Streaming service HIDIVE have revealed some new news over the past few days that will excite fans and newcomers alike.
First up, they have now added a new subscription model for the users who prefer to pay yearly rather than monthly. The annual yearly subscription option is $47.88 (around £36) per year which is 20% off the monthly cost option. The monthly option of $4.99 is still available, replacing the previous $3.99 version but adds the extras (multiple users, 1080p HD streaming) that would have totalled $6.99 per month.
Next up, another device is now supporting HIDIVE with Amazon Fire TV. You can now download the app on those devices to watch anime or live-action Japanese titles through that method if you wish. The Amazon Fire TV device joins the iOS, Android, Apple TV and Roku devices currently supported. Console apps and other devices are still in the works with no news for the time being.
And last but not least the 1984 anime series of Glass Mask will be streaming exclusively to HIDIVE for the following regions; US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Central and South America. The series will begin streaming starting 28th May 2018 at 12pm Central Daylight Time. The streaming service described the anime’s story as follows:
