I've been a premium user for more than a year but I've never been "forced" to watch a commercial...

If you're talking about those ads on the background, then it's a different story. But I kind of like those background ads, they're always somewhat related to anime/gaming and I clicked on several of them throughout the past year.

And I don't mind having ads, even as a premium member, if it means that will keep this site running.

I generally don't pay for the CR premium membership (I'm using a 14-day freebie membership at the moment), but I was a premium member a while back and I never saw an in stream commercial while watching a show. I stream mostly on my PC (via web browser) or on my iPad 4 (via the CR iPad App).

How do you generally stream from Crunchyroll? Computer, hardware (Roku, Xbox, etc.), mobile App (Android), tablet (iPad)?

If you're on a PC, have your run Malware scans on your computer?

Are you sure you were logged into Crunchyroll when your were streaming? Maybe your log-in cookie expired and you thought you were logged in, but you weren't. Maybe you were accidentally logged out.

If you're referring to the Ads on the web site and in the forums, there are a handful of perfectly legal ways to block those if they bother you.

As others have stated here, I have a premium membership and never see ads during the videos. The closest thing I saw to an ad in a video were the promos for Gundam Unicorn that appeared before each Gundam video.

As has been stated, check to make certain you are still logged in. If you are watching on the computer and suddenly have access to only SD (360p), that is another sign you've been logged out.

Where are you seeing ads?
Did you try logging out and logging back in?
