There isn't much on CR that's dubbed. They license the raw videos hot off the air in Japan, and usually get the scripts to be able to populate the subs, but they don't have it in their budget to pay a team of actors to dub them. They've been picking up about 20+ shows per season lately. By contrast, Funimation usually gets and processes about four, and the dubs for those come much later.

About all they have is some catalog (older) titles that already were dubbed by someone else, and there aren't too many of them. See this thread for those: /forumtopic-788825/crs-english-dubbed-anime

You'll have to get those from Viz. I know Naruto and Shippuden are on Hulu, so I imagine the dub is available through that service as well.

What!?!?!?

I thought Crunchyroll had an agreement with Funimation as well as some other companies allowing them to stream their dubbed versions, but they were only available to premium (or premium trial) accounts? Is this completely wrong? It was one of the main reasons I started my premium account.

Funimation's dubbed content exists on their channel on our sister service VRV, which also has Crunchyroll as a channel.

Is VRV a different subscription than Crunchyroll? Does having a Crunchyroll subscription get you a cheaper price on VRV? (Baisically, how do I get in on it?)
I know very little.

VRV is available only in the U.S. (go to vrv.co not vrv.com)

https://help.vrv.co/hc/en-us/sections/202577786-FAQs

If you already have a premium Crunchyroll account you can link it to VRV to get premium access to the Crunchyroll channel on VRV but not to any of the other VRV channels.

If you instead subscribe directly via VRV, there's a $9.99 per month package that includes all the VRV channels. That's cheaper than the combined monthly rate if you subscribed to Crunchyroll and Funimation separately. (You don't have to buy the package, you can buy individual channels, but that would add up to more once you have two or three channels.)

The link works the other way around too though, so if you cancel your subscription on Crunchyroll and purchase that package on VRV, you can link the accounts and will be able to access your Crunchyroll account on the Crunchyroll site as premium also without paying more.

As far as I know, just the US. I know they are working on expanding it to other regions, but we don't know when or exactly how it will roll out.
