It would need to be extraordinary to get more than $10/month from me.

This season lacks enough content I am interested in to get even a basic subscription.

I would happily pay 100 a month to Crunchroll if they offer occulus rift support so I can enjoy anime in a virtual environment.

$0. Even disregarding the existence of…other options…I don't think there's anything on a site like this so important that I can't wait a week for it to drift into free content. As far as seasonals are concerned, I actually prefer to marathon them once they've finished airing anyway, and the only perennial series that interests me is Gintama°.

Long as the content provided is worth the price I'll pay a lot. It's fine as it is now.

If they offer free shipping and handling, plus a discount to somewhat offset the exchange rate for purchases, like anime series, manga, accessories, plus ad free streaming on multiple platforms. I would say $30 a month.

Now I personally have been with CR for a little over a year and a half for premium membership, and it is something that doesn't hurt my wallet. The thing is, I don't feel like paying for something that I'm never going to use. There are times when I haven't even watched a single anime in a month or so, but I still pay for it.

The thing is, I only watch ad free anime on multiple devices, I don't read manga on here, I don't use the shop because the price is just too much for me. I have a local comic book store that sells manga, and i'm still paying $12-$15 for certain issues, if I were to normally use amazon or whatever, it would be $12 plus shipping and handling and tax, it adds up when I have now over 7 volumes, and 2 anime series, especially with our dollar being complete Shit, and I was lucky to get those at 47% off and it still was pretty dam expensive for the most part.

My point is. CR has a good thing going for them, they have their shop, their anime, their manga, news, and for the amount of titles they have, it's worth every penny, but if you start charging 20$ for no real incentive of doing so, then forget it.

$7 is about the most I am willing pay, I just don't use them that much. On CR for example, there is maybe one show per season I care to watch with any regularly.

$10 but i would bump it up to $20 if they had a wide selection of anime in hd quality. Been to many sites that dont have hd and it really pales in comparison to ones that do.

cr doesn't have enough of the popular titles from this current anime season... dragonball super for example... but normally I wouldn't mind paying monthly around $5 since that's about all I can afford.... well I cant even afford that anymore but i mean when I have money

If it works into my budget, I'll pay it. Ten, 20, 30 dollars. If I enjoy something, I'd rather spend some money to help keep it alive rather than pay nothing. I mean someone (premium members) has to keep this site going for the freeloaders.

I drop in and out of watching anime so much that its not viable to have a subscription but if the season's real good, their anime collection is decent and i'm desperate then I don't mind paying up to $15. I have trouble making any financial decisions so i prefer/end up not making any at all

If it was good enough i wouldn't shy away from $30 a month honestly. Crunchyroll has a good thing going, but there's no way they're gonna get a choke-hold on the anime streaming market. They have a sizable catalog, but there is A LOT of anime out there in the first place. I'll grant that they have several good anime on this site, and they're pretty good with licensing simulcasts that are widely enjoyable. They also have a slew of other nifty features, such as multi-platform streaming. The apps aren't perfect just yet, but they are functional enough for binge watching which is what's important. I wouldn't pay more than 30 though, i mean i still have to pay for the internet itself and that usually comes bundled with cable anyways - A-

Now if crunchyroll got to work on making their own television network i might just bite at that as well. I'm not the type of person to watch TV a whole lot, but i wouldn't mind having a go-to channel.

Not much since it's just streaming and you don't actually own it. I'm happy with the $60 a year I'm currently paying. Would start getting antsy about higher prices unless a ton was offered. I have super high standards so I don't see that happening.
