Anyone ever use the Netflix app on the 360? There used to be, or still is, the ability to stream to your friends and watch the same show at the same time.

I think CR should do something like that for members that pay. It would be cool to watch the same show with a buddy at the same time.

This could also help with the people who cant get some shows in their country. For instance, I can get all of the shows in the US. Now lets say a friend of mine wants to watch an anime that can't be streamed in their country yet. We could join the same Theater and watch it together off of my stream.

Then there would be a live chat feature so you can chat about what's going on and talk to each other. Not like the guest book.

No...
You make your situation more complicated then what is actually is.

Just pull up CR and press play at the exact same moment as your friend. If you want to live chat, use Skype- video chat, voice chat, & text chat.

Yeah I get that, but you can't do that- doesn't currently exist legally. So I'm telling you an alternative solution.

Netflix still does it or used to do it on the 360.

I don't recall ever seeing this in the 360 app.

This would circumvent regional restrictions, and therefore be a bad idea for CR to implement this themselves, as they do not have the rights to broadcast in those regions.

It must not still be around. Well, it was in the 360 Netflix app when it was first released.

"Theater Mode" was taken down after a dashboard update on the Xbox 360. Apparently, the mode conflicted with the new code from the dashboard and it would cost too much money to recreate. When the feature WAS available I'd use it on a daily basis, it was a sad day indeed when it was taken away.

I think a similar mode for Crunchyroll would be great, as I would enjoy watching shows not only with my IRL friends with voice chat, but with my friends i made on crunchy through a chatbox. The netflix app was great as it'd auto sync whatever we watched, it was a amazing feature when everyone had good connection.If it was on Crunchy I feel like it would be revolutional for the anime community, because for the first time it would be really easy to connect, meet and watch shows with people. ( Not to mention Crunchy already as an almost social networking like infrastructure.)
