Funimation streaming service review

I’ve been a Funimation.com member for 2 years now. Their streaming started out ok. They hosted their videos from Hulu. I hate Hulu because of commercials and poor video quality. Funimation started hosting their own videos and that’s where the trouble started. They advertise SD, 720 and 1080 streaming. I’ve routinely experience trouble streaming at 1080 and there’s times video will constantly be interrupted at SD.

My current internet speed is 62 Mbps which should be more than sufficient for HD streaming. I tried to watch Shimoneta ep. 6 at 1080 but playback was constantly interrupted. This was an ethernet connection. I had to watch on SD with a few interruptions due to buffering.

Funimation’s streaming is terrible. I’m also paying $8.00/month for this. Crunchyroll doesn’t have these problems. I watch their videos at 1080 without problems most of the time.
