This morning, Nikkei Asia reveals to us that Sony is in the final negotiations regarding the acquisition of Crunchyroll, a service of streaming American focused on productions anime and manga. This transaction is estimated at 100 billion yen, or nearly 1.3 billion dollars in our currency.
Also according to Nikkei Asia, Sony would have obtained the exclusive rights to buy Crunchyroll. For the giant of the video game and entertainment industry, this is none other than another part of its long-term strategy. Recall that in 2017, Sony had acquired the distributor ofanime Funimation, sweeping up no less than a million subscribers.
With the acquisition of Crunchyroll , Sony would be in an excellent position to compete with services like Hulu and Netflix with a much more targeted product. Crunchyroll has more than 70 million subscribers, of which 3 million pay monthly to enjoy the service. And who knows, maybe PlayStation Plus subscribers could also take advantage of this new service with maybe an exclusive discount.
