Region restrictions. AoT may be available from a local distributor for your region.

Attempting to bypass CR's region restrictions is a violation of the /ToS, and may result in your account being banned.

Premium:
  • removes in-video commercials
  • gives you access to higher resolutions
  • allows viewing the latest episode one week earlier than "free" ad-supported users

But it does not override region restrictions for countries where CR was unable to obtain streaming license rights at all. There are a few shows that are for premium-members only, but even among those, most are probably region restricted as well...

I know CR tries to get every show, in every region they can, but sometimes the publishers have other ideas - they may decide that a certain show will get them more money on TV broadcast, or by selling DVDs, or things like that instead of streaming services, unfortunately. I'm guessing something like that is the case for Finland, but I'm just a mod, so I don't know for sure.

That said, CR can legally only air shows in the areas the license agreements allow, which is why attempting to get around the region restrictions is against the ToS.

Since you're a premium member, try visiting /forumtopic-588949/what-seriesmoviedramamanga-would-you-like-to-see-on-cr and asking for it to be added for your region. If they know there's a desire for it in your area, maybe they'll be able to fight for it!

A lot of the time it just seems like publishers don't care that's all. Bakemonogatari for example doesn't even exist in this country it seems or maybe it's just really hard to find. The only choice you have at that point is to ship it in from elsewhere and even then I'm sure someone's going to find some legality problem to complain about.
