I am unable to watch anime on my Xbox360 through crunchyroll without Xboxlive Gold

Please fix this, I can watch it on PS3 without Playstation Plus so why do I need Xboxlive Gold?

Any apps or the ability the game online and use things like that require an Xbox Live Gold account. Think of it as a premium membership on here, you don't get everything if you don't pay for it.

I pay for the crunchyroll premium service already, I can watch it on Sony's version of Silver membership aka it doesn't require
Playstation Plus so Why do I need Xboxlive Gold...

Because Xbox is Xbox, having gold is the only way to use streaming apps. Soon the playstaion will be the same when they switch over to paid memberships. The only blunt reason to tell you is that they need to make money and if you want to use streaming apps and play online you need to pay for Xbox Gold. Plain cut and dry.

It is Microsoft's policy that requires Xbox live Gold membership to use any video streaming app. Unfortunately, CR has no say in that.

It is more of Microsoft to blame instead of Crunchyroll. Same things go with Netfilx, Hulu, Manga etc. You need to have a gold account to be able to use the apps.
