I can understand Crunchyroll wanting to sugarcoat their paid subscription as an "Anime Membership", but make no mistake, we're paying for subscription content here and do not want to be seeing video ads before the content that we pay to watch. Fix it.

I feel the same way. We are paying member and so we got rights. As a reminder, here's what's writen in the Premium Membership plan page.

Advertisements : None for all access member / No video ads and Pages display for Anime/Drama member.

Then in little in the bottom :

=> You will not see any display ads except for direct sponsorships, which include front-page takeovers and integrated promotions. Premium Members will never see video advertisements for the videos in their section.

So, I hope it's only a little bug. But as far as I know, every video is now showing an AD after 30sec. Should be fixed soon or else... we'll get to see nice stupid stuff all the time.

Thanks for reading.

If this "bug" is still there when im supposed to be paying next payment, im going to cancel this. If i'm paying 50$ per year for you guys, i don't want to see ads on my page or before current episode...

Meow, looks like a little bug. "Started a couple of hours ago" <--- I bet it's going to get fixed in a "couple of hours". Patience, guys.

I can't really be as fierce as people who actually paid (black Friday member here), but I am having the same problem.

Look at the Membership listing page - http://www.crunchyroll.com/premium_comparison?src=topbar

They have an all access membership up now and a few ad providers slipped the ads through using the difference between the individual Anime and Drama Memberships and the all access level memberships by "forgetting" to put the proper limiters in the ad content they provide to Crunchyroll. Ad content providers are more concerned with firing out ads machine gun style to make money quantity wise than quality wise since they get paid by click or views, which allows Trojans viruses to slip in and Shinji & his team have done a better than average job of keeping the video codec cleaned out, in fact that's what likely cause the videos to freeze/go blank occasionally.
