Windows 10 universal app that way it can be for windows phone and Windows 10... honestly that should not take that long to do as MS even has ways to get the apps ready. Saw the above post and if Funimation beats CR to a Windows app that would suck.


Video streaming apps for the PC often require separate software licensing. Some capabilities might be enabled and paid for on consoles and mobile devices by the maker of the device, but they are not included in a standard Windows install. To provide the same level of features app providers may have to buy expensive licenses for software to make them work on Windows for the PC.

However, I do NOT know if our app would be affected by this. But video and audio decoding is one of the areas which often comes with VERY expensive licensing costs.

Just an example: http://www.zdnet.com/article/a-closer-look-at-the-costs-and-fine-print-of-h-264-licenses/


Funimation managed to make a universal app for anime streaming.

Indeed, and it also marked the first time they beat CR to a platform. That's the type of thing CR should take notice of.

I just bought an LG Smart TV with "WebOS 2.0", and to my surprise I have everything I want on it except Crunchyroll.
Please fix this.

CR discontinued all their Smart TV apps several months ago, reportedly due to low usage numbers not justifying the cost of maintaining the apps.

Then it looks like Crunchyroll will simply lose even more market share (revenue) to Netflix and the other streaming services.

Perhaps when and if Netflix starts grabbing more titles each season (they are up to two this season), that will need to be something they are concerned about.

The simple fact is, Netflix can afford to be on a lot more platforms because they have a lot more subscribers. Early this year, Netflix passed 75 million subscribers worldwide, compared to CR's 20 million users, but only around 800,000 subscribers at last report.

You also have to consider that on any smart TV, you can bet Netflix would be one of the default apps that are already installed, while CR would have likely been one users had to go find in the TV's "store" and install. Survey a random selection of smart TV users, and aside from those that never even used the smart tv features, I'd bet you would find a healthy percentage that never installed any additional apps, and a shocking percentage that didn't even know they could.


Finally, I'll point out that CR's real competitors (that are available in the US) in the streaming anime market don't have smart TV apps, either. In fact, at least in the English-speaking market, Funimation is the only one that really competes with CR in terms of number of platforms supported.

Windows 10 app please. If you could somehow make it work with Cortana so that I could tell her to play shows while in the app would blow my mind.
