Does CR have any plans on releasing their streams beyond the US? I have people from ******* saying the reason they download their releases is because they cannot get support from here.

CR actually tries to get as many regions as they can when they purchase the rights to stream a show. Many of CR's programs as a result are available outside of the US, for example CR can stream Attack on Titan in some parts of Europe too.

The issue you run into is that for each region you wish to stream to this raises the cost of acquiring the show, additionally the rights to the show may simply not be available due to a number of reasons. Maybe that region already has a different company that owns exclusive streaming rights for it, maybe that region just has rules against online video streaming of anime, maybe the shows creators just doesn't want to sell a regions rights. It is just a very complex process and sometimes you can't win.

You can bank on one thing though, if the CR team thinks they have enough people in a given region who want to watch a show, they can get those rights, and it won't be prohibitively expensive to do so, CR will get em!!!

Also as an aside... for obvious reasons please don't name the things I edited out of your post

Hello. I do want to watch legal anime and not from the torrents. Unfortunately, my country is not one of those "copyright blessed" ones... I am ready to engage a proxy to watch what I want. Any suggestions? Please?

Using a proxy means you're gaining access to content that we do not have the rights to stream in your country.
