I watch anime on a 55 inch led lg on my ps4 and Apple TV
But up until recently I started noticing that the quality for shows that are streamed by both funimation and cr are different. It seems the quality for funimation is better the lines are cleaner and it's not as blurry for example if u watch fairy tail on crunchy roll then watch exact same scene on funimation app you'll notice it's much better on the funi app anyways

My question is does crunchyroll app on Apple TV support 1080 cus it doesn't have any option all I know is it goes into hd on my Apple TV cus the subs get smaller and cleaner but maybe it maxes out at 720 since it doesn't have the playback option that the funi app has to play at different resolutions


Just curious as I thought then the only way to get 1080 from crunchy roll is via hdmi and laptop any insight would be great

Remember something about this from the other week, although the thread was a little old it said that Crunchyroll App was locked to 720p for streaming, would display at 1080p although this was an upscale of the 720p version.

That's all I know about the streaming Res. Haven't used the Apple TV app before so can't help there I'm afraid.
Hope at least this helps a little.

I've move this over to Site Support. I didn't even know Funi had an AppleTV app.

The original announcement implies that it does support 1080p:

Available worldwide ex Japan, those of you with a shiny Apple TV device can now have another way to get your anime and drama fix in superb HD up to 1080p quality and simulcasts up to one-hour after Japan showings!

They don't yet. Their Apple TV app isn't due until next month.
