AMC Networks has relaunched its anime-centric streaming service HIDIVE with a new user interface and additional features, the company announced this week.

The updated website and streaming video apps are rolling out to subscribers in the United States, Canada and certain other international territories, starting on Monday.

The new website and apps include an enhanced search feature that makes finding shows and other content even easier, along with curated user and playback options. A new watch list feature will also launch, so subscribers can keep tabs on the shows they are watching or want to watch in the future.

“It’s an exciting day for HIDIVE, as we roll out our new website and apps, marrying our high-quality and popular anime content with the best possible streaming experience,” John Ledford, the President of HIDIVE, said in a statement. “With a multitude of upgrades and new features across the service, subscribers can not only easily find and quickly watch the movies and series they want, but also download and take their favorite anime with them – whenever and wherever they want.”

The new user experience will launch on the HIDIVE website first, then on HIDIVE apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV (Google TV) and Apple iPhones and iPads.

HIDIVE costs $5 per month or $48 per year in the United States, with similar pricing in other countries. Both plans include a 7-day free trial.
