Viewster To End Omakase Subscription Box Service

Date: Monday 21st March 2016 [16:40] | Posted By: Joe

We've covered on-line streaming service Viewster and their Omakase Subscription merchandise box service before.

Last week Viewster announced that the Hatsune Miku Box will be the last. Viewster will continue to offer streaming anime, and it seems that this decision has not impacted their streaming service. Any subscribers to the service will get 2 months hi-definiton streaming, then the service will not renew the regular credit card charge. Viewster will still be offering anime streaming services, but will no longer be offering a premium merchandise box.

Details as follows:

The End of OMAKASE

Dear OMAKASE subscribers,

Last year, we launched OMAKASE to transform the way people experience the lifestyle of anime, manga, and Japanese video games. Starting with Kill la Kill, then Naruto Shippuden, and finally through Hatsune Miku, OMAKASE presented a curated experience for fans in this space like no other. Today, though, we are extremely sad to inform you that we will be discontinuing the OMAKASE subscription service, effective as of March 24th.

We are proud of the dynamic and completely original celebration of Hatsune Miku that we have created, which will start shipping on March 25, 2016 as originally planned. This will be the final box that OMAKASE sends out under our subscription. We want to make it clear that everyone who subscribed will receive proper customer support, and that as of March 24, 2016 the credit cards of our customers will not be charged.

The positive feedback we have received leading up to and since the launch of OMAKASE has been amazing. Each event, livestream, tweet, post, and other kind interaction with the fans meant the world to us, and we are grateful for all the all the support we received.

Current OMAKASE subscribers will continue to have access to all their digital content as part of their subscription up until their expiration date. Viewster is, and continues to be, a major player in video streaming across the United States, Europe, and the rest of the world, streaming a broad catalog of video titles from anime to horror to action and more. Keep your eyes out for what Viewster does next.
