AMC Networks has announced the acquisition of Sentai Holdings LLC, which includes Sentai Filmworks and the HIDIVE streaming service. The interim CEO of AMC Networks, Matt Blank stated:

 "This acquisition builds on AMC Networks' already strong IP and franchises, and furthers our targeted streaming strategy of super-serving passionate audiences with content depth, curation and community. With the addition of Sentai, we see an even greater opportunity to build on AMC Networks' position as the global leader in targeted streaming, as we continue to grow a sustainable and long-term profitable streaming business that will be transformational for our company."

Sentai Filmworks often work in collaboration with MVM Entertainment in the UK, and according to MVM owner Tony Allen, AMC have already been in touch to indicate that it will be "business as usual" going forward, so there will be no interruption for the British anime distributor.
