Crunchyroll is now available on yet another device! We've had the iOS and Boxee apps for a while. Now it's time for Roku!

If you don't know what Roku is, it's a small set top box that you plug into your TV with an HDMI video/audio cable. Then you use WiFi or wired ethernet to get internet. Then you can stream Crunchyroll on your TV! Boxes start at $60. Hang tight though and don't buy one just yet - we might be able to get a good deal for Crunchyroll users

If you already have a Roku box, get the Crunchyroll app from the Channel Store.

You can also link your Crunchyroll account. As usual, you can watch for free and Premium Members get:
- early access to simulcast videos
- higher quality videos
- access to premium-only videos
- no advertisements

PS We're still busily encoding our videos in our back catalog library (Roku needs a special encode), so it might be a week or two before everything is available. Most of the popular shows are ready to watch though!

I might get one...It's way cheap than the boxee box..
I'd like to know if you guys will release an app for the ps3 before I do anything though..
Also, when might we get the "good deal for crunchyroll users"?

seems like a cool device but i have no needs since I have my computer hooked up to my 42 vivizo with a hdmi cord and high end card. This is however a good choice for those that do not want to do this pain in the ass setup so good work shinji.

Thank you for the Roku app. My sister will appreciate it.

Once the Android app rolls out (edit: and when the manga stuff is near completeion for Bitway), would CR please update/fix the Boxee app? It needs some help.

That's awesome news! I've already added the Crunchyroll channel on 4 of my Roku Players in my home and associated 3 of those to my CR All-Access Membership. The forth Roku Player I'll reserve for testing CR's free, non-membership programming, that way I can tell other members of our local Anime club to expect from a free-to-watch option.

From what I've watched of the currently available content on the Roku Crunchyroll channel, so far looks great, especially on the 52" LCD HDTV in my living room.

Thank you for the heads up. I'll start passing the word around that CR has arrived on the Roku Channel Store...
