I don't know if it's a coincidence, but the day the FCC gets rid of Net Neutrality, Crunchyroll has started buffering to the point of being unwatchable (every 5 to 20 seconds). This is on a ROKU hard lined to the router, worked perfectly up till today. Rebooting everything has not helped yet.

Anyone else?

Try rebooting your router.

Reboot it again?
Call Comcast to complain

Profit (hopefully)?

When you say "everything", did you also include powering down the cable modem, then disconnect the Coax cable for at least 30 seconds, then reconnect and then power back up?

I noticed this issue, too. At first, it just loaded forever, and now everything is just suuuupeeerrrr slllloooowwwwww and has no sound. I don't remember which provider we have, but I think ours is also Comcast.

EDIT: I can watch 3 shows all the way through with no problem, but after that, there's nothing for a few hours at least.

Okay, so it isn't just me. I thought there was something wrong with Crunchyroll and even sent them a message. Wish I had found this post before I bugged them about it. But I didn't connect it to Comcast until today.

And I highly doubt calling Comcast is going to do anything, because I highly doubt they'll care. It's going to be such a pain in the arse to switch providers, but it looks like I might have to.
