I just became a member of CR and I was wondering why isn't English dubs an option? Netflix has a couple of animes but you still have an option to have dub anime on or off on almost all of them. This video service has nothing but anime and I can't even get English dubs for Gurren Lagann. So is there a way to turn on/off English dubs but I just can't find it or CR simply doesn't support English dubs? I thought this anime video service had English translated anime because that was the main reason why I became a premium member.

These are the only anime dubbed they have.

This site is mostly for current anime from Japan with a legal way to watch them with sub, other than fansubs.

Being as some of these anime are currently airing in Japan, there are no dubs of them yet.

And things like Gurren Lagann that may have dubs, are owned by other companies, CR only got the rights to sub them when it aired and gets to keep that on the site.

I imagine it's to do with licensing restrictions.

Most Dubs of anime are done by Funimation or other similar companies which they release on Blu-ray or have them available on their sites. Since Crunchyroll only obtains the streaming rights to anime, they cannot publish the anime. Also there's region restrictions to take into account as well.
