It was on July 3, within the framework of FunimationCon 2020, when the US distributor specializing in anime content made its expansion to the Latin American market official in the fall of this year, starting with Mexico and Brazil. Finally Funimation It launched its website in advance in both nations this Wednesday, November 18.
It is important to note that Funimation – owned by Sony – had previously announced that its platform would be available until December, therefore, what we find is a kind of advanced beta of all the content and services that it will offer to its subscribers in the days, weeks and months to come. The service presented some flaws yesterday and the titles are gradually being incorporated into the catalog.
That being said, is it worth subscribing? Here we tell you everything you need to know about the arrival of Funimation in Mexico.
To register as a user of Funimation México, you must visit the page www.funimation.com/es-mx. There you will have two options: you can create one free account or start the procedures to become a user Premium Plus (which includes a free 14-day trial).
In the case of the free account, you only have to enter an email and a password. This version will give you limited, ad-supported access to select titles within Funimation’s current catalog.
If you want to become a Premium Plus subscriber, in addition to your email and password, you must enter a payment method. This option gives you access to the complete Funimation Mexico catalog without ads and with the option for up to 5 simultaneous transmissions. As with other streaming services, you can request to cancel your subscription within 14 days of your free trial if you are still not convinced.
Subscriptions and payment methods
Funimation Premium Plus plans have the following prices for Mexico:
Monthly subscription: $ 99 pesos.Annual subscription: $ 990 pesos.
The system offers you a monthly subscription by default, but once you have completed your registration you can change it to an annual subscription in your account settings if you wish.
Payments can be made via PayPal or with credit and debit cards Visa, Mastercard and American Express. The company anticipated that more payment options will eventually be implemented.
You can pay with credit and debit cards PayPal, Visa, Mastercard and American Express, soon we will offer more options as the apps come out.

And the applications?
As it had already been advanced, Funimation will only be available through its website during this initial launch phase. This is the reason why if they try to download the Funimation application from the USA, the system indicates that it is not available for our country.
There is still no date set for the release of the applications on electronic devices, but we will keep you informed on the Cine PREMIERE site and social networks.
We launch for the web! We still do not have a date for the apps, but as soon as we can confirm it we will announce it through our networks 😉

When are the simulcasts for?
Funimation has not yet ruled on how long we will be able to enjoy massive simultaneous transmissions with Japan of those titles for which they have exclusive licenses for the American continent. Previously, the company had confirmed that it will have a simulcast (and even a simuldub) for the Attack on Titan final season, which will premiere on December 7; Likewise, the platform had announced that it would incorporate series from the current fall 2020 season into its catalog shortly after its launch in Mexico, although no exact date was given.
As we get closer to the winter season of 2021, we will see that other titles are confirmed to be seen the same day of their premiere on Japanese television.
Excited? Are you planning to subscribe or what have you thought of the platform so far?
