Crunchyroll, the Sony-owned anime streaming service, is now available in the UK, US, Canada and Sweden via Prime Video Channels.
The Channels feature lets Prime Video customers access content from third-party streaming services without needing an additional app. Subscriptions to the chosen service are charged in addition to the base cost of Prime Video.
A new global agreement between the two firms will see Prime Video extend the availability of Crunchyroll to more territories throughout 2024.

In addition, a 24/7 Crunchyroll linear channel is also available on Amazon Freevee.
