What I think would be the best idea is for Crunchyroll to redesign the site in HTML 5. Android, iOS, WP, Windows RT, Windows 8, and OS X now all support HTML 5. That way CR would no longer have to keep developing apps for these platforms and can focus more on the site. (CR would still need to support apps for other devices like Samsung TVs, Boxee, Roku, ect...) CR can also leave a non-HTML 5 version of the site up for people still running platforms that do not support HTML 5.

However, there are two major things in the way of this right now. One being that HTML 5 still hasn't fully matured and still does not support copy protected streaming, which CR needs to stream its licensed content. The second thing being that older versions of Android and WP do not fully support HTML 5, so users of older devices would still need an app. As time passes, the second problem becomes less relevant.

What do you mean when you say HTML5 doesn't support copy protected streaming? I think I've seen videos on at least one website that I'm sure are copy protected and are in HTML5.

Indeed, B&N surely breathed a sigh of relief when the iPad Mini was brought out at $330, leaving the entire Nook product range underneath the new iPad starting price point.

This is clearly down to how one defines class. Given the $100 price spread between the Nexus 10 and iPad with Retina Display, would those be in the same class?

In my mind, "class" in tablets is more of a function of size than price.I would put any 9-10" tablet in the same class, be it Android, iOS, or Windows RT, and the same for any 7-8" tablet. I believe most people would be no more likely to automatically rule out purchasing one tablet over another due to a $130 price difference than they would ruling out one notebook or desktop PC over another due to the same price price difference.

Regarding the iPad Mini, no doubt B&N was heartened by the fact that it retained the iPad 2's resolution, which results in a substantially lower resolution screen than the Nook HD, much less the more closely priced and larger Nook HD+.

Hopefully when CR finally adds HD to the Android apps, they'll keep the new Nook tablets and Kindle Fire models in mind.

It means just that. There is no built in copy protection in HTML 5, strictly speaking DRM. There are a couple proposed solutions, but nothing has been added to the Web standard yet. There are also other things missing from HTML 5 that needs to be added before it can replace Flash completely,

http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57464545-93/adobe-web-standards-match-80-percent-of-flash-features/


More controversial is copy protection for video, a major feature that Flash video offers but that Web video does not. HTML standard editor and Google employee Ian Hickson has strongly derided digital rights management, which restricts people's ability to copy video, in Web standards.

"It's supported by Google but not Ian Hickson," Gourdol said, and Adobe and Netflix are also working with Google on the technology.

"The content providers think it's pretty important, and we want to give them solutions, particularly for the high-definition content," Gourdol said.

This is due to licensing restrictions and is something CR has no control over. There is a note on Fairy Tail's show information page about this.

Note that's basically exactly Fairy Tail that is like that: that was Crunchyroll's rights from the beginning of the series, to simulcast the show and keep each one up for four weeks.

Now the show is licensed for home video by FUNimation, so there's no real chance of those license terms being expanded.

Then strike the HD+ from the statement ~ at least until Google introduces the next generation replacement for the Nexus 7 ~ since B&N's main sales will be the 1440x900 7in Nook HD. That's why its got a choice of white and charcoal grey, while the larger HD+ only comes in charcoal grey.

And, yes, B&N also breathed a sigh of relief when the resolution it was at the iPad2 resolution. Since they sell a good share of their kit in their stores, being able to have a price comparison sheet with the iPad Mini up their $100-$130 higher and worse video specs, and the Nook HD in the customer's hands, the Apple pricing decision surely made them happy.

And market segment splits by price points (vertically) and product characteristics (horizontally) are indeed always a bit fuzzy, as the thresholds are different for different consumers. If you lump all 9in-10in tablets together, and don't split them between the budget and premium price points, the Nook HD+ was not as high resolution as the new generation iPad, already in the market. It is, of course, full 1080p resolution in a 2:1 form factor (optimized for digital magazines), and given the pride of place that B&N gave to the new Nook Video store (with the XBox Live video content), I'd bet they think anything higher would have been overkill, making it harder to hit their price point without any appreciable benefit.

Google is obviously pricing against the market leader, more resolution than the iPad2 and $100 cheaper than the "iPad3". They may have considered what Amazon was doing with their Fire HD+, but likely not B&N, since the Nooks are the smaller market share and the least market overlap with the Nexus 10.

Add a vote for a Windows 8 RT app crunchy! I'm sure you're working on it, but I thought I'd just add my voice to the chorus!

In no order of importantance:
Windows Media Center Plugin
Offical Playon Plugin
Sony Bravia TVs
A real WD Live app

The plugins could allow a bunch of different devices play Crunchyroll without needing support for the device itself. There is an unofficial plugin for playon which is something I used in the past but it doesn't support logins. I have doubt that you can get an app on Sony TVs. Same complaint as everyone else about Flingo (WD app).
