So like the tittle says - Why are the costs for CR monthly/yearly plans different between countries.

I am about to renew my Premium Membership and I'm in Mexico at the moment so it shows the costs for Mexico. But when I'm in the US it shows all the costs almost double. So whats the difference in paying in one country or the other?

I know the content is different but I travel allot and I;m in both countries so if I renew while in Mexico will I be able to watch CR when I'm in the US?

I'm really confused here and I'm trying to determine what to do. Pay the price for the US or Mexico?

Any help would be welcome!

Thanks everyone.

Beneficial exchange rate?

If you sign up for premium, it'll work worldwide, but the titles available to you will vary depending on which country you're physically located in at any given time.

You'll still be premium if you travel. If you're using iTunes instead of signing up through CR directly, the price may different between the two services in your current region.

So prices for the CR service may vary for every country worldwide and also depending on the service you use then?

But in the end every Premium Member regardless has access to the same Anime shows and Manga no matter where he or she might be at any given point in time?

Thanks again, I' starting to understand this better and it helps because I travel allot to different countries due to my job.

That sounds like you are misunderstanding. There are regional restrictions which mean that not all shows are available in all regions. The restrictions depend on where you are at the moment you are watching though, not on where you were when you purchased it.

Example: If I lived in the UK and signed up for premium membership while there, then started watching while there I'd be able to see all the shows that CR licenses for the UK.

Then, if I visited the United States, I could still use my CR membership while I was there, and if monthly renewal came up, I would be charged just as I usually was, but while I was in the US I'd be able to see all the shows that CR licenses for the US (so there would be more shows that I could see.)

Then, if I went back to the UK, I could of course keep using the membership, but once again, I'd only be able to see the shows that CR makes available in the UK.
