So on the article of captain earth on Crunchyroll you can read that Captain Earth should be available in Scandinavia, but i can't watch it... When I search for Captain Earth it says that it's not available in my region! But again, it clearly says that it's available in Scandinavia!

So obviously my question is, why can't i watch it?

See my reply here for a possible reason and solution:

The ISO code for Sweden (se) is also listed. (That will make sense when you read the other message).

I live in Sweden and I have absolutely no problems what so ever watching Captain Earth.

Another item to check is if CR recognizes your location properly. You can do that by clicking the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any page, scrolling down to the bottom of the page it will bring up, and checking "Detected Country:". If it is incorrect, try logging out and logging back in.

Out of curiousity, what language do you have set for the CR website?

I have the same problem, and I live in Sweden as well. I followed your instructions, and yes, I can watch Captain Earth if I set the language to French. But it can't be that I have to watch it with french subs is it? That's ridiculous, since French is a very small language in Sweden and few people understand it, while everyone understand English.

I'm thinking that with some of these series, CR had the choice of either omitting a region or country, or going with what language(s) they could license for it.

Hopefully someone from CR will come along and confirm whether that is the case or not.

Yes, that is probably the case. It's really strange though, I have watched anime on CR for years and I can't remember this ever happening before. Which is a good thing I guess... Still I suppose it is better than nothing, at least for the three or so french speaking swedes who figure out they are supposed to change the language setting.

Well. Same case with denmark. Contacted support and i was told it was still being unlocked.. And it still is it seems since i still can't access it. And seems to be repeating itself with the coffin princess.. Says it is available in Denmark yet.. told it's restricted. Sounds like some odd snafu..

I had the same problem. I could only watch Captain Earth when I switched to French. But now they've fixed it. I just watched the episode with English subs. Maybe it's also fixed for Scandinavia now.
