Primarily to encourage you to become a premium member. While the free membership helps bring eyeballs to CR, it apparently doesn't help much in the way of profits.

It also saved them from having to code support for commercials and a different membership level into the app.

That is true, but wouldn't it technically mean more ad revenue for crunchyroll if they allowed non premium members to watch shows on XBL? I would use it all the time, probably give crunchyroll 7 figures by the time I die.

Since CR isn't likely to let me peek at their accounting, I can't be certain of this, but based on what Funimation had stated in the past, ad-supported streaming is rather close to a break-even business (i.e., if there is a profit, it isn't significant).

If someone viewing the ads sees the same ad repeated, or sees a number of "in house" ads, that is a sign the ad sales aren't going so well. That also could mean those streams are actually losing some money.

In the early days, it made sense for CR to get as many people to come to the site as they could, regardless of the profit or lack thereof. Now that CR has a healthy user base, it makes more sense to try and convert as many of those to premium (and profitable) users as possible.

Another item the PS3, 360, and Apple TV apps all have in common is they support 720p (a premium feature), but the actual resolution you receive depends on your connection. If they wanted to support free users, they would not only need to code in ad support to each app, but code in a limit to 360p resolution.

I have waited for this for a long time. Couldn't be happier that I can use CR on my 360. Thanks for finally bringing CR to the 360.

For whatever reason(s), CR hasn't rolled it out to any other countries.

You can search Google for instructions on how to create a U.S. PSN account, and then download and install the app and it will work. If you do so, however, be warned not to expect support from CR for any problems as they don't officially support it yet for your country.

Ah~ Thank you so much for your help! I'll go try that out now. Hopefully they'll support Ireland officially soon! Do you think it would work on Xbox, too? Hmm~ I'll try it out! (>w^)

Anyway, all the best!

Has anyone noticed the app will skip 10 seconds forward at random times? Its really annoying and I've tested it on the website and it won't skip at all. Anyone with support connections, could you please pass my note up-to someone so this problem can be fixed please
