Hmm, you went and made the thread. Once again I commend you for taking the time to post this.

And also did I read correctly? $10 subscription fee for what? To sub the anime or the watch it? o.O


3. This means that CR will profit from the distribution of the subtitled anime, while you, the user, does not get anything in return (in fact, the user will commonly be paying the new $10 subscription fee to access this content).


I think it's just part of this general assumption that people seem to have that the non-subscribers are to be phased out of CR completely.


But it isn't true right? Or was there an announcement about it?



No. Subscription users will just receive higher quality video, and certain extras like simulcasts, and some exclusive content.


yeah what you said is true but the only thing what sucks is that you still can't watch the anime on cr if you are living in a region where everything is blocked

And yet, the solution had been sitting right in front of us all along.

I mean just look at where we are right here, CR is a worldwide OSP, with its head office located in America(region 1), and its website is hosted on an American server(region 1). That's why even its online services are available & accessible worldwide, when it comes to licensed anime series, it has to obey the licensing agreement regarding regional limitation on region 1 release and distribution.

Therefore, why not establish an OSP, with its head office located outside of region 1, and with its website being hosted on a different server that's not region 1. So when it comes to licensed anime series, it can renegotiate a different licensing agreement, thereby introducing legit anime series in any region outside of region 1.

^ nice thought. I wonder if Admin are doing similar steps right now. Any particular "region" you have in mind you think most appropriate to establish a new office?

This sounds like a good idea Dom. I think I will get on that once I check my loto ticket.

Well let's look at the next possible/suitable region besides region 1, thereby avoiding a direct confrontation against CR's interest:

That's a worldwide DVD region coding chat. So by the looks of it, and by factor in the general complains regarding the region blocking on some CR users, I would say the next step is to establish a CR like OSP for region 2 through 4.

^ I was under the impression that most complaints are coming from those users within Asia. So I think 3 should be part of the consideration

So if I want to import a DVD from Japan I have to buy a region 2 DVD player to watch it??

My bad, my mistake. Pardon my inept reading ability.

I'm fascinated by this map though, how did you get hold of it?

Isn't subs not the main issue in the videos but the encoding?
Posted 1/7/09
I resubbed an episode of Zaion to fix the timing but i was told that CR wouldnt accept it (by other users not CR) so i didn't submit it. However when ever i watch the show i get to watch my version of the sub

I would be willing to sub some episodes, of shows that I actually enjoy watching. However it might be months before I see anything that I want to sub on the site. I'm sure I'll see one eventually ~hopefully.
