1) Some way of knowing when simulcast shows will have a new episode. Either a countdown clock or a static release date and time for the next episode. Anything would be better than the not-informative-at-all "Coming Soon!"

2) I can only see anime and drama shows. Are there any plans to make "Pop" shows available via the Roku?

Thanks!

1. I think we're working on this for the next release!
2. That's a great question and I'll bug the engineers about it again. Right now you can only watch them properly on the website.

On Roku, it'd be nice to be able to select the subtitles, or none at all, like on the PC client. I've been using black electrical tape to cover up subtitles on Roku -- when I want to practice listening.

In addition to the 720p streaming format that I am always asking/harping on about:

1) Larger font and more space for series/episode description text. There is a ton of unused screenspace in the current App but most descriptions are longer than the App's character limit so they get cut off. Also, the current text size is hard to read when you're sitting across the room on your couch as I'm sure many/most Roku users are sitting.

2) An additional genre catagory for shows that are scheduled for expiration in the near future (or some other easy way to view the list of shows that are going away soon)

Bjaker said he's looking to get an update for us in the near future directly from the person working on the revamp!

Oh yeah, I saw that post a few days ago. Hopefully he'll have something to share with us soon. Although, I'm starting to think that the Roku is a cursed device for Crunchyroll and I'm half-expecting them to get derailed by another obstacle. I'm still hoping for the best though!

Howdy!

So was just speaking with the engineer on this.

THINGS TOO LOOK FORWARD TO.
A completely revamped layout. (More akin to the PS3.)
The ability to select subtitle language in app!
Better seeking capabilities while watching shows! (No more clunky fastforward / rewind by minutes.)
AND, an entirely new type of streaming.

Dare I say... 3 dots? MAYBE 4!!?!

These are the things we're working on!

Best,
-Baker

Thank you for the update! I'm very interested so any new news in greatly appreciated. Plus, it makes the long load times more bearable too. Give that engineer more Mountain Dew so he can work longer/faster!

Yay! I'm looking forward for these updates! I hope the come before 2014 if you guys can!
Although I like the simplistic layout of CR's Roku app, I guess the layout like the PS3 would be beautiful.
Hopefully with the select the subtitle, I hope this might fix that lag on simulcast subtitles. Most of the simulcast titles take an hour or so after airing to have english subitles.
Better seeking would be fabulous!
Can't wait to see more dots on the Roku too!

The new Roku app makes this thread seem like it happened a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away...
