What kind of TV do you have?
Is changing it to a smaller picture meaning you are changing the video mode on the TV?
Can you give me some episodes this happens on?

It happens on every bleach episode I watch. I'm not at home so I can't remember exactly what TV I have, but when I change the picture, it's an option in the little pause menu or whatever it is when you are using a controller while the video is playing. I don't actually do anything to my TV. I'll come back with more info when I go home.

First of all Id like to point out some points that CR can improve the service on Xbox.
1. Add more animes!!! I don't understand why some anime episodes are lacking. For example, Fairy tail only have 6 vids (that is not related to the manga) but here in the website there's a total of 100+ episodes.
2. Have different varieties of anime. As a male, i feel like most of the animes are for female viewers. Most of them are about daily life of a high school girl.
3. If its possible, release 2 episodes per week for most animes OR have it scheduled so that they have a different release schedules. For example, lets say Naruto releases on monday and hunter x hunter releases on tuesday and then another anime episode releases on wednesday.

I don't want to sound like some 10 year old kid wanting everything BUT since i'm paying $11 per month to watch videoes on my xbox, I feel like I have the right to ask for improvements. My experience using the app has been great so far. The video quality is above average, but none of this matters if there is no new and good animes to watch.

Hopefully to hear a respond soon

I'm starting to get rather annoyed. I've had consistent buffing issues while watching Naruto Shippuden. My internet connection is perfectly capable of supporting HD. However I almost never see the quality in HD. With the buffering issue when I'm watching shows (Almost always with Naruto Shippuden) The video will suddenly start buffering.
It then plays three seconds then has to buffer again. Sometimes when it's buffering it suddenly tells me server is unavailable & to retry or cancel. When I select retry it immediately reconnects & then puts me on a completely different episode at a random spot.
I have to back out of the show & search threw the anime to find the episode I was actually watching originally.

I'm usually happy with the service. However the more that this keeps on happening. I'm seriously thinking of cancelling my subscription all together. As I said above this mainly happens with "Naruto Shippuden". So I'm assuming it may be due to high volume of users watching the show at the same time. This shouldn't be an issue however.
I'm getting rather annoyed when I'm watching a show & it stops over 15-20 times just to buffer and screw up.
My internet connection is 50MB DL & 10MB UP. By no means should I be having any trouble.

To address your points.
1. Fairy Tail only has each episode only available for 30 days. That includes the website, too.
2. They add the shows that they can get, and I find that many of them are aimed at guys.
3. A lot of the shows are simulcast, meaning they are aired on here as soon as contractually possible after they air in Japan. That means one episode per week. For recently acquired catalogue titles that aren't made available all at once then they often release 2-3 episodes at a time.

So is fairy tail a simulcast anime? I mean all I'm getting in the xbox version is some shitty special 6 episodes of fairy tail and when I go online in my pc, and search for "fairy tail." I can see episode 100 or so. Don't you think that I should be able to access all available episodes in the xbox app even if its a simulcast SINCE PC users can access it.? Also, I guess we have different taste in anime. I don't watch animes that are centered in there school life or what not. Oh another thing to take note is that 60% of animes have less than 50 episodes (rough estimation)

Again I'm not whining, just trying to understand how this whole thing work and if I should continue my premium subscription. I access crunchy roll through my xbox 98% of the time. Also explain what this simulcast is... I mean is the episode gone after a certain time?

Look at Fairy Tail's page. There are only 5 episodes and the preview. Each episode is only available for 30 days and then it is removed. This is a special case only for Fairy Tail. Simulcast is a portmanteau of simultaneous and broadcast. It is used to refer to broadcasting something at the same, or a similar time, as it is somewhere else. In this case the term is loosely used to mean that the shows are made available here not long after they are aired on tv in Japan. Not every anime is going to go on for 100+ episodes. A two cour long season is often enough.

alright alright. Now I get why I'm confused. You see when I use the xbox app, I ALWAYS click the popular anime box and then just look at the numbers of videos in an anime. I always see "6 videos" and here not knowing anything about a special rule, I just assume they were they same 6 shitty episode of fairy tail that i watched.
Also to clarify stuff, only fairy tail's episode gets removed every 30 days? What I mean is, lets say an hunter x hunter ep. gets simlucasted, does that mean that the episode is going to get add up to the anime and accumulates over time?

Edit: also its not totally my fault that Im getting confused and im sure some people who signed up to CR on xbox and use it mostly as an app for xbox. Nothing was mentioned about some sort of a special rule or simulcast (which is something new). So we just assume that every episodes gets accumulated over time

Yes, this is just for fairy tail, other titles don't have the 30 day restriction. Simulcast is just the term used for any show on here that is still being aired in Japan, and has been the term used by CR for a while. If you were to look at the episode numbers, you would have seen that they add a new one every week.
