Your Name Available to Stream for FREE on Amazon Prime UK

It seems like christmas has come early; as those still wanting to watch Makoto Shinkai’s animated film Your Name, otherwise known as Kimi no Na wa, will be excited to know that the film is available to stream on Amazon Instant Video and is available to stream ‘for FREE’ for Amazon Prime members.

That’s not the only good news; as both English and Japanese versions of the film are available to stream (for free) for Amazon Prime Members; which is a vast difference to STUDIOCANAL’S offering of The Boy and The Beast which was only available in Japanese with English subtitles.

Those wanting to own a physical copy of the film (and who would’nt?) will also be interested to know that Your Name is available on to DVD, Blu-Ray, Steelbook Combo Pack and Deluxe Edition Blu-Ray; each of which are available to purchase from different retailers within the UK.

Synopsis: Mitsuha and Taki are total strangers living completely different lives. But when Mitsuha makes a wish to leave her mountain town for the bustling city of Tokyo, they become connected in a bizarre way. She dreams she is a boy living in Tokyo while Taki dreams he is a girl from a rural town he’s never visited.

What does their newfound connection mean? And how will it bring them together? Find out in the latest film from the acclaimed auteur Makoto Shinkai.

Your Name is now available to stream on Amazon Instant Video and Amazon Prime Members can watch the film for FREE as part of their subscription; alternatively the film is available on DVD, Blu-Ray, Steelbook Combo Pack and Deluxe Edition Blu-Ray – all of which feature both an English Dub as well as Japanese with English Subtitles.

    Requiring Amazon Prime is not “free”.

      You can still have an Amazon Prime account and be required to pay for streaming content; hence why the word ‘free’ was included in the article. Plus some people see the streaming service as a ‘freebie’ rather than content they pay for.
