If anyone would like to experiment with sideload the FireTV, it will run the 0.9.3 version of Crunchyroll APK. I just installed it on my FireTV and it is working flawlessly. It does take a tiny bit of knowledge about using the command prompt for windows. (sorry, I don't have a mac)

Proof it works: http://min.us/mBMBtkYQhcftl

Hey, for those with the Roku, how good is the app on there? I want to watch CR on fullscreen all the time rather than just have my laptop hooked up to my tv and keep putting it on fullscreen after each new video.

Or maybe, the real question is, what is the best device to watch CR on?

With the current state of device apps, the Apple TV is the only "set top box" that provides 1080p at this moment (if you have the bandwidth). ($100) If you are joined at the hip with Apple and iTunes, this is what to get.

The Roku has only 480p at present, but CR is very close now to releasing a high resolution app with a better navigation interface, according to a post I just read by one of the CR people.

The Roku 3 ($100) has a remote that allows you to use regular headphones in a wireless fashion, so at night you don't wake other people in the household. It also has dual antenna capability for faster wireless streaming, a faster processor than it's stick version, and a cat-5 port if you want to plug in instead. Only uses HDMI to your TV. Other cheaper models (1 & 2) can use use RCA jacks with sound (Cable included)

The new Roku stick plugs into the back of your TV with HDMI but still needs USB power, and the remote doesn't have a headphone jack. Still, this is only $50 instead and has all the other Roku functionality.

Amazon TV ($100) looks to be a strong up and coming contender, especially if you are somewhat of a gamer, because it looks like android games will be a big deal on it, but to get CR on there, you currently have to sideload the Android app, and that is currently only in standard definition. If CR is your primary use then this is a "not yet".

Chromecast is cheapest at $35 but directly supported casting isn't yet, but you might cast/mirror video from your PC from within the Chrome browser extension. It also has far fewer other apps than other devices so far. You also need to use a smartphone or tablet to control it, it doesn't come with a stand-alone remote.

So, what's best is how much you can spend vs functionality and whether or not you're a gamer. My choice is the Roku because I also have Amazon Prime for shipping, and the headphone jack works out very well for me. The 480 streaming is not a worry for me, that is still DVD quality, just not blue-ray, and I don't sit close enough to my TV for it to matter that much anyway. But HD is on the way for it, we just don't have an actual promised date.

Well, I have a chromecast, or had one, and I gave it to my mom who liked it more than I did. I think I might go for the Roku and call it a day. All I want is full screen anime, and 480p still looks fantastic from my laptop. Honestly, I kinda wish that a blu-ray player would have a decent app, but I keep hearing terrible things about the PS3 app.

I watch Netflix and Hulu Plus on my 3DS all the time... I'd love to see Crunchyroll make the jump to that platform.

This will probably be an unpopular request, but the Ouya. I have one and it doesn't have Netflix, HBO Go, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Funimation, or Crunchyroll. Honestly, I wish I had some sort of video streaming service on it.

Did you try installing the Ouya app, it even supports 1080p playback.

Crunchyroll app: https://www.ouya.tv/game/Crunchyroll/

It was announced back in October of last year:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-825095/crunchyroll-comes-to-ouya-nogizaka-returns-to-cr

I just noticed the OUYA app also supports free streaming, something no other new app released since the PS3 app has done. I expect that this is because it is effectively an Android app, although unlike the general Android app and as beardfist noted above, the OUYA app supports up to 1080p (for premium members).
