Sweet! Time to re watch the first 3 seasons of digimon! If we're lucky maybe crunchyroll will get Digimon Adventure Tri film series when that comes out.

Would rather have Digimon subbed, but dubbed is ok, I originally fell in love with the dub on Saturday mornings.

Can we get catalogue titles not locked to Us and Canada? There are plenty of other people funding the site you know?

I'm sure the folks at Crunchyroll would love to broadcast their entire catalog to everyone in the world. But that's not how this industry works. Just because a show has been dubbed or subbed in English, does not mean that it can be broadcast to any country that speaks or reads English. Companies have to pay licensing (and other) fees to distribute media in different territories. Because Crunchyroll is an American company (as are most of the studios that license and dub/sub anime), no one outside of America should feel slighted. Some of you should be more thankful for the large catalog that IS available to you (and because these companies are always trying to expand into other territories). You can't build Rome in a day, so be patient folks.

In other news, extremely excited about the Digimon seasons. I hope CR will pick up the rights to the new series.


It's hard not to feel slighted when CR asks you to pay slightly more than the Americans for a lot less service and then continuously announces stuff that excludes Europe.

I know it's not their fault, but it's frustrating.

You do have a point. And in the case of Digimon it does get a bit more complicated when you take into account who is behind the series. For one thing, Toei are rather precious about their properties, it seems. On top of that, this is the dubbed version and the rights to that currently sit with Saban Brands.

Doing a quick bit of digging, the Digimon dubs are acquired through Cinedigm whose other CR shows are all also unavailable here in the UK.

A quick bit more searching turns up that they deal with VOD content from various companies, including Saban. They appear to be North America only, meaning that they don't have the rights to these specific shows elsewhere.
Similar things are true for the Aniplex dubs, I guess. In that the dubbed audio version (and the whole show, in the case of Madoka) is likely licensed directly from Aniplex of America - who do have the NA distribution rights. But the shows are licensed in other English-speaking territories by other companies (Manga, Anime Limited, Madman, etc) and I suspect that being able to stream the dubbed version is tied into who holds the home rights.

Devil's Advocate aside, though...
You have to understand how this appears to members outside America, especially paid subscribers.

"Here are a lot of new shows... that you can't watch most of!"

When a lot of regionally-restricted shows or additions are announced in rapid succession, it can feel like a real kick in the teeth to international members. Doubly so if you're a paid subscriber.

Yes, we're technically only paying for the service, and we do get the same features for our premium membership. But it still stings like hell when there are multiple announcements about shows that our fellow subscribers can watch but we, though a mere fluke of geography, can't.

Especially in the case of Digimon 02. ;-)
After all, the whole point of the Digital World Tour arc is that in a Digital World, boundaries and borders mean precisely naff-all.

Yes, I'm a Digimon fan. :-P
And, yes, this stings. Especially because this is pretty much the only anime where I have a particular soft-spot for the Dub, even though I'm a confirmed sub-lover.
