Ya. It's called no life weekend.

May I assume you are a part of that demographic?

Joking, but seriously. It's the weekend i thought you would have figured this out by now

Hey I kinda agree with both of you. Yeah you have to expect high volumes on the weekends and at night, but at the same time, it feels pretty bad, paying 70 bucks a year or more on the service and not have such a large and ever-growing streaming service not expand their server availability. The problems are especially bad on Xbox One. It is very frustrating

yeah dude keep wasting your money saying its weekend when this happens every weekend, they should prepare some kinda fix if they know its gonna happen.

im trynna watch me some one piece and dbs simulcast and cant even do that.

if your accepting this kinda service with you having to spend your hard on money on a membership you might aswell just stream from a illegal site which i didnt want to do cause i taught services like this supported the creators of the anime but its looking not worth right now.

regardless of the time, it should work as it says it should.
"It's the weekend" Is a garbage excuse.

Youtube works on the weekends, and manages to let me watch 4k content with no buffering issues.
For some reason this site can hardly handle 720p.

Not to mention how much trouble I have with the app.

glad i'm only paying like 6$ for this lmfao.

But still, fix ya shit crunchyroll.
Instead of shoveling VRV down people's throats.

unless you are actually bungie in disguise...

People : STOP DEFENDING CRUNCHYROLL.

These dumbasses ARE charging us for a service. It SHOULD NOT MATTER what time it is. NEVER.

Do you hear Amazon, or Netflix, or ANY other service that has more consistent "outages" or "high volumes causing delays"?

I'll await your response.


P.S. Crunchyroll you can fuck off. I've been a paying member for years and I'm not renewing. This is beyond insulting. You guys sponsor shit like MAGICAL GIRL BOY, yet you can't fucking buy the good AWS server option with scalable nodes?

Fuck you guys.

The only reason I still have my premium crunchyroll account is to support the creators of said anime.... If somehow my little $70 a year supports creating more great anime... I'm all for it...

Before crunchyroll, I was torrenting all the shows... because there was no platform that you could easily access anime... And when you watch a ton of different anime a year... i couldn't justify spending $1000's a year on dvds/blurays...

If you think about it... that measely 6 dollars a month is way better than the 1000's you could pay if there was no streaming service.

Basically 6 dollars a month for an entire vault full of anime goodness doesnt seem too bad to me. Even if I can't watch the exact show I want to in the exact hour I want to... (really... all you have to wait for usually is about an hour after the episode airs.... and you can view it)

I swear... the internet should be restricted to those 18 and up... It's made the new generation so impatient because they are used to getting everything they want at the time they want it... Pre-internet-era: Oh you wanted to binge a show? Hell no! You have to wait a week to see if that episode you missed will be aired as a rerun (which most likely it didn't).

Back in my day we didn't have school buses... We had to walk to school in 4 feet of snow for 7 miles uphill both ways... *old man sarcasm*

Looking as a business that should aim for profit. I really don’t know why they still have free access to their content. If the problem is load, cut free access would certainly solve that. And would actually be a better service for who actually support it.

But that’s just my humble opinion.

There's no excuse for not having the pipeline to service the paying customers. They want my money when it's time to renew then prioritize the service or else why wouldn't I just watch netflix and let crunchyroll try to get by on the $0.13 ad revenue they make off non-premium site users.

I don’t think it’s a matter of impatience but expectations instead. You expect a kind of service level by paying (whatever they are charging you).

And (I hope) people stop writing that CR cannot be compared with other streaming websites ‘cos has less paying users and those who pay already pay a way less than other streaming sources, after all, it was CR who defined how much to charge..

Cheers!

I agree that there needs to be change. The overloading is the worst thing ever. Also please upgrade your damn player from Flash, this is 2018, not 2007.
