Any chance that Crunchyroll could become a Roku channel? I would LOVE for the ability to at least my WatchList to be accessed through Roku as it makes it SO easy to watch on my media system!

That would be awesome! I have not used netflix in a long time but that would be a huge win for CR.

I thought that the Roku player was strictly a Netflix only thing. If it could do CR also it might actually be worth the drop in the hat to be able to watch it on my TV instead of in front of my computer.

It looks like it will be available on PopBox soon so hopefully Roku follows suit

Roku is a lot more than Netflix. You can check out the official channel lineup here:
http://www.roku.com/roku-channel-store

There are both free and paid channels, so CR could do one or both.

I posted, "Has Crunchyroll given any consideration to offering a Roku channel?" in the Suggestions topic 11 days ago, but received no response.

Hopefully this topic will garner more attention from the powers that be.

Being able to buy a $70-$100 device and watch CR on the big screen would be a big incentive to many people, and some of the other channels available would make it an easier sell to parents.

One more item to consider, Crunchyroll: This would be a clear advantage over fansubs.

We are looking into providing support for Roku's platform but that is the extent of what I know on the subject.

I don't have concrete info on this at the moment but I believe we're going to be releasing a Roku app/channel in the near future.
