English dubbed shows is not what CR was created for. Its bread and butter is simulcasting shows just an hour after they air in Japan making it impossible to offer an English dubbed versions. CR has a very tiny list of shows with English dubbing, less than 10 shows I think. Also, a lot of the shows that CR has simulcasted in the past don't even have an English version yet or do not even have plans to make an English version. It can be a couple years before an English dubbed version of a show gets released.

Maybe in the future when CR grows bigger and has more money they will get more English dubbed shows, however that will be difficult or very expensive under current business models as the companies who have dubbed the shows have their own methods of streaming or offering the shows on other mediums and see CR as competition and do not want to allow CR to stream the shows that they have the rights too.

Your best bet for English dubbed streaming anime would be to check out Funimation, Netflix, and Hulu.
