WELL..
ME & THIS PHRASE THAT HELPS INCLUDE ANOTHER SERIES TO MY "CAN NOT WATCH ON C.R" LIST..
HOW IT HAUNTS ME LIKE A NIGHTMARE IN THIS SITE..
<<<<<< Sorry, due to licensing limitations, this is unavailable in your region. >>>>>>
WHY DUZ THIS KEEEEEEEEEEP HAPPIN'N 2 ME??


For curiosity, which country are you in?

Of course, its not Crunchyroll that decides whether streaming rights are available in a region.

A company might acquire "exclusive digital distribution", and just say "no" to allowing simulcast streaming rights because its easier to say no than yes. Or they might think that legit simulcast streaming interferes with sales.

For simulcasts, the rights owner will sometimes avoid granting streaming rights in the hope that someone will pay extra for the license with exclusive digital rights included.

It is of course silly: all that happens when simulcast streaming rights are withheld is that the field is clear for bootleg subs. Crunchyroll knows that its silly. Sometimes the production committee in Tokyo knows that its silly. But DVD sales bring in a lot more per episode than streaming, so as long as the DVD distributors and television broadcasters insist on being silly, we will keep having this problem.

I was asking because sometimes its the DVD distributor and sometimes its the television or cable channel. For something like Giant Killing, it could be MBC3 ... you could try writing them and letting them know if they allow simulcast streaming from CR into their region, they could get a promotional tie-in targetted to users from their region.

Ozzies and kiwis both ... fitting for a World Cup year where both Australia and New Zealand get to send a team, from Australia coming ahead of Japan in its group in Asia and the All Whites beating Bahrain in the playoff for the half spot.

Little slow on the pick-up there CR, but cool none the less.

Would've rathered something like Night Raid or RAINBOW, though. They're in desperate need of regularly-scheduled subs.

Yup, 1 for those starting from the beginning, and 8 for those who have been sneaking a peak on the sly.
