Damn only in US and Canada. When will CR be serious when getting licensing for countries outside US like last time?

All the shows I'm interested in seem to be region locked (-_-').....

What are you talking about? The Idol M@ster is available in both North America (which as anyone in Mexico would tell you, isn't just the US and Canada) and South America, while Morita-san wa Mukuchi is available worldwide except Japan.

I'm beginning to think that my membership isn't worth it for the lack of new shows available in the UK

But North America and South America is .... way too small. What we're waiting for is more "Worldwide except Japan" regional restrictions. Only titles from Marvelous Entertainment have very wide scope, too bad they don't produce anime every season.

Agreed. Apparently, only Marvelous Entertainmen anime titles stream worldwide. Unfortunately, they don't have titles every season so its kinda sad since many anime titles this season is only for US only.

Oh what a surprise, another title not available to the UK
We pay the same membership fee as anyone else and we get access to less titles, as well as having titles removed such as Sora No Otoshimono Forte.

Like the fact that another show is unavailable to the UK. Thanks for that.

At least we have one more. Even if it's short, doesn't look too good, and I'd much rather Idolm@ster to what we actually did get. And yeah, it may be your biggest season yet, and I think it's good that most shows get legal streams now, but I'd have rathered something like the last few seasons where you got less, but at least people outside the Americas, the Middle East and a few other countries actually got some of the better shows of the season.

But oh well. I can hope, but I very much doubt any of these will become available to the UK after they finish.

The problem with Mayo Chiki is that the primary network for it is TBS. CR hasn't had a simulcast of a TBS series in over 2 years. As I recall, Funimation had only one during that time (Dance in the Vampire Bund), which started well into the season, so it is true they are a better prospect. TAN had the only other TBS simulcast during that time (IS: Infinite Stratos), and it also started late (a first a the time for TAN, although it is obviously going to happen again this season).

EDIT/UPDATE: Aria the Scarlet Ammo, simulcast by Funimation in Spring 2011, was also a TBS series.
If you didn't realize, The Idolm@ster is also a TBS series that airs in the same 1h block as Mayo Chiki.

Thanks, I didn't notice that. At least that breaks the 2 year dry spell CR has had for TBS series. That may have had much to do with the delay in getting it, however, despite that is coming from Aniplex, and not TBS itself.

It remains to be seen if this will truly be a simulcast or not. This could end up being like the same season streaming TAN did with Kaichō wa Maid-sama! on a 10 week delay.

@TheAncientOne
As for NicoNico's success the only thing I can think of to look at is video views. The highest one listed (simulcast) is Uta No Prince Sama ep 1 at around 1200 views, and that's after what 3 weeks of it being up? I wonder how well it is doing. My main problem with there is the fullscreen.
