hello
i saw on the premium subscription offers that a subscription offer to the user the ability to play the video on 480 P but even while being a free user i can apparently play the video without being redirected to the subscription page
is this a bug or did 480 p become available for free users

Ah, it varies a little. From http://www.crunchyroll.com/help?topic=premium_member:

In addition to standard definition, you may also enjoy High Definition (HD) 1080p and 720p-quality videos as well as Enhanced Definition (ED) 480p-quality videos for early-access (Simulcast) shows, as well as back-catalog episodes.


If it's on a simulcast, Premium gets 480p during the early access week (along with all other resolutions).. after that, free members should be able to watch SD and 480p, but not the 1080 / 720p that the premium members still get.

Are there specific episodes you can list where you're seeing this issue?

Thanks!
