Hi.

I understand that Crunchyroll is one of the better sites to find anime. I enjoy coming here because I can watch new shows for free. Well, when I was able to.

For quite a while I've been running into the issue where I had to stop watching shows because Crunchyroll would put a premium block on every episode of that show; leaving only the 2 minute preview version and forcing me to find the show outside of Crunchyroll. Now I understand that it isn't a problem for my friends who live in the states and don't use premium. They're able to watch the same shows with no issue whatsoever. However, I live in Canada, and a bunch of my other friends who frequent Crunchyroll state the same problem.

I understand that Crunchyroll has to make money from either ad revenue or via premium membership, but this kind of just came out of the blue and it's stopped me from even wanting to frequent the site, since I can't afford paying for premium.

So, if anyone knows what's going on; whether it's a psuedo-region lock (although why they'd block pretty much everything for Canada is beyond me) or just an error on Crunchyroll's part, please let me know. I'm getting kind of tired of watching anime on... Less then stellar sites.

Edit: Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I don't frequent this part of the site at all, and you can't contact staff directly from what I can tell.

Ah, thank you. That explains it.
