*shrugs*

I'm on a bog-standard non--plus Premium subscription and I don't see a problem with this.

For one thing, from the moment they announced reshuffling the membership tiers they put "Early Access to Beta Test New Features" as one of the Premium+ benefits. So it's not as if this is unexpected unfair treatment.

And much as I often like being able to early-access test unpolished systems (I'm a tech-geek, it goes with the territory...) sometimes even I want to just sit back and let other people work their way through the most egregious issues with anything new.

And this sort of phased-rollout makes perfect sense. Putting aside the user-feedback aspect, it allows them to test out a new system with real-world users and see the impact of running it in the wild before having it go under a full system load.


That is the reason I quit the xbox preview program but I regretted it later. I do agree it stated clearly that premium plus would get early beta access. However i feel like they should have done an alpha with premium+ and then a short beta with premium, because they are missing out on a lot of their members feedback who watch the anime and have a subscription. Personally I like the way funi does it with it being sorted by days but I can see the whole week. I like that the crunchyroll countdown on front page is detailed with times. I wouldn't mind a premiere calendar but personally i think a calendar is not neccesary. I do think it would be useful for OVAs and manga that are not on a regular schedule. Also I liked the suggestion that it could be integrated with google calendar. I would just look at my phone to figure it out and not actually look at the calendar.

Wonderful. Could we try to fix this at the same time?

As a Faroese user, seeing this shit is really annoying. I don't need to be reminded every week that I'm more than a month behind on episodes for a series with delayed release over here. It was an issue with Kill La Kill, and it's an issue with this one. Durarara also kept showing up in my "updated" tab on the iPad whenever I checked, even though it was never anything but the first season.

Avoiding the way too easy VPN is hard enough without having this shit rubbed in my face at every opportunity.

Actually its not illegal if it was it wouldn't have been listed on the google store

You are assuming the Google Play store review process is infallible.

How about we test that by sending a link to the app to Viz, noting some of the titles they hold the rights to?

I've been a paying member of the Crunchyroll community for over two years and now I'm being blocked off of site content that would be useful.

Please stop this.

This isnt fair and it's just bad business.

I think the problem I have with this is that is most of us, especially those who are young and would have great feedback to the system, are being left out of testing because we don't pay as much. Doesn't matter how long we've been a member just the title... I think this sheds light on how irrelevant it is to it being in beta . Paying members really should have access to Beta features on the actual site, no matter what.

Let's not forget there wouldn't be a Premium+ if regular paying members didn't pave the way first, it's the only reason I'm here, I was invited. Premium+ I feel should really be more of an event, or extrinsic feature, rather than one that separates hardcore CR and anime fans from valuable feedback.

I'm leaving this since I can't leave any feedback on the calender

The calendar is still in Beta, but once we're able to collect user feedback and iterate on its design, we'll be releasing it to everyone!


If you want feed back then release to everyone who pays for a membership and not punish those whom don't have the plus membership.

Hooray! New Features! But they should focus on the video player though.

You have to be Premium Plus. Access to beta features is one of the perks of that pricier membership.

Simply a sample size. Kind of like how video game developers only allow purchasers of past games to enjoy preemptive beta testing before other users. It's easier getting feedback from Premium+ members than getting a jumble of mixed feedback from every paying member.

I notice in the demo picture that some shows have the preview images or cover photos... are those ones in the user's queue? If queued shows show with previews/photos to call them out and make them more prominent, that would be handy.

Hopefully that's how it works I guess we'll find out whenever it gets opened up to Premium members/the public, unless someone knows the answer now.

I always put my queue in simulcast release order, if you can add and remove show from a personal Simulcast Calendar it would save me some time putting my queue in order.
