HIDIVE announces strategic partnership with My Anime List

Written by Ross Locksley on 26 Sep 2019



All the big moves are with streaming companies at the moment as streaming service HIDIVE announces a strategic partnership with the popular My Anime List website in a bid to propogate its available shows to fans.

The move looks to leverage MAL's reach within fandom to deliver HIDIVE's content to an established fanbase, and in return MAL can offer shows directly to their users.

Details of exactly what to expect were announced by John Ledford, CEO and founder of HIDIVE:

"By teaming strategically with MyAnimeList, we can couple instant delivery of exciting anime content via Internet streaming with highly relevant, peer-generated ratings, reviews and other data about that programming and much more. We are pleased to embark on this collaboration that is intended to promote deeper exploration by anime fans and other viewers of the near limitless capacity for delight and diversity offered by Japan’s anime creators.”

Atsushi Mizoguchi, CEO of MyAnimeList added:

“Our rating information provides a fair and objective view of each anime and manga title which has been generated through the collective effort of our important members. If our rating scores can help guide HIDIVE users to discover new titles from many anime, we are very pleased. We hope many HIDIVE users who see these ratings will visit MAL, then organize their viewing history and enjoy discussing episodes to share their valuable impressions with our community.”

MAL's ratings system will is now available on HIDIVE, the embedded player for MAL users should be ready "shortly".
