Ok to start off i love this site. I used it for all of my anime shows but i came back from about a week of being off and all of the shows i were watching and were halfway though are all suddenly Premium and i understand, You want People to get Premium and you make some profit but to have half the shows only have one episode for free users. I think that's just a bit much

All Simulcast episodes will still be still free for 13 weeks after they first become available, according to the site news article, so you can still watch those, but you have to keep mostly up to date. Full article is here if you haven't read it yet:

Still puzzles me as to why Canada was picked first only to claim currency differences when it lists the following in 2014.


Additionally, we’re always trying to provide more value for our premium users. Going forward, shows that are exclusive to Crunchyroll (not available on any other service), will be available exclusively to premium members 1 year after simulcast on Crunchyroll. Free viewers have a full year to watch, and premium members have access as long as we have the license (just like now). Shows that are available elsewhere will continue to be available on Crunchyroll for free (and premium) viewers indefinitely. We will make this change at the beginning of next year, and any affected titles will have updated availability notes by the end of this week. We think this is a minimal change, and is worth it to make all living room available to millions of our free viewers.

So it appears they tweaked it
1. Instead of one year became 13 weeks
2. Instead of being exclusive shows turned into all shows.

They started with Canada. So I would assume that everywhere else is 'soon'.
Did they hope that I would forget lol.
