While reading the pros of becoming a premium member I saw that you could stream crunchyroll on the PS3. However I went to try it out today and the app is no where to be found. As you can imagine this makes me some what sad because that was the one of the major things that won me over. I will carry on the trial but unless someone can tell me where I can get the app for the PS3 I will just remain disappointed that this feature was advertised to me but I am unable to access it.

The app has to be downloaded from the PSN store thingy.

I looked and it wasn't there. Will look again though. :(

*Edit*

Yup not there at all for me.

I am in the UK so not sure if this app is for the US only. If that is the case it wasn't nice adverising it and then not having it for UK users.

After a quick Google search, it looks like the app was unavailable in the UK as of March 31, 2013: /forumtopic-796485/ps3-app-for-uk

I'm not going to make a US PSN just to have the app. If it isn't avablie for UK they shouldn't advertise that it is. That is classed as false advertisment.

If you can jump through the hoops of setting up a US PSN account, you can download it from that profile but use it on any profile on the same PS3.

I wasn't going to bother, but as both the Xbox and Roku apps have issues, I needed an armchair alternative (read: not watching at the computer) that didn't involve an iOS device AirPlay streaming to XBMC. (Which does actually work quite well)

yesss its totally mindboggling as to why you cant download it here. like someone mentioned in another thread - all the anime we get on that app even after downloading it from a us account is just the anime that's licensed over here, so i dont really get what the problem is ...

We have still not released in Europe. It is on our road map though.
Apologies for any inconvenience.

The confusing thing is that it works fine. Well, at least there are no additional problems other than the console hang that they get in America anyway.

I don't know where you live, but, uhh, no...it doesn't.

The two main issues I'm having are the "episode scrolling" one and for me anyway, (and NO. IT'S NOT MY SYSTEM OR MY INTERNET). Just like somebody else's comment I read, I can't seem to use the app for more than about forty-five minutes before it glitches and boots me back to the PS3 main screen.

Some people have no issues with the app, others do.
45 mins of playback is 2 episodes.
Known memory leak issue that can start as early as 2 or 3 episodes, or kick in later.
It's being addressed in the patch we're working on.
