A combination of live-action and anime are now available!
HIDIVE have been teasing a fair amount of new catalogue titles as well as English dub additions for their service. Unfortunately a fair amount have been available solely for the United States and Canada (examples include Beyond the Boundary -I’ll Be Here-, Space Runaway Ideon, and Squid Girl) but the good news is that these lot listed below are all available for the United Kingdom and Ireland. Some of them may be exclusive to Premium members only so just be aware of that.
Just to recap, HIDIVE is the latest legal streaming service for the English territories by offering both anime and live-action Japanese content in SD & HD formats as well as English dubs (when available) and also the uncensored home video masters (when available). The service is available for free with ad support or under their Premium membership for $3.99 per month with an extra $1 more for 1080p support. Apps including PlayStation 4 support are coming soon.
