It's probably both, honestly. I could be wrong, though, and I'm man enough to admit it if/when I'm proven wrong.

For all of those complaining about lack of EU region apps....contact your lawmakers and tell them to fix the laws that make it so difficult for Crunchyroll to release apps in that region in the first place.

Don't have any problems with EU lawmakers myself. At least, not any problems that I don't also have with my own country's lawmakers....


Yet the issue is clearly not with the EU since they had no issue releasing the Android and other Apps over here, It's more then likely Sony being an arrogant pain as usual. Yet I don't see why it's a problem since there's not been an real issues lately that would stop an EU version of this app so either its just stuck on a waiting list or Crunchyroll is doing something with it.

What a surprise, no info on why the rest of the world doesn't get the app. Why do I still subscribe to this website when it is so North American biased? If only the people who posted these news messages were even half as helpful as the tech support chaps then things around here would be a whole lot better.

Sounds like I need to do some research on the subject before commenting further....

I agree it probably is actually more Sony than lawmakers. It could still just be the way the laws are written or whatever.......but I'm not gonna say it's 100% certain until I have enough evidence to back up such a claim (assuming I can find any evidence whatsoever...)

Not anything to do with the law as their is a 360 version available here in the UK which I've used once or twice before the awful UI caused me to return to this website to watch my shows.

What annoys me is the lack of any information from CR as to why the rest of the world hasn't received this app.

However you've failed to point out any specific laws or legislation that is relevant to a reason why it would be delayed or not released at all. You're whole statement for the issue being the EU's fault is incredibly vague. But as you've said you don't have any evidence I'll take it as is. I am not well versed myself on the Trade laws around the EU but as a UK customer I've rarely ever seen EU laws play a majority role in stopping digital products from being released unless there is incredibly good reason behind it which is why I find it much more likely to believe the Issue is with Sony being slow at verifying the product and publishing it.

However Crunchyroll has neither confirmed they are even attempting to release a EU app so it's probably best to wait for some sort of official information from them on weather they are or aren't and if so, what the hold up is.

Truth be told, I was more or less going by what others have told me. I place too much trust in other people sometimes :|

I somehow doubt there'll be a European release. We're still waiting for the PlayStation 3 app, after all. Tis a joke
