Funimation App Shuts Down on April 2 as Its Accounts Merge With Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that the Funimation app will shut down on April 2, as part of the ongoing content and service consolidation from Funimation to Crunchyroll after the companies merged. Each Funimation subscriber can migrate their account to Crunchyroll (including their watch history and queue), or merge their Funimation account with a pre-existing Crunchyroll account (if the two accounts are tied to the same email address).

Crunchyroll will not support Funimation‘s digital copy content. Funimation provided digital copies as part of some home video DVD or Blu-ray Disc purchases.
