Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offers Xbox and Windows PC players plenty of benefits for its subscription price, and that isn’t just limited to a game library. Starting on Friday, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can get two free months’ worth of a subscription to Funimation Premium Plus, the highest tier of the company’s anime streaming service.

Funimation Premium Plus gives anime fans access to Funimation’s entire streaming library, including English dubs and simulcast shows. At the moment, the service offers series like Naruto, Black Clover, and My Hero Academia that Premium Plus members can stream ad-free. The Game Pass Ultimate offer includes 60 free days of a Premium Plus subscription, but it is available only to new Funimation subscribers.

The free offer comes by way of Game Pass Ultimate Perks, which give players bonuses on top of the games they already get from the program. The perks include promotions like a few months of Discord Nitro for free, as well as some in-game bonuses, like free DLC or special armor and cosmetics.

Unfortunately, it seems that this perk can only be redeemed from an Xbox One console or the Xbox mobile app. PC subscribers can normally get Game Pass Ultimate perks through the official Windows 10 Xbox app, but as of this writing, the Funimation offer isn’t available in the PC app. The promotion is available from Sept. 25 until Oct. 24.
