Anyone want to start a petition to get HD on the Roku box. The Roku box was one of Crunchyroll's first streaming device and it deserves HD too! The Roku app has been out for a long time but it still hasn't got HD yet. The Roku app is actually one of the best apps out their on the Roku, but it will be better if premium people could get HD. The PS3 and Xbox's app got HD really fast after their app got released. I know the PS3 and Xbox are really popular, but I know a lot of people use the Roku app too. I mostly watch anime with the Roku box these days because it feels more better on a tv than a laptop. I don't want to waste the $7 I pay on 480p, if I could watch it HD on a computer. I'd prefer my 40" than my 15.6" for HD anime, so let the Roku box have HD. I don't want to open up the PS3 or Xbox since it's more of a hassle(because I barely even open it and when I open it to watch CR, I need to update the playstation or the ps3 app freezes...).

Also, personally, I bought a Roku box to watch CR on. 99% of the time I watch Crunchyroll on the Roku. The Roku app for CR is actually the best and easiest to use on the Roku than other apps. I feel ripped off that the Roku doesn't have HD. I pay $7 every month for CR and I paid $99 on the Roku. Please make my money worth it.

So any other Roku users that want HD?

just get rid of Roku and get yourself an PS3. 99$ for that box when you can't even play ps3 games or watch blue ray? I highly recommend you buying it on the christmas sale

Have you considered lolitsronald might use the Roku for more than Crunchyroll? I known mine is. As an example, please point out the Funimation app on the PS3.

Had you considered that lolitsronald might have little to no interest in gaming and/or physical media?

Also, even the newest PS3 is a power hog compared to a Roku, and the PS3 doesn't play well with IR universal remotes. It also appears the PS3 app is still more problem prone for most users than the Roku app.

Just because you consider the PS3 the ultimate solution doesn't mean others agree.

^This.

Plus, the PS3 CR app suffers from Skyrim Syndrome anyway. The more you use it in one session, the worse the performance gets... or it just flat out crashes.

I still prefer the Roku for all my streaming services. Sure, HD would be nice, but I like it as it is.
