You guys need to change the quality of your videos for free viewers.

You have it a 480P. That not only stupid but I can find several legal sites where the quality is higher.

Hulu for example. I hate their ADS but I, at least, can watch anime a 720P or higher.

Doesn't Hulu have ads even if you pay them? I haven't tried lately, but I seem to recall hating that far more than I hated the resolutions or lack thereof offered. Personal preference, of course.

Hulu recently started offering an ad-free tier for about $12. There are only a rare couple of non-anime network shows which they couldn't get to agree, but almost everything is available that way now.

Ahh, interesting, thanks! Though still not feeling worth it to me, to be honest... then again, I'm watching stuff here at 480P while paying for premium+, so I'm likely the weird one.

Yes they can and it call piracy and going to other legal sites too. Excuse me while I enjoy god eater a 1080P on Daisuki http://www.daisuki.net/pr/en/anime/watch.GODEATER.12487.html

Beggars can't be choosers is the most stupid comment I ever read. Dude hulu has like pretty much every new season of anime out there. And they are not the only legal site out there. And the so call free option is more like free to play. If people are watching your commercials then you either listing to what the people watching your commercial say or they go somewhere else. Is call being a consumer. And before you ask what people are consuming when is supposedly free. Your ADS. I am consuming your ADS. So isn't really free.

Seriously why will I put myself through CR commercials and inferior quality when I can watch it elsewhere a higher quality.

I feel like you could have done that without all the complaining. You move site to site paying for nothing. Be happy with what you get.

Removed a handful of off-topic comments. Get yourselves a room if you want to keep arguing and insulting each other.

As a bit of levity - just a comment on my last CR experience while traveling - I had to use Amtrak Wi-Fi on the train and barely got it to work at SD setting on a notebook. For me most of the quality issues arise around connectivity vs. what is max res of content allowed.

You shouldn't. Just go and use the better options.

That is the answer and the problem. Is CR want to make money off ADS, they need people to watch those ADS. But to do that they need to make it competitive with other options out there. Which they haven't even try. Hulu and Daisuki offer far better options. Better player, better quality and Hulu has massive content.

No, because is no free. You make me sit through various commercials. You are making money off me watching your commercials. Again why should I keep using something when there are far better options out there? That while they make me sit through commercials too, they do not make me watch it to a inferior video quality. Stop avoiding the question.

Honestly I don't care about video quality but you're pretty badass and I like you. CR won't care because it's pretty imminent that they'll probably get rid of free users eventually. Offering too much for free can kinda undercut the value/incentive to pay for bonuses.

Bit off topic but even I ask the homeless if they don't mind the food I'm about to hand them, just in case. Sometimes, there's no point in giving if it ain't well received. Also like you said, free users aren't like desperate 'beggars' as they're other, sometimes better suited options and we help by watching ads. Non-paying users are probably just kinda a casual or a kid with no money who thinks the least thing they can do is watch legally instead of illegally. If free membership went those two demographics won't fall into an animeless pit, they'll migrate to better suited sites - Hulu/Netflix for the casuals and illegal sites for the kids without cash. They're just people acting accordingly to their circumstances.

But yeah...I'm great with 480p so please don't take away the anime CR - what I said wasn't a threat or anything :ph34r . I'm a teeny bit more than casual, just a sporadic watcher ~ ~ ~

Give them food with poison or rotten food and they will complain. Anyway, I just pointing their crap out. I don't use the site anymore. I pay for the manga sub but that is so inconsistent I rather buy the physical version. For anime or any free alternative is better than CR right now. I rather use the money for something else.
