I recently purchased a WD TV Live based on the fact that Crunchyroll is available for it, as I needed a nice small box to hook up to hotel TVs when I'm on the road, but I can't seem to find the Crunchyroll app on it, and it says that it should be preinstalled, according to Crunchyroll's website. Help?

The CR app on the WD TV live isn't from CR itself, but rather from Flingo. You will find it among the services listed in Launchpad app.

Please note the Flingo app does not support login, and thus does not give access to premium features. It would be nice if CR made this clear in their listing, as the Roku (which does have a native CR app) is a much better choice for premium members.

Are there any plans for an official crunchyroll app for the WD TV? Premium features are a big thing for me, and I think the WD TV is a better media device in general, though the Roku obviously has more thrd-party support.

There aren't any plans that I'm aware of, but Bjaker or some other member of the CR staff could speak more to that.

I'm not aware of the procedure for getting a channel on the WD TV, but my impression is that it isn't as straightforward and easy as on the Roku. If that is correct, that would be another disincentive for CR providing a native app (aside from the WD TV's smaller market share vs. the Roku).

That is disappointing. I thought they were going to offer an app for the live tv as well... very disappointing
