I purchased the all acces membership a day ago with the 2 weeks free trial but so far I don't see any changes in the shows . Basically all the shows are still the same as It was before I purchased the all access plan. Out of curiosity I checked the plan comparison page to see if I did a mistake in purchasing then I noticed it says that I am Ineligible for the trial. Does that mean I have to wait for the trial to end?

Same compared to the trial, or the same compared to the free membership?

The amount of shows won't change (except for a couple exceptions, like Fairy Tail which is premium only). What changes is the amount of episodes (Some shows, like Bleach, have certain episodes only available for premium users), early access to simulcast episodes (free members have to wait a week), no advertisements, HD video, and a few other things.

If you purchased a membership, that replaces the trial membership. What you should have done is used the free trial for the entire two weeks, and then purchased a membership when the trial expired.

Ohhh ok. Im really new to crunchyroll so still confused on some stuff. I just realized that there's region lock for some shows that's why i don't have sword art online on my account. . I am currently in Kuwait and there are a lot of shows that are not licensed for the country so I was wondering when I get back to my home country Malaysia will shows like sword art online appear in the crunchyroll app or will it also be locked?

Sword Art Online is available in America (North, Central and South), UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Sorry, don't see Malaysia on the list.

There are region restrictions because this is a legal streaming site, so they must obtain rights to stream the shows and cannot always get those rights in every country.

If you look at the list of anime it will only show those that are available in your region. Also, when they add a new show they will specify what regions it will be available in on the Site News post about that show.

Sorry to reply to an old post, but search brought me to this topic.

I'm on the two-week trial too, and aside from lack of ads, I don't see much difference. I'm in NA, so I suppose there's pretty much a lot available already, but I had assumed I'd be able to watch the simulcast episodes; however, as of right now, it's still showing a wait time.

I just want to clarify, is the simulcast available on the trial or not?

Yes, they are available on the trial.

Can you let me know what shows and the episode numbers are you having problems streaming?

Sure.

Attack on Titan ep 7 shows it will available tomorrow and OreImo ep 8 shows availability on June 1st. I can "view" them, but it only shows a preview. I've logged in and out several times to see if it was an error, but to no avail. I've been having some issues with flash in general though, so when I get home later (heading to work literally right now) I will reinstall flash, clear cache and make sure it's not chrome being dumb.

I just tested episode 7 on your account and was able to stream the whole show.

Can you try it on a different browser and let me know if it works?

I tested it on my phone and laptop last night and it worked fine. It turned out it was my computer (or chrome specifically, rather). As I said, I was having flash/browser issues altogether to begin with and it seemed like for some reason it was signing me out (sort of, it kept putting me in incognito mode) on any page with any sort of player on it.

Chrome had some lingering plugins from a profile save I had a long time ago and getting rid of most of them, clearing out my cache and re-installing chrome did the trick, though that might have been overkill.

Thanks a bunch for the quick response though!
