Am I the only one who feels that there are too many commercials? I have to watch three when an episode starts, another two after the intro, then two more halfway through, then when I try to skip to the next episode, I have to watch three more, then three more when the next one starts and so on. When did they start having commercials? It is really pissing me off that I am paying for this service and most of my time is spent watching the same fucking commercials over and over. Thank you Crunchy Roll, Applebees, and Ellen, for taking what was supposed to be a nice relaxing time for me and turning it into a hassle.

Idk bro. it's like $7 a month. If u add up all those commercials when u binge watch... u could've made $8 in one hour of a minimum wage irl/online job.

stop griping go buy premium or haunt the guestpass thread.

As others say, Crunchyroll is a company and they need money to be able to provide you with anime.
Licenses, bandwith, personel and upkeep all cost money and that needs to come from somewhere, in your case, as you're not giving CR money directly, this comes from the revenue they make from showing you commercials during the episodes you watch.

Lol you know that's the point right? The technique works two-fold:

1. You can't just get up to afk until the commercials are done, forcing u to stay there and watch.
2. If they annoy you enough with commercials strewn everywhere, you'll be more likely to buy premium or go rogue and watch on illegal sites.

No to undermine what you are saying but dude. THAT MANY COMERCIALLS ARE GOING TO HAVE THE OPPOSITE EFFECT. Hell, the first time I use CR I quit immediately. I only come back after the free trial. Which was months later.
Also, CR having that many ADS are unjustifiable. Dasuki net & Hulu or Funimation. Don't have that many commercials. No to mention they are most of the time correctly time for the episodes. Also, the point of ADS is to promote and no annoy people until they don't want to use your service. Also don't tell me 11 dollars a month is nothing. People pay for other services too. That add up quickly. Between Funi and CR. I am enjoying Funi more. Reason. The video player isn't utter shit like CR. I can stop and come back later to watch it without freeing up.
