Several Ultraman shows and movies including Ultraseven, Ultraman Geed, and more will be available through Shout! Factory beginning in November.
Throughout the year, great strides have been made in terms of making tokusatsu shows more available in the west through the power of streaming platforms. In November, the library of available tokusatsu shows will increase tenfold as Shout! Factory adds several Ultraman titles to their streaming capacity through a deal with Mill Creek Entertainment and Indigo Entertainment.
Ultraman, the tokusatsu giant hero who has fought to protect Japan since the 1960s, will see a wide array of series brought into the western market for viewers. Shows will range from the original Ultraman and Ultraseven to newer seasons such as Ultraman Geed. Fans can look forward to seeing the two movies Ultraman Orb The Movie: Let Me Borrow the Power of Bonds! and Ultraman Geed The Movie: Connect the Wishes! as well.
All Ultraman content will be accessible through Shout! Factory’s streaming service, which taps into programs and devices like Roku, Amazon Fire/Prime, Tubi, and Apple TV.
