So is the free trial you sign up for when you first visit crunchyroll a free trial for it's service or crunchyroll premium? I'm just really confused, like, is crunchyroll free to use as long as you don't sign up for premium? Because most of the anime I want to watch are quite old and all/most of the episodes should already be on, so I don't really need the premium features as I don't need the 1 hour after japan thing and I can tolerate the ads. The only thing I can think of is that with the 'unlimited' service thing advertised with premium some of the more popular anime are locked or something?

In certain cases, like Canada, there is (the older content you want) that only premium members can see. For the most part, other than that, it doesn't matter if you are premium or not for catalog titles, so long as they are available in your region at all.

Premium additionally gives you:

Apparently one or more devices may not support viewing with ads? Not sure which ones those are though, or if that changed.

higher resolution 720/1080 where available, A couple show are older so those don't have this anyway.

Some discounts, and free shipping (in the US only) on eligible items in the CR store.

from what i gather, free shipping is only for premium+, not regular premium.
(some items can be found for significantly less elsewhere though - free shipping or not)
