Understandable haha, I don't know to much about EU laws myself but I've never heard about the EU preventing any sort of legitimate Online products to be distributed throughout the EU unless it breaks several major EU trading laws such dodgy contracts that don't inform the users properly or breaking Copyright.

I was a bit skeptical as to say that it may be Copyright laws that would prevent the App being released in EU but as far as I'm aware the EU isn't as strict as America when it comes to Copyright (Don't take me up on this I'm likely wrong) and since Crunchyroll already has it service in the EU through its website it shouldn't effect the App since the App is only a portal to the same content servers that the website uses and doesn't store the content for long term use so I'll stick to what I said before about either Sony just being slow at publishing the App or Crunchyroll has yet to submit an EU version of the app (Possibly because they're sorting out the regional restrictions on the shows?) as they've never confirmed they have.

Unfortunately this has nothing to do with UK/European laws or even to do with PSN and Sony and everything to do with Crunchyroll themselves. Crunchyroll has always been US focused as a company, all it's back catalog deals are for US only they primarily license Anime for a US market, but IF the they can secure rights for other regions it's a secondary factor.

The Same goes with all of it's Apps. You can get Apps from Crunchyroll on Android, Apple OS, Samsung Blu-ray players/tv's, Roku Because when you publish your App on these systems/markets it's released automatically worldwide. I.e Anyone anywhere in the world can access the app itself.

Psn has a store per region to help tailor content for each country, If you want an App to appear in another country's psn you have to pay for it to appear there or publish it for each region. Depending on the App this means paying more than once or a larger fee for all territories. (also i think sony has a requirement that any app thats published in the EU has to have a multiple language option? )

But basically what it boils down to is Crunchyroll doesn't care about any market outside of the US. So don't expect it to happen.... Ever. No Ps3 App, No ps4 App, No PsVita app... I mean hey there's only higher sales for sony stuff in europe than the US, who need's the extra revenue right?

Sorry Having a crap day today. Made even worse by the new's of the one App i've been waiting/wishing for Ages to come out for my Ps VIta is now not available, with no news that it is even going to be released for where i live in the UK.

Stuff like this actually makes me re-think paying for my subscription. Only problem is there's no where else i can go to get my fix. Im a junkie stuck with the same dealer :(
