Only 24 hours? That seems like more trouble than it's worth.

Personally, it should be a week, at the LEAST, so that the potential customers - you know, the REASON you're doing this - can get a feel for the site over the week, and see the reason of a premium membership - that is, simulcasts, higher quality, no ads. Considering in the span of 3 days last week alone you ADDED a bunch of stuff.

You stand to gain more by doing it that way.

I've been an anime member for more then 30 days and I only got one?


I've been an anime member since last year, and was surprised to see only one link, but then I clicked through and saw three passes.

I guess its one for each 30 days, so if you are at like 45 days, you'd have one and be 15 days away from the next.

Is 3 the limit? Like if i didn't use them before the next month, would I not get another one?


They've got a 90 day expiration date, and we'll have one each month, since it says:

If you are a Premium Member, you will receive a Guest Pass for every 30 days as a member going forward.

... so someone who does not hand out their passes for two months will have three available, total. Longer time members are just getting "seeded" with a little launch bonus.

There's still the free trial. You got a good friend who's broke, they get to marathon on some day they have free. You have a friend who is reluctant to "burn" their free trial, they get a taste.

If the person can pick the day (up til expiration), they've got a chance to both sample the new simulcasts and see how they like watching without ads, and also whether they have a system/network connection that gives them any benefit from the higher definition streams.

Is this meant to replace the premium free trial?
cause 24 hours of access vs two weeks of access doesn't sound like the guest pass is that cool.
Don't think so, cause the guest passes are live and the free trial link at the top of the page is still live, so it looks like they live side by side.

Brilliant!
This is certainly a great idea. I'll certainly use this as leverage to convince my friends who haven't looked yet!
But do these expire / is there a maximum we can hold on to? I'm also under the impression we can give one friend multiple passes. That's cool if so.

I actually think making the individual passes would have been more appropriate as 3-day passes, particularly for the objective of letting them witness multiple simulcasts as they happen.

EDIT: Oh, I see agila61 nicely highlighted the detail about expiration. It was tough to spot.

Hmm, in that case, I fear the present state is indeed insufficient. 3 total for 24 hours each. The 3month "cooldown" seems appropriate for if all were used at once though. But I already expressed 3 days is ideal for getting an experience. That means I'd have to use all of these on one friend, for one weekend, and exclude others.

yea I also think this should be at least a 2 or 3 day guest pass. 24 hours is just not enough.

on a side note I already handed out one guest pass and will randomly give the other two out to other CR members
