HiDive, a subscription-based anime streaming service, has declared that it will cease operations on December 14, 2023. Fans were caught off guard by this revelation, which left them perplexed because the official statement was not very clear. The areas in which the services would be discontinued are not specified.


You, my buddy, don’t need to worry, though, because we can still share the knowledge we have even though we are unable to legally make anime available to you. The regions where hidive will be unavailable are shown below.

All that is said in HiDive’s official release is that some areas outside North America will no longer be able to access the platform’s services. The particular regions that they are in have not been specified. HiDive’s services will only be accessible in the following areas:


  1. Americas
  2. United Kingdom
  3. Canada
  4. Australia
  5. Ireland
 

Formerly, the areas included the following: Germany, Italy, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, Central America, South America, and North and Central America. HiDive will cease operations in each of these regions on December 14. This has led to the exclusion of the majority of North American, South American, and European areas.

Some popular anime shows exclusive to HiDive

Although there are several alternative options, such as Netflix, Hulu, and Crunchyroll, HiDive is significantly less expensive. The majority of these shows are only available on HiDive. Oshi no Ko, Call of the Night, The Eminence in Shadow, Bloom into You, Made in Abyss, Ragna Crimson, The Dangers in My Heart, and many more are some of these programs.

 

Since the second season of The Eminence in Shadow is currently running, fans of Oshi no Ko and Eminence in Shadow are particularly concerned about the future of their beloved programs.


What could be the reason behind HiDive’s decision? 

 

Anime licensing is usually country-based or region-specific. Various streaming services purchase the rights to release a specific anime title in a given area. This change may have been motivated, in part, by the decline in subscriptions in non-English-speaking regions.


Regardless of the cause, it has drawn several unfavorable responses from anime enthusiasts who support legal anime viewing. The formal announcement’s dearth of information is adding gasoline to the fire.


Even yet, it only mentioned a few potential future developments. The streaming service will make an effort to use regional platforms to provide anime in the impacted areas. It should be remembered that, outside of Japan, there are very few local anime-focused platforms. The future appears to be rather dismal in this regard.



Conclusion 

 

This is all the information we currently have on the closure. If there are any updates on this fiasco, we’ll keep you informed. In the meantime, you might want to subscribe to the Spiel Anime Newsletter. It releases every two weeks and features everything anime. Furthermore, the newsletter is open to all sophisticated anime enthusiasts, unlike HiDive.
