Meh, my phone controls nearly all the tech in my house so this doesn't bother me. I still get it on my TV just fine.

I've moved this to our Polls forum. That's where all Poll topics go regardless of subject matter (unless they are intended for customer support purposes in one of the Help! forums).

In fact there is just such a poll that someone started in Site Support:

/forumtopic-911403/cr-dumping-support-for-smart-tvs

I'm personally okay with it. I'm not affected because I never used a Smart TV and have several other devices on which CR has an app.

While I can understand how annoying it is for people who did use the Smart TV app, and how angry and disappointed they must feel if they specifically chose a new TV based on it having the CR app, I can also understand CR not wanting to continue it if not many of their viewers were using it.

That said for folks who don't have another device and don't plan to abandon CR over this, I suggest the Roku stick as an inexpensive option that works very well.

Personally, hate this decision.

My Wife and I watch anime every weekend. We are not consistent gamers. The Xboxes are not constantly on, we don't use our laptops for strictly watching anime and most of our streamed shows are from Netflix and PLEX. Your business model should have included all sources of media and realize that even though not everyone uses the SmartTV app, that having it available means that it is another source of income.

We don't have an outlet anymore for being able to watch Anime aside from netflix.. which has very limited content.

Unfortunately for CrunchyRoll, they have lost a subscriber.

It was one of the first apps I checked for when I got my new TV. I check back in every so often, but there don't seem to be any updates to the list.

It doesn't really affect me. Even if it did, I'd probably prefer to use consoles.

Have a smart TV but don't care, I thought you needed premium anyway, I watch pretty much 99.9% of my anime on either my computer or phone.
