So my friend lent me his Naruto(originalseries) dvd box sets. and i was comparing them to the CR stream quality here

it's vastly different!

THe DVDS are near blu ray quality while CR is like watching it on youtube?

why is that???

Presumably because CR licenses from broadcast distributors not retail, and Naruto was broadcast in 480p.

I don't know either of these things for certain but that'd be my guess. Rurouni Kenishin is also 480p.

Cause for whatever reason, the only available stream quality CR has is 480p. Compared to the DVDs which are most likely being upscaled to 720p by your DVD/Blu-ray player.
