first off, I love crunchyroll. i've been using this service happily for awhile now. even when i was in Japan, i used crunchyroll remotely from my pc in US. I recently got back from Japan (two weeks ago) and when I turned on crunchyroll on AppleTV, it seemed to be little sluggish. this week, video would take 5min to restart after lagging out. is this a known issue? are there any sort of fix i should try? i've already done, testing modem, router, router settings, and AppleTV. it seems the only thing having issues is crunchyroll app. if anybody can help, please let me know!

It's a known issue. It's been like that for a week now... It's been reported, but Crunchyroll has been pretty mum in regards to the details (if they have anybody looking it, and when if ever they might have a fix).

Same here, and I'm seeing on this forum that others are having issues on PS3/4, Vita, iPad and others.

2 days ago I was able to watch a video (recent episode of Blue Spring Ride) fine at 5:00PM but had to leave at the 7 minute mark. Got back to it at 11:00PM and had to load every 2 minutes. Some of the loads required that I leave the video and restart it.

Yesterday I was trying to watch the latest Hunter x Hunter at 11:00PM and had the same issues.

Watching on the website I had some stutters at 1080p as well. Some videos required that I switched to 720p.

I've also been having streaming issues with complete cessation of streaming or up to 5 minutes of streaming cessation before the video resumes on both the iPad and the Apple TV. I hope there's a planned fix for this; this is my first month of premium subscription and I doubt I'll continue paying a monthly fee for such an inconsistent service if it's not.

Going to try it on the ps4 and see if that's better. Otherwise I guess ill have to resume watching it on hulu. I'd rather not get interrupted in the middle of an episode even if I do have to put up with ads :-/

Seems to only happen at night. 11pm est or later. Any video I watch during the day is fine, and video I watch at night is unwatchable on Apple TV.

This issue isn't specific to any one platform. It seems to happen on most apps and even the site itself. It does seem to happen much more often at night though.

I have an Apple TV and have been having issues for the past week or so also. If i try to play newly updated episodes the quality is super poor and won't clear up. Also, sometimes it won't play at all and I have to watch it on my computer. Annoying. The whole reason i pay is so i can watch it on my AppleTV without streaming it through my computer, but thats what i had to do for both SAO and Irregular at Magic High School yesterday.

If it is only new episodes doing that, try waiting an hour or so before trying to watch. The higher resolution enodes for the subs in your language just aren't ready yet.

I been noticing this problem mainly with the newest episodes. All the older ones seem to work fine. I do see some hiccups but not as bad as the newer series. I thought it was my apple tv but Netflix doesn't seem to lag as bad as Crunchyroll which buffers every 30 seconds to 5 minutes...this is really disappointing. (It's not my Internet either. Because my laptop works beautifully but connecting it to the TV when I have an apple tv is pretty much defeating the reason why I got the apple tv)
