Hey everyone,

Just a heads up that Sony will be performing maintenance on PSN today from 8am to 7pm PST, so if you can't access your Crunchyroll App on the PS3, don't panic! Once the maintenance period is over, all services should resume normally.

The details of the maintenance are as below from the official PlayStation forums:


We wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that there is a planned maintenance for PlayStation Network scheduled for Monday, March 4th from 8AM to 7PM Pacific Time (11AM to 10PM Eastern). To clarify, this is an eleven hour maintenance.

If you’ve signed onto PSN over the past few days, you’ll still be able to play online and access apps during this period, but you may receive a maintenance notification when attempting to access the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, and Account Management as these services will be unavailable. Be sure to sign in now if you wish to access the Network during this maintenance window.

Thanks for your patience during this maintenance timeframe, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Why is the Crunchyroll PS3 app still US only? Seems bizarre when CR is available on other platforms in the UK, such as the Xbox and Roku.

You're not missing anything. It's a busted mess right now that doesn't really play nice at all past an hour or two of viewing in secession. Given how it locks up the PS3, it's probably not even safe.

Its because the Playstation Network is divded by country, mainly dealing with servers. Dealing with Xbox, Microsoft is everywhere altogether. The reason is becuase Sony is a physical product type of company whereas Microsoft is dealing with software. Though there are many other issues such as licensing and such.

Well i'm in the UK and i've got the PS3 app, If you have a US account just go on there and download it! If its downloaded on your ps3 you'll still be able to access it with your normal account.

It can sometimes be a bit temperamental but all the PS3 apps seem to have random freezes, etc so i don't think its specific to the Crunchyroll app. Most of the time it works fine

If you don't have a US account already that will take a while to set up but apart from that its a pretty easy process! :)

Hope this helps!

Yeah, the PS3 app is a joke. It freezes every couple minutes, so forget about watching a full episode of anything. Half the time it crashes, and you you have to restart your system. Which is real great because the reason we went premium is for the PS3 streaming.

I don't know what everyone is talking about but ever since the update for the app was release it's been working perfectly for me, no freezes, crashes or bugs at all. I watch all my episodes on the ps3 since my computer can't handle HD. The app has only crash for me once since the update and it was because I was constantly fucking with the app and my internet at the same time to test my new internet.

Does anyone know if crunchyroll will have an app ready the PS4 launch? I don't want to switch consoles every time I want to watch anime.

Same here. It's been excellent now. Last week I powerwatched Usagi Drop and it ran fine through all of them. Though personally to be on the safe side I'd recommend exiting the App and then restarting it (or just go take a break and come back) every 4 episodes or so. But I didn't have a problem.

What update, you mean the one from last August, the last time we got one? I'm not buying that. If you and the person below you aren't having problems, that makes you about the only two people around here that aren't about fed up with this garbage. I hate to be that way about it, but the show of hands is very much against this app being in any sort of proper order, and has been for a very, very long time now.

I'm sorry you're having issues with the app.

The ones in our office run fine.
My personal one at home runs fine.
When I ran a convention in Atlanta last year... it ran fine.

It's really a case by case basis I guess.
