    Streaming services have become the rage over the last decade. It all started with Netflix in 2013 when they debuted House of Cards, their first original series. Until then, Amazon Prime and Netflix spent most of their time making older television shows and movies available to viewers who wanted on-demand entertainment. Over the years, more and more streaming services have made themselves known. During the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a 14% increase in streaming during the second quarter of 2022 compared to the same quarter in 2021. Streaming represented a third of all television time during the year 2022.

    But as people have gone back to work and fewer workers are stuck at home day after day, the demand for streaming services has started to decrease. And though there are still many fans of anime, subscriptions for services such as Funimation may be less popular than the big dogs; Prime, Netflix, Disney+, etc. For this reason, some subscribers may want to know how to cancel their Funimation subscription.

    How Do I Cancel My Funimation Subscription?

    It’s estimated that more than one-third of the global population, equivalent to 2.88 billion people, watch anime. Anime represents a type of art made for the screen that uses a combination of hand-drawn and computer-generated animation originating from Japan. Now, anime is the third-most in-demand subgenre globally, boasting a 5.5% demand share. 

    And though the adult impression of anime is relatively positive, Funimation is not the only place that viewers can enjoy this type of entertainment. A wide variety of anime programs are available on Netflix, and just as much anime is available on Prime. Since most households tend to subscribe to these two primary streaming services, an additional subscription to Funimation may no longer be worth the separate cost. Plus, Funimation offers free access to many of its programs.

    Viewers can subscribe to one of two membership options to access all Funimation anime programs.

    – Ad-free access to the entire Funimation library when and where available – Subtitles (subs) and dubbing (dubs) – Two simultaneous streams– Ad-free access to the entire Funimation library when and where available – Subtitles (subs) and dubbing (dubs) – Two simultaneous streams

    Adding the cost of a Premium Funimation plan at $9.99 per month ($119.88 annually). Add this to the monthly cost of Netflix at $6.99 for a basic plan with ads and Amazon Prime at $14.99 per month; you can suddenly be paying over $300 per year. If you aren’t watching as much streamed content as you used to, or if you are also paying for satellite television, these costs might start to seem excessive. As a result, canceling your Funimation membership might seem like the right approach. Thankfully, Funimation has a relatively straightforward process for cancellation.
