Hooray! Been waiting for this for a long time, and it's good not to have to sideload the mobile version.

This one is pretty basic for now, but it looks good and does the job well enough for a first release on Android TV. The UI is a tad slow, with frequent spinning wheels, the Settings need some more love - no way to change video quality, for instance - and the performance of the Back button is a bit unpredictable (e.g. when playing, sometimes goes back to Home rather than the previous series info screen that launched the video).

Also I much prefer Hulu's implementation of skip back/forward on remote left/right rather than this standard Android TV control where you have to select the rewind button and hold it down (plus it's ugly).

Looking forward to seeing how it develops in future!

Honestly, all of you who are in a situation where your TV doesn't support Crunchryoll or you are stuck with old apps (Apple TV), just get a Chromecast. It's just $35 and supports more devices and services than options five times as expensive. Only requirement is a TV with HDMI input.

But for those of us who use a VPN, it's not an option since you can't VPN on a Chromecast easily.

Or those of us who only have the beta GoogleTV app with no HD.

That is the reason I cancelled almost 2 years ago.

The new Apple TV is just that, a brand new platform. Apple unfortunately gave lazy developers an easy route to port "apps" from the old Apple TV (they're just very basic script templates with virtually no functionality beyond triggering video files), so whilst some Apple TV apps are full on iOS apps with beautiful user interfaces, others are a million miles from that. Crunchyroll took the easy route and couldn't be arsed to write a new Apple TV app which takes advantage of the platform.

It's a joke of an app, albeit one which is more depressing than funny.

So I have the smart Vizio TV, and I want to access my account on Crunchyroll on this TV. I cant find the app for crunchyroll on this Vizio. What I can only find is the Web Videos apps and then click into their Channels and finally find Crunchyroll, but nowhere in there can I log into my account and watch all my videos. Is there a different area I should be looking, is it possible to log in into my account? THANX!!!!!!!!


Unfortunately we do not have an official app for the Vizio TV yet.

I will pass your suggestion along to our development team.

It's been a year or 2, when is CR going to come to Vizio?
