I have recently started watching Japanese anime as a way to further study Japanese. Leading a busy life I did not think I had access to this until an app all of a sudden popped up on my smart TV. Having a quick look it streams anime direct to my TV. I live in Australia and can see this stuff now before I go to bed to watch and listen to shows.

I am just wondering if anyone else has an app like this or if the app exists on televisions around the world and what others do to watch anime as language lessons.

In the USA we have Crunchyroll. It has a large library and also offers movies and dramas. My only complaint is that you can't turn off the subtitles AFAIK.

Yes same situation here. I guess in each country it is different. Some shows do not have subtitles.

I am loving it because I can totally understand some sentences and see the subtitles and it is not a direct translation, it is an interpretation where the written subtitles in English are totally different to what was said in Japanese. That is why people hate subtitles  I guess as they are not direct. It can still be helpful though.

I don't know how long this will be available but it is a fantastic service for Japanese learners: https://animelon.com/
