When AT&T sold the subscription anime streaming service Crunchyroll to American anime distributor Funimation for nearly $1.2 billion in 2020, the merger promised to bring together the separate services into a single subscription.

That pledge has now come to fruition: the companies are now in the process of moving Funimation’s content to Crunchyroll, which will also become the company’s single, global brand for anime. Beginning Tuesday, more than 40,000 sub and dub episodes are now available on Crunchyroll, with the company saying more episodes will hit the service daily over the next few weeks.
