Your words seem to indicate you're giving Crunchyroll a break because they're a small company. That's your prerogative but I don't have to do the same. I really want the content and service Crunchyroll is providing, ...

Given that Funimation and TheAnimeNetwork do not have PS3 apps and Viz is launching a linear channel without video selection, that puts them ahead of everyone but Sony, with Crackle out, and Nozomi (who rides off of Youtube's streaming distribution to devices, as Funimation used to do).

I think you guys are forgetting NeonValley or w/e, a new streaming app coming to PS3 soon for anime fans. I hear it'll have a large list of dubs as well.

That's irrelevant to me. They are competing on the same platform as those products but offer a vastly inferior experience. An experience that is literally broken and unusable unless you want to miss chunks of an episode.

People seem to give the impression that Hulu Plus and Netflix on the PS3 were perfect out of the gate. I don't know about Netflix, but that certainly doesn't seem to be the case with the PS3:
http://www.hulu.com/discussions/10
Check the thread "Hulu and the PS3 - Will it ever be fixed?" (currently 65 posts and 5064 views).

Take note that even with the reports of problems here, CR still has people pushing for releases in other countries and HD video. I doubt they could have conducted a proper limited beta without people hounding them with "When will it be released for all of us?" questions. You certainly didn't see people saying, "Take your time, I'll wait, just make certain it is good".

My recommendation to anyone displeased with the app: Don't use it until you see reports of it working well. You'll be no worse off than if CR had taken longer to release it in the first place.

Instead of fixing the PS3 app, let's make an Xbox 360 app instead!

It will have dubs but it is a linear channel it's not on demand and there is no dvr, it's like a regular tv channel on the PS3.

Think I'll be cancelling again. I've used this on Roku and now PS3 and no HD on either. While the PS3 player has improved since the update; it's still not perfect. I noticed some minor hiccups during playback and the picture quality wasn't as good as it could have been (without the HD of course). Yet the Youtube player app just came out and that app is free, in HD and works flawlessly. How did they get it right on the first try and you want to make people wait while releasing an unfinished app? I think the your app can be great if you'd offer paying members HD with flawless streaming. Maybe also some tweaks in the settings besides "logout"? Anyways, I'll be interested in trying it out again for PS3 once you get your player working properly and in full HD. You wouldn't have to keep offering so many free trials if you'd just put out quality software to play the media your customers want to see. :)

Good day,

LOL. Perhaps because one is a small company with fewer employees than most supermarkets and the other is an industry giant owned by Google, a company with over $9.7 billion in income last year.


As it turns out, your opinion that the PS3 YouTube app "works flawlessly" is not shared by all:
