Ok so ive been watching several anime's.... but everytime i log in and watch... the video's load at dial up speeds. The worst ever video upload speeds i have ever experienced especially since im paying for this shit service. I keep having to reload the page for it to play. The player sucks and the streams are so slow I have decided i will pirate all my episodes instead of paying for this shit service. The whole experience is a sham. I feel my money has been pick pocketed.

It might just be your internet connection. You need well over a 3mbps to even think about loading videos in 720p. I suggest you do a speedtest and if it doesn't go near 3mbps, you should probably cancel your subscription.

If it's not an issue with the internet, it's an issue with your computer. Even in that case, unless you can upgrade your computer or upgrade your internet, you should probably cancel your subscription.

I've had experiences with Crunchy roll on slow internet speeds, it's usually horrible even at SD. I'm in college now and they provide around 3MBPS~4MBPS of internet speed to students which is good enough for whatever you gotta do on the internet. (Yeah, my old place had .5 MBPS internet... it was horrid. xD)

Sounds like it's just your internet connection.

Once there was an episode that wouldn't load no matter how many times I refreshed and tried after a day or two but that's it. I think CrunchyRoll is great, I'm sorry you don't enjoy it as much as the rest of us

CR is the worst? Really? Clearly someone hasn't tried Funimation's site.

It seems more like a site traffic more than internet connection. CR needs to expand.

Try using a different DNS server. Last week I switched from my default ISP to OpenDNS and went from not able to stream SD to being able to stream 1080P without any issues.

I too have a problem with CR on my PC. It's totally fine when I use my PS3 but whenever I use the website it stalls frequently.

You may actually have a virus or something on your computer. I know, people hate to be told it's their computer, but in this case it is.

I haven't had any problems loading videos today at all on any of my devices.

Computer, Laptop, Roku 2, Android Tab 2, or my Samsung Galaxy S4.

If you can, I would recommend you to do a full 100% wipe of your computer and do a fresh install of your OS on a fresh partition.
