Yes its me again, i watch netflix in full HD no problems, Hulu , no problems

I watch cr and i have problems on even crappy definition.

The ONLY reason i keep this service is because you have up to date anime, and there is no way around that , even if you show me skipping , gross buffering and cutting anime. I still pay 7 bucks a month for it. Why oh why dont you update servers. I mean cr is based in florida right? i live about 40 miles from base and you yet have updated your servers to where i can watch shit quality anime without buffering???? Its almost crazy..... Im trying to watch something, and i get a buffer message meanwhile my connection should be able to load the whole season in under 30 mins, something is seriously wrong and its pissing me off, you need to get your people and fix this crap. I dont see you losing customers but the customers happiness will run out. Thats the power you have though being the only good anime stream that we have.


TLDR fix your streaming service its a disgrace to people who use your service

I've had my crunchyroll account for around 5 months and i stream on both my 360 and ps4 and I have had very few problems other than occasional skipping on the 360 and VERY low resolution within 10 minutes after an episodes release so I really have no idea whats wrong. Maybe it's just you? :/

CR is based in San Francisco.

The last information I have is that they use Akamai as their CDN for Flash streams, and Limelight networks CDN for devices. Those services, of course, have servers in various locations across the globe.

The problem appears to be regional. Some people like me (in the mid-south US) rarely have problems, other people (some of which seem to be in large population centers in southern California, others overseas) seem to have them frequently.

I feel CR definitely gives priority depending on both your server and how old the anime is, I use a macbook and anything older than this season does not stream worth a damn. However my app on a shared ipad is always fine.

I'm in Texas (Dallas area). It's been an issue on devices since some point in October, not long after they said they were about to make changes that would have broken the Boxee app if they kept it available. Dunno if that's a coincidence or not, but it has only been worse in the months since then.
