will free members ever be able to login to the app, or are we stuck with the browser?

Other apps have been premium only at first, and then free member support came later. The difference I see here is the availability of sample episodes, which may indicate that Crunchyroll currently plans to keep this app a premium only feature. While that doesn't mean they couldn't change their mind down the line, this may be one time when free members shouldn't expect access in the near future.

I get the impression premium users are considerably more valuable to CR financially than free users. I wouldn't be surprised if faced with the choice of losing 3 free users for each premium user they gained, that it would still be a net gain for CR. (Those numbers are just arbitrary. For all I know it could be 2:1, 5:1 or even 10:1). Revenue from free users depends on how many ads CR can sell that month, and how much they can get for them, while subscription revenue is very predictable.

You could always make friends with a premium member and use their guest passes.

That sounds as if it is not recognizing you have a premium account.

I don't have a PS3, so I'm not familiar with the PS3 app, but you may want to try logging out and back in, or unlinking/relinking it to your account, depending on how it works.

I too am having troubles with the app, and have had it freeze my PS3.

When it does work, it seems to work fine, but it is very finicky so far. Not a deal breaker, but I'd like to see it running better as well.

However, the interface is quite slick, and I was surprised at the quality of the video! Goods stuff in that regard.

I have to agree with you on the issues I had them myself, as well, but what made me really wonder was, I opened my normal app for watching Crunchy roll ran it while the ps3 app was still running and did not have any of the issues taking place that the ps3 had.. dropped subtitles, that are actually working, in the other app., picture wasn't as clear either, unknown lag or stop and start issue.

The first time I watched the ps3 app I ran it solo and it had the above issues. But as I said with the ps3 still using my cable the other app ran just fine and showed none of those problems. So I have to say, I may have an issue with my PS3, that is not the new apps fault, or if others are seeing these same issues, then it must be that either the ps3 doesn't do this so well or the app itself has a minor problem.
