DAISUKI Streaming Service To Close This October

The online videon-on-demand simulcast streaming service DAISUKI have announced that from the 31st October 2017 their online service, which is currently available to access through the official website and Mobile app, will be terminated.

As mentioned in the announcement (seen here) Daisuki will continue to operate as normal until 31st October; but leading up to the closure certain services and features will be removed – such as registering for the website or downloading the mobile application. It’s also currently unclear if simulcast titles, such as Dragon Ball Super, will continue to receive new episodes in the weeks/months leading up to the closure; but judging from the schedule listed below new episodes will continue to be shown each week.

Schedule Leading Up to the Closure of DAISUKI:

July 1, 2017 – 12:00 a.m – New registration for DAISUKI’s premium membership service was closed.

August 31, 2017 – 11:00 a.m – Sale of rentable content will be stopped.

September 29, 2017 – 4:00 p.m – DAISUKI NEXT will end all service.

October 2, 2017 – 11:00 a.m – The DAISUKI app (iOS/Android) will no longer be available for download.

October 31, 2017 – 11:00 a.m – All DAISUKI services (excluding free Dragon Ball Super simulcasting) will be terminated.

December 15, 2017 – 6:00 p.m – All DAISUKI social networking service accounts (Twitter, Facebook) and customer support will be closed.

Those wishing to continue their ‘online viewing experience’ will have to watch the shows on other services; such as Crunchyroll. DAISUKI, to some, may have been an unknown simulcast provider but for me it was one that I used often and it is disappointing to see it go.
