So far, I've tried the Roku and the Apple TV, and I like the Crunchyroll app interface and quality on the Apple TV better. But I knew a new Apple TV was going to be announced, so I held off on buying one.

Now the new one has been announced, and the ecosystem is different from the old Apple TV ecosystem. So the question is, will CR support the new hardware?

AppleTV 4 will start selling soon (Oct 26), so no news?

With current state of tvOS I really doubt that Apple will manage to start selling 26 October - probably it will be preorder so shipping in November. Applications for Apple TV 4 are different than "old" channels so it may need lot of work to do this...

So of the latest set top boxes only the roku has crunchy roll right? AFAIK neither AndroidTV/FireTV/AppleTV4 have a crunchyroll app.

The Android app should work when sideloaded onto an Android TV device, minus a few of the Android TV capabilities.

The Apple TV 4 isn't even physically available yet, just stay tuned.

Well, it is now and interested people want to know if and when the services they currently use (including, but not limited to, Crunchyroll) will be available on the device.

Please remember that viewers with limited power or HDMI sockets may be planning to swap out an older device for a new AppleTV. Which serices are/aren't going to be on it any time soon heavily influences which devices can go or stay.

To be fair, there may be more to it than Hank is aware of.

Just got my new Apple TV, and yes, there was more than Hank was aware of, but I can confirm Crunchyroll is on the new Apple TV, but you will have to reinstall it. All the apps that were on the 3rd gen are on a specific page of the App Store.

Go down to more to explore.


Crunchyroll has an image placed if you add it to the top menu, personally wish it would show me a Recently Updated feed.

Thank you for the info. It's amazing that we have to wait for a user to know if Crunchyroll is available on the ATV4 (wonder if the staff knows it). It's also surprising there is not a list of the available apps on the ATV4 somewhere.

Great to hear. I am going to pick one up and see how I like it! (And if I don't, the Apple Store has a 14-day return policy...)
