So let's say crunchyroll would release an app on pc/mac so that you can download anime episodes which would stay on the application and put in a certain playlist or a "my anime" section so that you can watch your anime episodes offline.

Do you think it is a good idea? I would love to be able to watch an episode of a show like on the bus heading to work or even at lunch break.

Anyway just reply here and say what you think? would it be possible? would you like it?

It is a good idea.
Spotify has that offline function. So I don't see why it can't be applied to anime.

Good idea? Meh, why not. But I'm pretty sure CR doesn't have the license to allow temporary downloads.

I'd assume bandwidth issues would be...well, issues. While downloading a song typically is like, 5MB, an episode of HD video would probably be closer to 250MB. There would also probably be piracy concerns which would cause issues with licence holders...

I would probably use the mobile app a lot more if it had a sweet option like that

I would definitely take advantage of a feature like that. As someone else mentioned spotify, it is nice to have to option to play either your music or videos offline if you wish. I think it would definitely give CR an even higher leg up on their competitors as well.

this was already suggested, but the site admins/staff aren't too keen on the idea (mostly because of costs as was already mentioned here)
even though other services already let people download.

If that were to happen... It'd probably be only available to premium members tbh ;-;

obviously. otherwise, that would defeat the purpose of premium membership
though CR can't even offer that to premium users atm

watch while traveling...in the car / plane / bus
you could use your mobile internet service, but CR is not in the binge program, so it'll cost a lot of data.

edit: not to mention: lag / buffer issues will no longer be an issue (and many people complain of slowness/ buffering)

nope

too expensive to develop a fat-a$$ed DRM system to chain the content

YouTube Red does the same thing and I use that feature all the time, because I am not always connected. I say hell yes... take my money!!!! I would watch Cruchy 24/7 with that app... and not worry about mobile fees...
