FUNimation to Offer 104 Day Trial for New Subscribers as part of PlayStation’s Play at Home Event in March

As part of PlayStation’s Play at Home event, a celebratory event that starts next month and sees Sony offer Ratchet & Clank (PS4) for free to PlayStation users in the wake of lockdown rules, FUNimation will offer a 104 Day Free Trial to their streaming platform for new subscribers.

Specific details on this promotion have not been provided, but one would assume that it is only eligible for new subscribers signing up on the PlayStation App from the 25th March 2021. Those who sign-up for a free trial during this promotional window will be given the standard 14 day trial and then it will be upgraded with an additional 90 days worth of free subscription. This means newcomers will receive more than three months worth of free anime streaming and the premium benefits that go along with it.

Our friends at Funimation (a joint venture of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Aniplex of Japan) are kicking in a very special offer: extended access for new subscribers to Funimation or Wakanim in the countries they are available **. Funimation is an anime-focused subscription service and Wakanim is  Funimation’s European division. While there will be additional details to follow, this offer is only available to our community who sign up for and download the Funimation (in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand) or Wakanim apps (in most of Western and Northern Europe) starting on March 25 for a limited time.

**FUNIMATION and WAKANIM – On top of the standard 14-day  trial, new users can get an additional 90 days . Unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the  period, your subscription will automatically roll into a paid-for, ongoing subscription with a recurring monthly fee. Age restrictions apply. More information to follow.

The “Play at Home” Event was also held last year on the PlayStation platform and saw Journey and Uncharted Collection offered to all PlayStation Users. The incentive was to offer something new for people to play while they stayed at home as a result of lockdowns across the globe. This year Sony will offer Ratchet & Clank (PS4) to all PlayStation users as well as offer an extended free trial to FUNimation for new customers. Additional details relating to the Play at Home event are expected to be shared in the coming weeks.
