Hey guys, haven't looked whether there was a topic available to discuss this here (my bad), but I'm seriously annoyed that there is no native app for LG smart TV's.

To CR mods / owners / developers, can you not get onto it and provide an app? Sick of connecting my laptop up to my TV / switching on my loud ass Xbox to watch anime.

If I can get Netflix / Lovefilm, I should be able to get CR. Anything in the pipeline?

Rant over. Just annoyed, because I'm sure there's an app on Panasonic / Samsung...

PLEASE!

Moved to the Suggestions / Feedback forum in the Help section, as that's where CR support looks for this kind of suggestion to pass along to the people who make the decisions.

I can't speak to Lovefilm (although I understand it is now owned by Amazon, which would give it access to serious resources), but Netflix would probably be running on your toaster if it had a screen and an internet connection.

Right, well if you look at the range of apps already available, I am surprised that there is no native app. Every app I am able to use (even sky via Now TV which must use some version of silver light) on xbox, PC and android is available on LG's platform, bar a CR app. Perhaps trial something for premium members and see how it goes? Has something been tried yet?

I'd really love an app to the LG tv aswell, I don't want to pay another months subscription just so i can watch it from my xbox.
And since i live with my parents i can't move my PC into the living room just like that, and a 22" screen compared to 55" is a pretty big difference.

I would love to see CR app on my LG DVD player's smart app line-up. That would be a great addition to my Netflix membership. I think CR is slow in making their app available to certain devices--if you have noticed that CR releases their app to popular devices--especially big brand names. I am not sure why they cannot make it any easier for us, LG device owners. I own LG TV and LG DVD player.

If you've seen a CR app on a Sony smart TV, it isn't a native app:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/devices

As you will note, only Panasonic and Samsung are listed.

Some TVs and devices have a third party CR app by Flingo (on my WDTV LIve, it one of many channels listed under their "Launchpad" app), but even if your LG has that, it doesn't support login.


"Even Roku" makes it sound like an afterthought. Keep in mind Roku has been around before smart TVs existed, and CR's app for it has been around since December 2010.
