2021, according to a press release.

We got to try the new app with a Fire TV Stick 4K and it’s a clear improvement. The home screen now includes a number of title recommendations based on shows and movies you’ve watched.

Additionally, Sling TV‘s channel guide – which you can find on the app’s sidebar – now lets you surf dozens of channels just like a traditional cable plan. You can also choose to record shows as you navigate through the guide.

You can scroll between tabs like “Favorites” and “Recents” on the top of the guide to find certain channels easier. While there still aren’t numbers associated with channels, you can easily find what you’re looking for with other tabs like “A-Z,” “Sports,” “News,” “Movies,” and more.

Aside from the guide, each channel has “Info” and “Explore” options. The “Info” option lets you see on-demand content and programs set to air on a channel in the future. Meanwhile, the “Explore” option lets you navigate all upcoming shows and movies.

The bottom line

Sling new interface
Sling TV is a great option for cord cutters on a budget.

With plans starting at $35 a month, Sling TV remains one of the best options there is to stream live TV on a budget. New members can even get $25 off their first month, making it an affordable service to test out if you’re on the fence.

Even though the current app’s interface is less than ideal, an upcoming update should alleviate any worries you might have about navigating through your favorite channels.

ESPN+: All your questions answered about ESPN’s streaming service

If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more.

What is ESPN+ 4x3

Monthly Subscription Service (small)Bundle Monthly Subscription (small)

Streaming has largely overtaken cable and satellite as the preferred method to watch movies and TV shows at your leisure. Low price points and the ability to watch on the go are primary reasons for the migration, but one sector has largely resisted any such paradigm shift – professional sports.

If you’re a sports fan, you might be shelling out for traditional cable just to watch your favorite team. Hefty deals between sports leagues and TV networks have prevented services like Netflix from streaming games, but ESPN now has a low-cost service that should satiate many sports fans’ appetites.

What is ESPN+?

ESPN+ is a streaming subscription service that’s considered a complement to existing ESPN content, not technically a separate platform. Think of it as an add-on to the standard ESPN app with live games, exclusive on-demand videos, and access to what was formerly known as ESPN Insider.

Previously, ESPN Insider offered subscribers exclusive written articles for a monthly $5 fee. ESPN decided to add video to the mix and created ESPN+ for a similar price, giving subscribers access to stories, live streaming, and on-demand videos.

What’s included with ESPN+?

What is ESPN+? We break down this network’s streaming subscription
ESPN+ is available to stream on mobile devices, media players, and select smart TVs.

ESPN+ includes a bevy of exclusive video content from live games to on-demand shows and exclusive stories. Unfortunately, the live games come with commercials – just like regular TV.

Subscribers can watch live games from the MLB, NHL, and MLS when their seasons are active; there are no live NBA or NFL games. There’s also PGA golf, UFC, college football, international soccer, and tennis. You can read more details on how to watch Major League Baseball on ESPN+ and other services here.

In addition to games, ESPN+ also features original shows, including in-depth game recaps and analyses hosted by Peyton Manning and Daniel Cormier, and a shorter version of “NFL Primetime.” Documentary programs, like “30 for 30,” as well as full replays of historic NFL games are also available to stream on-demand.

Does ESPN+ offer UFC PPV and UFC Fight Night events?

If you’re a fan of UFC or boxing, ESPN+ often offers exclusive pay-per-view (PPV) matches so you’ll get even more content from the service. The PPV events cost $70 for existing subscribers. ESPN+ also offers a special discounted bundle for new subscribers that includes a one-year membership and one PPV event for $89.98.

The next UFC PPV fight is UFC 262: Oliveira vs. Chandler on May 15. The match will take place in Texas with a sold-out crowd.

In addition to PPV matches, ESPN+ also features access to UFC Fight Night events. Fight Nights are typically included as part of a regular ESPN+ subscription for $6 a month.

What’s not included with ESPN+?

ESPN+ is technically separate from ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNews, so a subscription will not grant you access to live games being broadcast on those networks, including any live games during Monday Night Football and Sunday Night Baseball. That said, some MLB games are still available to be streamed.

Your ESPN+ account is not the same as a cable login with access to the ESPN networks, so there’s no way of getting around it either.

How much does ESPN+ cost?

An ESPN+ subscription will run you $6 a month, or $60 annually. If you do the math, this means that an annual plan will save you about $12 a year compared to paying for 12 months with the month-to-month plan.

If you’re looking for even more streaming content, there’s also a combo package that bundles ESPN+ with Hulu and the Disney Plus streaming service for just $14 a month – a $6 savings each month compared to getting all three services separately. Existing ESPN+ members can even upgrade to the bundle without having to cancel their current subscription. You can upgrade here.

Where can I watch ESPN+?

One of the cool things about ESPN+ is that you can access it through the current ESPN app.

Instead of launching a separate app, all the ESPN+ content is unlocked in the ESPN app once you subscribe. The app is available on virtually every platform you can imagine – phones, tablets, laptops, Roku players, Fire TV products, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, PS4, Xbox One, and Samsung smart TVs.

You can also stream on up to three devices simultaneously with one account.

How do I sign up for ESPN+?

Head over to the ESPN+ website and create an account, or open your existing ESPN account and you’ll be prompted to sign up.

Hulu Basic is one of the most affordable streaming services on the market – here’s what you get for $6 a month

If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more.

Hulu Basic vs Hulu Premium 4x3

Streaming Service (small)

As streaming services surge in interest following a year spent mostly indoors, cable subscriptions and cinema outings are fading away in favor of at-home binge-watching sessions and indoor movie nights. In fact, a survey of American households suggests the average home now has four streaming subscriptions.

Many people are looking for the best value to help build their repertoire of digital platforms. Hulu Basic is one of the cheapest options at just $6 a month ($60 a year). The plan gets you access to an extensive library of shows, movies, and Hulu Originals.

What is Hulu Basic?

Hulu Basic is the company’s simplest and most affordable streaming option. For $6 a month you get access to Hulu’s entire catalog, but you will have to watch some ads as you stream. New subscribers can receive a free 30-day trial when they sign up.

Hulu plays host to a wide variety of content, including comedies like “Letterkenny,” cartoons like “Animaniacs,” dramas like “Fargo,” gems from the ’90s like “Seinfeld,” Hulu originals like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and even Oscar-winning films like “Nomadland.”

You can also use Hulu to keep up with select network shows as they air – or the day after they air – like “Saturday Night Live,” “The Bachelor,” and many more. This is a huge advantage over Netflix where you have to wait up to a year or more for an entire season to show up.

What’s the difference between Hulu Basic and Hulu Premium?

Hulu Basic costs just $6 a month, while Hulu premium is $12 a month. Both offer access to Hulu’s entire on-demand catalog, but Basic has ads while Premium is ad-free.

Students can get Hulu Basic for $2 a month with a verified college enrollment – a savings of $48 a year compared to the regular price.

In exchange for a cheaper monthly rate, Hulu Basic serves you unskippable ads before and during your stream. Hulu will typically air five minutes of ads for 30-minute programs and 10 minutes of ads for hour-long programs. It’s a small price to pay for halving the cost of your subscription, and it’s still less overall ad time than you’d find on cable.

You can also sign up for Hulu Basic as part of a bundle with Disney Plus and ESPN+. This bundle costs $14 a month, which is about $6 cheaper than the price of paying for all three services separately. The plan is $20 a month for Disney Plus, ESPN+, and Hulu Premium.

How can I stream Hulu?

Most smart TVs have Hulu already built in, so all you’ll have to do is launch the app and sign in to start watching. You can explore our guide for the best affordable smart TVs if you want a new display on a budget.

Aside from streaming on your laptop or phone, you can also use a streaming stick or box. These devices connect to your TV, offering access to apps like Hulu. We recommend the Roku Ultra as our top streaming option, but there are tons of other devices across price ranges.

New Sling TV subscribers can now receive $25 off their first month – here’s how to sign up

If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more.

Everything you need to know 4x3
  • Sling TV is one of the cheapest live TV streaming services available.
  • For a limited time, new members can get $25 off and free DVR Plus in their first month.
  • If you prepay for two months at the normal cost, Sling will throw in a free AirTV Mini.

TV (medium)

Dollar for dollar, Sling TV is one of the most affordable live TV streaming services on the market, offering a large selection of channels and on-demand content.

Like most streaming platforms, Sling TV provides various promotional deals and free trial offers on a regular basis. That said, the conditions of these trials and discounts change often. Right now, new subscribers can receive a three-day trial period if they sign up through select devices.

Sling offers other bonuses for new subscribers as well, including an introductory discount or free device bundles. Here’s a full rundown of all the Sling TV offers and deals available right now.

New Sling TV members can get $25 off their first month

For a limited time, Sling is offering a $25 discount on the first month of service for new members. This brings the price down to just $10 for your introductory month. The promotion also includes one month of Sling’s DVR Plus upgrade, which offers 200 hours of storage.

This deal often comes and goes every month or so, as we saw a “$10 off” deal in March, a “$25 off” deal in February, and a “$10 off” deal in January. Sling hasn’t announced when the current “$25 off” deal will expire, so we recommend new subscribers snag the promo now before it’s gone.

TV (medium)

Subscribers can choose between Sling Orange or Sling Blue, and you must provide an email address and credit card when you sign up. After your first month, your subscription will continue under the regular $35 monthly price unless you cancel. If you want to keep the DVR Plus upgrade you need to pay an additional $5 a month.

Does Sling TV offer a free trial?

Sling’s website does not currently include a free trial option, but the site has offered a three-day trial in the past.

People who sign up for Sling through the Sling TV app on select devices, however, can still receive a three-day trial. The app is available on most smart TVs and media players, including Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, and Chromecast.

You can get a free AirTV Mini or antenna if you prepay for two months of Sling

If you don’t want a discounted month or free trial, new members can opt for a free device instead.

You can opt for a free AirTV Mini when you prepay for two months of Sling. The AirTV Mini streaming device typically costs $80 and you can use it to watch Sling and other apps on your TV. The AirTV Mini can be paired with an AirTV 2 and an antenna to add local programming.

Finally, subscribers who just want a simple solution to get local channels can get a free antenna ($45 retail value) when they prepay for two months. Though an antenna by itself won’t integrate with your Sling app, it will let you watch local channels that aren’t included with Sling, like ABC and CBS, through your TV.

Sling offers discounted AirTV 2 and AirTV Anywhere bundles if you pay for three months

In addition to the TiVo Stream 4K and AirTV Mini offer, Sling currently has several other packages that’ll get you discounted devices if you prepay for three months at the regular price.

For $49, you can get an AirTV 2 ($100 retail value) and an antenna ($45 retail value). For $99, you can get an AirTV 2 ($100 retail value), an antenna ($45 retail value), and an AirTV Mini ($80 retail value). For $149, you can receive that same bundle with a second AirTV Mini.

Finally, if you want to record local channels with a built-in DVR, you can opt for a $99 bundle featuring an AirTV Anywhere and an antenna ($245 retail value).

Virtual pay TV struggles

While new streaming services launch left and right, T-Mobile is pulling the plug on TVision, its 5-month-old attempt to retain customers with a $10 per month streaming service, Claire Atkinson reported. Key points:

  • Its demise shows the challenges of the virtual pay TV services model that has struggled to find a profitable business.
  • These services historically haven’t offered much of a deal for would-be cord cutters. TVision was troubled from the start, the programming costing far more than it was charging.
  • In the streaming wars, T-Mobile’s loss is a win for YouTube TV and Philo, which it’s offering its customers instead.

Digital media takes another hit

Just as things are starting to look up with more people getting vaccinated and offices planning for reopening comes news of layoffs at a handful of digital media darlings, Steven Perlberg reported.

This may have surprised people who may have thought the blood-letting was over after last spring when advertisers hit the breaks, leaving many ad-dependent media companies to cut costs.

But the challenges these companies faced aren’t new:

  • Vice Media and HuffPost, along with other VC-backed media companies, have struggled to reach their backers’ expectations. HuffPost was just acquired, a move that’s usually followed by layoffs as merged companies look to cut duplicative costs.
  • Mel Magazine, an arm of Dollar Shave Club, was known for its distinctive men’s lifestyle coverage. But as a brand-backed publication that didn’t have any ad revenue coming in, its financial purpose was unclear.
  • And Medium, which also announced cuts, has changed its approach to content countless times over the years, shifting from an ad- to subscription-driven model. This time it was to scale back its own publications that it started just a few years earlier.

Subscriptions and advertising support many news outlets very well, of course. These companies didn’t have enough of either, or their execution was flawed.

Some digital media companies could get a lifeline by going public through SPACs. But the underlying business challenges they face aren’t likely to go away.

Zimmerman Advertising complaints

Zimmerman Advertising and its founder Jordan Zimmerman bear all the trappings of success, with billions in revenue and clients like McDonald’s and Nissan.

But some employees said they experienced micromanaging, misogyny, and racism at the Omnicom-owned agency, Lindsay Rittenhouse reports.

From her story:

In April, Zimmerman Advertising – an Omnicom-owned ad agency in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, known for its work with clients like McDonald’s – laid off a batch of employees in the pandemic. That day, the founder and chairman Jordan Zimmerman addressed the remaining staff on a call.

Three people on the call said Zimmerman told employees that, while they were spared, they would need to work “two and a half times harder” or he would replace them with the laid-off employees who had “begged” for their jobs.

Fast-forward to this March, when some employees accused the agency of pressuring them to go back to the office, regardless of whether they had been vaccinated or had high-risk family members. In some cases, employees said management threatened layoffs if they didn’t return.

What is Crunchyroll? Everything you need to know about the popular anime streaming service

Crunchyroll app on mobile phone
Crunchyroll is a streaming platform focused explicitly on original and simulcasted licensed Anime shows and movies.

  • Crunchyroll is an anime streaming service that offers over 1,000 titles and 30,000 episodes of anime.
  • Crunchyroll is free with ads, but users can upgrade to one of three ad-free membership tiers through the premium subscription service.
  • Crunchyroll is available across devices and platforms, including iOS, Android, Roku, PlayStation 4, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, and more. 
  • Visit Business Insider’s Tech Reference library for more stories.

Susan J. Napier’s 2016 book, “Anime from Akira to Howl’s Moving Castle,” reports that anime makes up around 60% of the world’s animated television series. Started in 2006 by students at the University of California, Berkeley, Crunchyroll is an answer to that mountain of content and the fans who demand it. 

With 3 million subscribers and services in over 200 countries and territories, Crunchyroll has become one of the world’s most popular anime brands. The Netflix-esque streaming service offers a vast library of TV anime, manga, and other original content featuring popular titles like “Lupin the Third,” “Attack on Titan,” and “The God of High School.” 

Acquired by WarnerMedia in 2018, the company announced in December 2020 the sale of Crunchyroll to Sony, which owns the platform’s anime competitor Funimation. There has been no update about how the merger will affect the two sites, so for now, Crunchyroll remains the anime powerhouse fans have come to know and love. 

Here’s everything else you need to know about Crunchyroll. 

What is Crunchyroll?

Just two years after launching as a paid for-profit video upload and streaming site primarily focused on East Asian media in 2006, the platform moved away from hosting licensed material, including titles illegally uploaded by users. With a cash infusion in 2008, Crunchyroll took the first steps towards becoming the legal distribution platform, entering into the home release and DVD markets, as well as the digital Manga world. 

Crunchyroll_Image1
The service currently has three million subscribers and operates in over 200 countries and territories.

Over a decade later, Crunchyroll has become a distributor and publisher and production and licensing company with a strict focus on the anime market. The service caters to its specific audience of anime lovers by offering shows and movies, games, live-action dramas, and Japanese comics (or manga). Presently, Crunchyroll claims it boasts 1,000 titles and 30,000 episodes of anime content. The company also offers a variety of in-person events, including the Crunchyroll Expo and Crunchyroll Anime Awards. 

In addition to distributing anime from Japanese companies, the site also offers a slate of exclusive programs through Crunchyroll Originals. Launched last year and produced out of Crunchyroll Studios, the company has used its original programming to distinguish itself from competitors by providing content unique to its site instead of relying solely on licensed content. Crunchyroll Originals include:

  • “Noblesse”
  • “FreakAngels” 
  • “Onyx Equinox”
  • “High Guardian Spice” 
  • “Meiji Gekken: Swords & Guns” 
  • “In/Spectre” 
  • “The God of High School”
  • “Tower of God”

How does Crunchyroll work? 

Crunchyroll gives viewers various ways to watch their favorite anime titles. Users can opt to stream on their computers or access it on mobile apps for iOS, Android, and Windows phones. But Crunchyroll is also available on numerous other streaming devices and even gaming platforms, including Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Playstation 3, 4, and Vita, Roku, Xbox One and 360, and Wii U. 

As a bonus, if you begin viewing on a platform like a computer, you can seamlessly switch to another device with ease with no interruptions as long as you’re logged into your account. 

Crunchyroll_Image3
There are over 30 thousand episodes with numerous titles for offline viewing.

Crunchyroll viewers can sign up for the free account or one of its tiered membership options. With a free profile, you can stream content one week after the broadcast in Japan with ads. Crunchyroll simulcasts the content the same day for premium users – and only an hour after airing in Japan. 

Both free and paid accounts have access to “subbed” and “dubbed” content. When users stream content that originally airs in Japan, subtitles will be available in English and other languages. Those who would prefer to watch – instead of reading – can select an anime’s “dubbed” version in their language. In English dubs, the Japanese voice actor has been replaced by an English voice actor.  

How much does Crunchyroll cost?

Free users only need their basic info to create an account and begin watching. But the anime streaming service also has three paid membership options for those looking for additional benefits and perks. New premium subscribers get a 14-day trial before being billed monthly. 

Crunchyroll_Image2
Each membership level offers different benefits.

Fan  

At the beginner level of the premium membership ladder, “Fan” subscribers pay $7.99 a month and get perks like same-day simulcast viewing, ad-free watching, and access to Crunchyroll’s digital library of manga.

Mega Fan 

At $9.99 a month, Mega Fans get everything mentioned above in addition to the ability to stream on multiple devices, offline viewing, primary access to Crunchyroll Expo, and discounted prices on merchandise in the Crunchyroll store.

Ultimate Fan

The most expensive and inclusive tier, the $14.99 a month Ultimate Fan subscription, has the majority of benefits from previous levels and the bonuses of a yearly swag bag and a limited-edition figurine.

FuboTV surges 20% after sports streaming service raises preliminary Q4 revenue guidance

FuboTV
  • FUBO shares are up over 20% on Tuesday after the company raised preliminary revenue and subscriber guidance.
  • Analysts at Needham raised their price target for FUBO to $60/share, citing the potential for a new sports gambling revenue stream within 12 months.
  • Over 80 million shares of FUBO were released from a lock-up on Dec. 30th. According to analyst Laura Martin, this, along with the improved revenue figures and business outlook, signals the bottom for the once struggling FuboTV, per SeekingAlpha.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

After a rocky start to the year on Monday, FuboTV (NYSE: FUBO) announced fourth quarter revenue and subscriber guidance Tuesday morning, and shares are surging.

Previously, the “sports-first” video-streaming platform expected revenue in the last quarter of 2020 to be between $80 million-$85 million. Tuesday’s revised figures bring that number to between $94 million-$98 million, representing a 77%-84% year-over-year increase in revenue.

Paid subscriber growth also skyrocketed some 72% year-over-year. The company expects to boast over 545,000 paid subscribers in their year-end filings. That’s an increase of more than 35,000 over their prior guidance of 500,000-510,000 subscribers.

In a press release, CEO David Gandler touched on Fubo’s 2021 goals saying the company would be “laser-focused on executing our growth strategies, which include continuing to grow advertising revenues, working to implement sports wagering into our product and further establishing FuboTV as a leader in sports and live streaming.”

This comes two weeks after Needham’s equity research team maintained its buy rating and doubled its price target for the rising sports streaming service from $30 to $60 per share.

Per SeekingAlpha, Needham noted the subscriber growth beat, a live sports button on Hisense’s VIDAA TVs sold at Walmart, a new gambling revenue stream within the year, along with several strong CTV industry consumer, revenue, and valuation fundamental upside drivers as their reasoning behind the bullishness.

Needham analyst Laura Martin also argued the bottom is in on FUBO after a tough 2020 due to a December 31 lockup expiration, which released 88mm shares into the open market.

Martin said in a statement, “we believe FUBO’s recent share price weakness was caused by an enormous supply/demand imbalance as 88mm shares became un-locked-up on Dec 30th, vs. less than 20mm shares in the float, and 8mm shares/day of avg trading volume.”

According to Martin, with supply-demand imbalance resolved and with new revenue figures, the outlook for Fubo is bullish.

FUBO trades around $30 per share and boasts a $2 billion market cap.
