Amazon Shuts Down Anime Strike Streaming Subscription Service
Anime programs are now available without a separate subscription.
Less than a year after launching Anime Strike, a branded subscription streaming video on demand service, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) has shut down the service, reports Kotaku. Amazon launched Anime Strike last January to Amazon Prime members in the U.S. for $4.99 a month, following a seven-day free trial. The ad-free subscription offered more than 1,000 episodes of popular anime series from Japan, as well as exclusives, action series, top movies and dubbed series, including Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga, The Great Passage, Chiís Sweet Adventure and Parasyte.
