Boomerang, the cable TV channel that airs classic cartoon shows, recently launched a video on-demand subscription service. With Boomerang you will be able to access a huge library of classic cartoons from places such as Turner and Warner Bros. and shows including “Looney Tunes” and some Hanna-Barbera along with the MGM library. Now they are brining their content to the VRV service giving you access to more classic cartoons through VRV.
This move helps fill a gap left by Funimation leaving VRV. Soon you will no longer be able to access Funimation content through VRV. Funimation also announced plans to end their content deals with Crunchyroll. Now if you want to watch their shows and movies you will need to subscribe the Funimation streaming services.
To replace the lost content, VRV announced that they have teamed up with HIDIVE to add 500+ anime shows and movies to their lineup.
“We are incredibly proud to announce our newest partner: HIDIVE, a dynamic new member of the anime streaming world. Anime favorites from HIDIVE, like Made in Abyss, Food Wars, Elfien Lied, Bloom Into You, and Highschool of the Dead, will be available on VRV in just a couple weeks with their full catalog of 500+ titles soon to follow. One reason you’ve told us that you *love* VRV is because we have anime both subbed AND dubbed. With HIDIVE’s impressive collection of subs, dubs and simulcasts and Crunchyroll’s unparalleled Japanese-language library, we’re confident that you’ll agree that our anime selection is still the best around.”
Some of the HIDIVE is now live, you can find the full listing here.
