"Availability Information
Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region."


I am starting to get a little bit annoyed with getting this message slammed in my face for a majority of the shows I want to watch. Is CR even trying? It's a shame that they seem to value their American subscribers above EVERYONE else, focusing on getting them licensing right, and then proceeding with getting them new anime, while not giving a damn about the regions that doesn't get it. I've waited over half a year for Isshuukan Tomodachi for example, still unavailible. The same is "Sakura Trick" and "Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun" are among a other few shows I'd want to watch, but why should I be able to, right, CR management? Or EVEN better, Attack on Titan, how long is it since that show aired? Well, I guess pirating isn't a bad option, specially when CR doesn't try nearly enough to stop it.

Thanks CR, for never failing to dissapoint

It would be really RAD of you if you could make it possible for shows that are unavailible AT THE TIME BEING (they will never become availible I guess..) to show up in my queue. So if against ALL odds, someone should start giving a damn about people that doesn't live in the States, I would get notified without having to check 50% of all CR anime, to see if they're availble.

I think you should send a support email to them about this, and they might possibly fix it.

It's not that anything is bugged, it's just that CR doesn't seem to care about getting licenses for other regions than America, specially if the show is not airing.

They would care to, as that means more money from subscribers in that area, but the rights aren't always available to them for various reasons.

I agree to a degree. I run a few anime/anime related groups on the site I try my hardest to watch as many anime's as possible every season to be able to talk to remembers who mention them. As of lately iv been seeing members referring to animes that simply are not available in the US threw crunchyroll. It gives me a hard time connecting to theses members and help build friendships with them and in courage more activity.

I'm not sure what some of these media distributors don't understand about "If you don't make your content available, it will be pirated." For the vast majority of people, you're not preventing them from viewing your content. The only thing you're preventing is the potential profit you could be making off it.

Availability. Availability. Availability. It is like THE buzzword right now. We are TRYING to give you our money, but you're not letting us.

Many of those shows are available from FUNimation, who recently launched a SubPass, which is a lower cost subscription plan for sub-only content.

Actually this has been ongoing for many years. From where I come from, lots of animes are not available due to region blocking. I have been away and inactive from CR for such a long time (years, that is) and when I came back for awhile like now to see how things are going, region blocking is still the same thing that has never changed in this site. I suppose I'm going back to my long slumber of inactivity again and soon...

You're reading it wrong. This:
"Availability Information
Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region."


Says: "We don't want your money anyway, do what you will".

Can't support them if they don't make it available.
