Every time i try to watch an episode of any show, the following happens:

The stream begins to lag, i have to pause and wait a few minutes for it to catch up or download more.

The video ends pre-maturely, switching to the next episode.

This is getting especially annoying. I pay monthly to enjoy seemless streams, which are not so seemless.

I would be willing to pay $10-$15/month if that would be what it would take for you to get faster stream speeds.

I love Crunchy, but seriously, I'm fed up with this!

I have a superfast Verizon FIOS connection and we have the 50mb down/25 up plan. Trying to convince dad to boost it to 75.

I just want to watch anime, but find i am unable to enjoy it because this keeps happening.

Now only to convince other users here to pay that much who most likely have worse internet connections, let alone the majority of anime fans who don't feel compelled to pay anything to rightfully stream anime.

Like any business, CR has to operate within certain price ranges to attract and keep customers coming back.

1) This isn't a server issue
2) we know
3) there are a huge list of fixes in the works
4) your bandwidth isn't the solution here, although kudos for the super fatpipe.


Fixes are soon to be in the pipe

It's not a server issue? :/ Odd....
Interesting, as I've had plenty of issues with buffering, cutting out early.. and stopping completely as well.
I also have very nice internet (180Mb/s up/30Mb/s down) and I would really appreciate whatever is causing the problems to be fixed.

I'm not upset at CR, and while I have submitted a few reports.. I never follow through the basic troubleshooting.. as frankly.. I'm tired of wasting my time following such simple procedures to check what's wrong. Ping times are low.. the tracert's are fine.. my packet loss is none.. my PC is perfectly capable of streaming 1080.. By all standards I should be flying high.. and I am.. on everything but CR. :(

If there is something being done, I would love to know about it.

Ya, same here. For about the past week I've been getting issues, now these issues can only steam from a bad route, or router server side, or saturation on crunchyroll's part.
I wasn't having issues 2 weeks ago unless the site was under super heavy load.
What changed in the past 2 weeks that the system admins committed to system?
The new additional SUBS breaking stuff or what?
Or did they move the content servers and remove regional support servers?
