"Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region." ... really ? Really ? I pay for animes, and still can't watch it just because I live in a shithole of a country that has no laws on this matter whatsoever. Can someone please at least explain the divine mechanics that disable me from watching certain series ?

I always thought that was a little of a bummer. If people pay for a service, they should be allowed to view it. If not, a nice little discount sounds appropriate. I am sure there is a "simple" explanation that involves laws and whatnot. Sorry to hear that, dude!

Hey there, I renamed your thread since nobody here wants you to die, also this matches the problem better :P
Licensing is the reason why. When CR buys a anime rights, they have to buy the rights for each region. Obviously each region costs more money, so sometimes picking & choosing is needed based on how many people show interest for X show from X region.
I'm sorry they didn't get the show you wanted where you wanted it :C

heh, sorry but that won't work.
You should still have a fairly good list of shows to watch =)
Also, you're a premium member =)

If you go there you can recommend shows you'd like CR to get, and then just list your region also =)

Kill la Kill should be available for more regions through Daisuki.net than CR currently has (it's pretty great, by the way).

Yea I've just tried to watch Kill La Kill after hearing good things but it's not available in my region (UK). With no more episodes of Attack on Titan i'm struggling to find a reason to carry on paying for premium

Unfortunately it is all about licensing, which I am not sure how much control CR actually has over that. Since CR is based primarily in the states as far as I know, they are going to get US licenses easier than any European license.
