It was great to see the Brits squirming a bit. It reminds them house lead violinist and who plays second fiddle. I'm glad they got it though. The bigger CR is, the better.


And the lead violinist, that would be -you- right? you don't think that's a TAD arrogant?




Don't you think that's a tad accurate?

If you dropped symphony in favour of opera, I'd say that the US being the lead soprano or 'first lady' to translate from the Italian suits the kind of United States that your attitude represents perfectly.

How exactly do you proceed to get clearance for these regions? Like what do you say and what are the arguements?

As a fellow American, I cringed when I saw sickVisionz's original message, and vainly hoped no one would take notice.

I suspect if CR had been a UK company, the situation on licensing would have been reversed, with the UK (and probably western Europe) getting the lion's share, and the U.S. (and Canada) getting the short end of the stick.

After all, it seems to be the case with services like Hulu remaining U.S. only, while Spotify remains unavailable in the U.S., and from what I've heard, probably will not be available here in my lifetime.

That is so true. region restricting the internet is just wrong people should realise this sooner.
We live all across this world but through the net we share a world withought borders.

plus i can watch house, heroes, lost etc everyday on sky / bbc but i can't watch it on hulu even though i've already paid for it once through
tv licensing and sky tv ( which pay's the companies that make the very same programs for being made ) it's a very stupid and antiquated system that needs to change. people need to look at the internet as a global ecconomy not just for your own region.

sigh...

i for one would really like to have a crunchy roll style subscription for the bbc i player for people outside the uk ( and a registering service so people from the uk can still watch it abroad ) but the subcription allowed for world wide access. hmmm maybe there should be a global tv licensing service where you can pay £15 a month and can watch any nation's tv or programing... wow that would be cool.

very true.
opening the region restriction on dvd players increased dvd sales between other countries.
releasing films worldwide in cinemas doubled takings at box offices as people no longer had to wait
3/6 months to see a film released in the US in europe.
BBC radio is available world wide via the net, it is the most listened to radio network in the world.
it's a shame that people still haven't realised that the whole WORLD has more people/viewers than any one country, so you can
kind of make sooooo much more money broadcasting to a wider audience. just look how popular japanese/chinese/korean
drama's and films are?
If it wasn't for people importing films would bruce lee have ever been known outside of asia or even jackie chan?

Creating box's for society only makes people think more outside of it ^_^

come on crunchyroll, you've taken a great idea that thought outside the box and made it legal. time to finally breakout of it for good.
region free on all video's, then you can sign me up for life as a premium member.. FOR LIFE!
