Following on from Animax UK’s recent price decrease (from £5.99 to £4.99) the video-on-demand anime subscription service is now offering customers a six-month subscription based bundle, whereby if you commit to stay with Animax for six month’s you’ll only pay £3.99 a month as opposed to £4.99.

Basically upon registering on the website and at the order checkout screen enter the unique “ANIMAX6” code, this will then tie you to a six month contract with Animax UK, but at the same time it means you’ll only pay £3.99 as opposed to the usual £4.99. This also means that not only are you getting it cheaper, but you are only paying for 5 months (but you end up getting 6 months worth of anime).

With this new offer now in place will you be joining Animax UK? If not, why not? Either way let us know. In meantime Animax UK is compatible with various mobile devices, computers and even has a dedicated app for the PS3.
