60$ for a legal 720p stream one hour after broadcast for a whole year. Hell with today's exchange rate, It's only costing me 6 euro's more than a 13 episode dvd-boxset. Best deal I've had all year also thanks for the pay-pal option ensuring that it's easily available for everyone with a standard bank-account. Mind you the security could be better I just downloaded the 720p demo with the realplayer downloader. It plays like shit on realplayer but that's what vlc is for

hmmm...but I thought that we weren't going to be allowed to download the episodes.
Really, the membership cost isn't bad. 6 dollars for a month is about the same as buying one meal.

My point exactly they need to improve their security. Because if it remains this easy to rip the video this whole thing will collapse in on itself before you can say: Rasengan.

Is there a way to protect the videos? I mean, I know how to download videos from youtube, so if youtube can't protect its videos, will crunchyroll be able to do so?

OMFG! I'd totally do it... IF I know what and what shows are available... like a schedule of what is going to be shown and when it's going to be shown would be nice. really nice actually. But I'll wait for the time being for more infos... just gotta know if it's gonna be worth it... cause I don't want to pay about $7 a month just to see 4 episodes for one series (more if you're watching more than one series) ...

About the whole downloading thing, maybe you could talk it over with them higher ups. say... charge people for downloading an episode??? just like i-tunes and etc. are doing... anyways, that was just a suggestion.

EDIT:
Okays... So I went through some of the old posts... so... the downloading thing is out of the questions... but it'd be nice.

I'd love to watch the episodes on the very same day they air... BUT... PLEASE:

1. Post up a schedule of what series is going to shown... (Be specific, it would help a lot)

2. Besides Naruto Shippuden, Skip Beat!, Shugo Chara, and Gintama; what else is available?

3. How long are the episodes available?

4. You still gonna have the old fansubbed episodes available or are you gonna have old & legit episodes?? or none???

5. How long is the promotion? When promotion is done, is the subscription going to be as expensive as $12.99 and up for a month or more as mentioned when you was comparing the prices???

there's a possibility I just might get this IF there's more info and the questions are answered... cause I'm so into anime that I'm downloading and buying them (when I make enough dough) at the same time...

Good questions and recommendations. I don't watch any of the animes Shinji listed.

Right now there seems to be no limit.

No fansubs will be available. It would be hard to have companies partner up with you if you are going hold on to fansubs. As much as we use loopholes to not consider them illegal, to those companies they are illegal.
Now which episodes will be replaced by legit episodes depends on which shows crunchyroll has the licenses for.

I am guessing that it will be available upto Jan 8. Might be a bit after that to let in those who have seen the new crunchyroll and then want to take the promotion. I believe that the 12.99 is the actual price which is whythis promotion is really good since you can lock in prices that are half that of the regular offer

My recommendation is that if you can, take the monthly offer. If you aren't happy with the new crunchyroll, you can cancel the renewal. At least this way you will have locked down the lower prices

Edit:

This is what Shinji wrote on another thread:
"Anime Memberships are only available starting January 2nd, but you can preorder it today for a special discount"
so I think that this offer might only be available until Jan 2nd

I'm already gonna quit WoW (i miss console gaming) so i may pay for a membership to this...but there's one problem, Gintama is the only show i watch on the list so far...maybe naruto but its meh. I need a bigger list! get a hold of One Piece and then i'm probably on board.
