Why would streaming dubs be so much more expensive than streaming the Japanese versions? I don't believe the OP was asking why CR doesn't actually put money into dubbing an anime.

Because dubs don't already exist for shows that are just now premiering in Japan (in 99.9% of cases), so since CR focuses on streaming titles as they air in Japan, it's not really feasible to offer dubs for most of the properties they license.

Also it should be noted, that CR gets a lot of stuff that never gets released outside of Japan, as well, so we're lucky we don't have to resort to fan subs, on some not so safe site.

However I do wish they would show dubs for anime that already have dubs.

They already have to pay to license the subbed anime and in some cases the dubbed, the U.S dubbing studios have their own streaming services with the exception of Aniplex, I think. Generally the dubbing studios want people to use their sites or Hulu to watch the dubbed anime because it provides the cash directly to the studio itself, other than Hulu of course.

The best bet is to do Hulu for general all anime, while you will have to put up with ads still, it still has the most anime out of anyone. Funimation has their own site and apps and Sentai uses TAN or Hulu to stream their stuff, Viz Media has most of their older stuff and some newer stuff on Neon Alley which is free, but generally most of it is subbed, which doesn't apply to this situation.

In some cases the licensed dubbed anime or expired licensed anime can be found legally on youtube or so i've heard.

The Animax Dub of CardCaptor Sakura is much better the crappy version Nelvana dubbed back in Toonami imo at least it's uncut now.
