Sometimes you just hate living in Australia. With all the licensing restrictions it makes watching anime bad.
I can't watch much anime at all.. I purchased a crunchyroll premium membership because I wanted to stream anime legally, however, now I am being forced to go onto different sites to watch all the good anime. I wanted to watch "Code Geass" on crunchyroll.. NOPE!! due to licensing restictions U CAN'T WATCH THIS..
Dang, okay maybe I will watch the original Naruto.. NOPE!! due to licensing restictions U CAN'T WATCH THIS..
Hmm, Blue excorcist.. NOPE!! due to licensing restictions U CAN'T WATCH THIS..
I hear that the Attack on Titans anime seems promising.. NOPE!! due to licensing restictions U CAN'T WATCH THIS..
well okay what about.. NOPE!! due to licensing restictions U CAN'T WATCH THIS..
this looks good.. NOPE!! due to licensing restictions U CAN'T WATCH THIS..
umm.. NOPE!! due to licensing restictions U CAN'T WATCH THIS..
wow this naruto dvd collections is on deal of the day... "UR A LOSER THAT LIVES IN AUSTRALIA.. I CANT SELL IT TOO U!" crunchyroll says while lauging.

OMG! I can't take it anymore, I pay for membership just like any1 else does.. why do I have to suffer from licensing restrictions. I am being forced to have to download torrents to watch anime or stream anime from sites like animefreak.
I can't even see some nipplige from queens blade rebellion...

Is there any way of overcoming this without having to move to America?
Is there any way of overcoming this without having to illegally download anime?

Sad, but true. It is unfortunate that corporations are permitted to discriminate based on geographic location.

I know how crappy this can be sometimes, alot of the time just cause you are not in the us u cant get access to alot of thing, although I find crunchyroll perfect in canada. If you want a solution to this u can try getting a proxy server in the US (makes u look like you are in us so everything works )

I'm sorry that there are licensing restrictions It is really out of our hands when it comes to licensing. If it was up to us we would like to show everything everywhere. However, there are a lot of legal stuffs to go through and not every country has the same laws and regulations when it comes to streaming content. Please continue on the help thread as you are asking questions on watching anime here:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-10664/the-animemanga-help-thread

I am closing this thread because you are asking personal questions which could be asked in the anime or regular help thread. Also, there have been many responses links to illegal streaming sites which are against the forum rules.

As personal threads are not allowed and links to illegal streaming sites this thread is locked. Also, please see the site rules so that none of your future threads will suffer the same fate here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-406095/crunchyroll-site-forum-rules
