Hey anyone who cares,

So I recently got an email announcing that drama fever will now be available on VRV for your viewing pleasure. Hooray I thought...but wait, then I remembered that VRV is not available to certain regions outside of the US. (My region included)

Hmmm, oh well, then I remembered that it doesn't matter because I'm already subscribed to drama fever on my PS4 and they don't block their content from anyone,,,,Yay good for them..No worries.

But then ....a few weeks later I try to log in to drama fever on my PS4 and surprise, surprise, there's no longer a drama fever app available for me to satisfy my cravings.
Not good, I'm pissed, very pissed.

I thought to myself, calm down, This could very well be just a silly coincidence with no connection whatsoever.
But my adult self seems to think... it's not...

So here I am ranting, because I'm a paying customer, who pays exactly the same amount of money as everyone else and yet I'm being blocked from having full access to all that crunchy roll has to offer.

Am I not good enough? is my money not good enough?
Now I can't even indulge in my KDrama obsession.

This is not cool guys

And its confusing because crunchyroll is available to me (not all of the content mind you ) but i'm still able to log in.
So why is VRV just flat out unavailable, as if I'm some sort of inferior species with no right to watch Japanese content on an American Platform?

Whats the deal? Are you guys gonna make it available to everyone or not?

Can I at least get an explanation as to why this makes sense to you? More subscribers mean more money doesn't it??
Please educate me if I'm being totally ignorant here... lol

Why can't I watch VRV outside of the US?

We really appreciate the interest you have in our service!

Unfortunately, VRV is currently only available in the US. Not all of our partners have international licensing so we are pushing them to get that for their content. While we do intend to continue growing and expanding to other countries, we do not have a timeline for when that may begin happening.

Please keep an eye on future announcements and we'll be sure to let you know!

Aww, I'm still sad

But thanks for your explanation.

Guess it can't be helped.

If you're looking for a substitute for DramaFever, you can check out Viki. I am not sure if they service your market, but I think they service more than just North America. They do have some overlapping content between the two services.
