So as the title says, I cannot seem to watch Absolute Duo. I am from the Netherlands, so according to the announcement message I should be able to watch it, but for some reason i cannot.

Accodring to the RSS page, the country code of "nl" is indeed included, so something in your environment must be not detecting you as that, or the language you have selected as preferred is not available to you there.

Go to the contact page: /help?topic=contact , and scroll almost to the bottom to find where it says "Detected Country" in light gray.

If that doesn't say Netherlands

then try clearing your cookies and try again, as you perhaps have visited another country where it was restricted, possibly, and stored somthing incorrectly.

If it did say Netherlands...

then go here /acct/?action=video and try setting that to various alternate languages one at a time to see if the show now appears after one of those changes. If this is the case, then CR simply cannot provide subs in the language you prefer. For instance, if Funimation has English rights, then CR cannot sub the shows in english even if they are only available to view outside the US.

You should be able to watch it (with German, French or Spanish subs).

Do you get a "not available in your region" notice? If so, can you screenshot it for me?

Can you see it if you switch the site language to German?


(Direct link to the episode should probably work: /absolute-duo/episode-1-667793)

It's a bit counterintuitive, but the videos that the site shows you don't change at all depending on your preferred language setting. What matters is the language you're using for the website at the moment (you can change it in the footer). Only after loading the video will the preferred language setting matter for which subtitles you're served by default.

If you don't want to change your language every time, browse the latest episodes using the homepage. It isn't filtered as long as you're using the site in English or your country's language.

They recently added a subtitle-only subscription plan for as little as $3.33/month: http://www.funimation.com/blog/2015/01/09/new-funimation-streaming-service-subpass-now-available/.
