Does anyone have a screenshot of this? I am just curious to see what it looks like as I tried a few videos and didn't see any ads. (I mostly watch on my phone and iPad).

It seems the only way I could get ads to pop up was by logging out of my account and scrolling down while watching a video playing. I tested it quite a few times, logging in and logging out with different videos, with the same results. So I think it might have to do with what browser I'm using perhaps, Firefox? Although, if that were true, I'm not sure why I don't get any ads (never have actually) while I watch a video. Perhaps my account has some kind of setting that prevents ads? Here's a screenshot of a (Kotoura-san) "ad" (I think) that pops up @ the lower right if u scroll down while watching a video (the ad actually disappears if u scroll all the way back up):

Thanks. I've never noticed those before, but I do not watch via the website that often. It isn't as big as some made it sound like, but I can see it being very annoying on people with lower resolution or 4:3 ratio screens.

Well, it's probably more to the respect of what's informally "agreed" with the customers and crunchyroll. It's kind of the "principle of the matter" kind of thing.


To be fair, the premium membership said that ads will no longer show in videos. It doesn't say anything about removing ads from the website. But I understand what you are trying to say.

Wow. I haven't seen the Windows XP blue bar in a while. Thanks for the nostalgia. "LAWL"

I think maybe only some premium accounts are effected, as I'd imagine more people would have complained by now, and I still find it bizaare why the ads won't show up if I log in, but they show up if I log out. Perhaps some kind of special glitch that some premium members have.

I thought you were referring to the pop-up ad being discussed in this thread or the banners on the home page. I was referring to the actual video commercials that show up in the video stream, like how Hulu does it.

There's ads on the forums? I don't see them, and I frequent here a lot. That's partially why I got the membership too because the interstial can get annoying. I hope that they don't start doing that.

As for the front page, that I can understand.

Not the forum, the website. As in the actual page where you watch a video on, like in the screen shot that suikojay provided. See at the bottom right of his screen shot the pop up ad advertising a Kotoura-san poster for $8.99?

Never mind. Looks like that the original complaint has been resolved. Well, until the next inquiry.

Nice talking to you.
