Users from different Latin American countries who are subscribers to the anime streaming service HIDE from distributor Sentai Film Works, reported that they received an email informing them that the service will no longer be available in Latin America as of May 31. The message in question reads:

  • Dear Subscriber: We're making changes to our service that mean HIDIVE will be unavailable in your country or region. Subscriptions in the affected countries and regions will receive a refund of the value of their paid subscription. If the subscription is in a trial period, this account will be closed. Access to our services also ends on May 31, 2022. Thank you for your patronage and understanding.

It should be noted that the platform in question, HIDIVE, hasn't listed a press release officially reporting on this decision, although it's probably only a matter of time considering all the screenshots shared by fans contain the same message and sender.

At the moment, HIDE offers anime content with subtitles in English and Spanish (usually the first) and some synchronization. Among the most notable and recent licensed series is the franchise of Crafted in the Abyss; the original anime from WIT studio, Onipane!; the franchise of Machikado Mazoku (The Demon Girl Next Door); the anime Yuusha, Yamemasu (I quit heroing); the anime Shokei Shoujo no virgin street (The executioner and his way of life); the anime paripi koumei (Ya boy Kongming!); the third season of Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san (Teasing from Master Takagi-san); the anime Megami-ryou no Ryoubo-kun; the anime Kaifuku Jutsushi without Yarinaoshi; among many others.
