Someone commented that it was imminent since North America has it.

Actually, it is also available to South America:

Keep in mind that unlike Microsoft, Sony operates their PSN stores independently, meaning there is no "submit once, publish everywhere" option. Despite being available for quite a while now, the PS3 app apparently still hasn't moved on from its original regional availability.

Thanks for informing me about South America. I am aware of Sony operating its stores independently. Regardless of all that I want to have access to Crunchyroll on Sony platforms in the UK

Indeed....


And that can get severely frustrating when it comes to things like game/software patches. One region can have bugfixes several days, or weeks, ahead of another. Even if it an identical patch for the identical game.

In the meantime I would suggest getting chromecast, only like $30 from Best Buy. I watch all my crunchy anime on my tv through that, you can use your laptop or tablet etc, anything you have connected to your wifi.

I've already said this in an older post about the PS4 but this one seems active so I'll say it again, Animax's collection of anime is atrociously small compared to Crunchy, so as far as real competition is involved...there isn't any. I find it perplex that Crunchyroll wouldn't wanna push this harder given the massive advantage in sales PS4 has over XboxOne, but we don't know the business issues they're having, so all we can do is hope :/

If Animax has an exclusivity deal with Sony, which is what the rumors suggest based on launch announcements, then it's not solely up to CR whether or not they can release a PS4 app.

Aye, you're probably right on that front, but if Animax has an exclusivity deal with Sony, why does it only effect Europe and not America? after all the exclusivity deal rumour is based on a press conference, but they made no reference to region within that press conference, only that they had a deal with Sony to do with streaming on their PS4. My hopes is that if it is an exclusivity deal, it'll be temporary.
