I've had the issue too, it's working fine like 2 or 3 days ago and yesterday & today no matter what I use it on, despite my internet provider being fine and Crunchyroll saying it's "fine" it's not. I've been trying to finish Bleach and I'm stuck with episodes pausing on their own, switching between HD and SD, freezing completely no matter what the last 2 days of trying to watch anime has been unbearable. The fact that I managed to watch a few episodes last night was amazing and even then I had to deal with that stuff.

I'll say it again, I know I'm getting billed for this service again tomorrow and I love Crunchyroll but if this is what you get being a Premium+ member, poor quality shows and no actual customer support to be heard from besides other people in the forum with the same issues.....it's hard to judge whether it's worth it to keep going or not and I want to because it's anime but like 2 days of atrocious service is right messed up.

It plays Sailor Moon Crystal, and new episodes of select shows, but barely anything.

So I decided to register for the 14 day free trial for a premium (i dont care about ads and dont watch enough to need the membership) and VIOLA it magically fucking works...

I am NOT paying for a service I dont need to access this content. I'll stream it from a free source. The shows I've been testing the service with never popped up saying i needed a premium account to view them, just to view them without ads.

If this is some cheap trick to getting people to start paying, I'm not buying it.

Site news announcement in January applying to Canada, started in February. Basically, all simulcasts will still be available free (with commercials) for 13 weeks after episode appearance, but after that you will need premium.

It looks as if anyone accessing Crunchyroll through PS3 and PS4 is having problems. So are those people accessing games on the playsttion network according to "is it down".

I don't see what this would have to do with Crunchyroll. I have the same frustrations but it looks to be Sony's problem.

Definitely isn't on Sony's end. I was having problems with Haifuri tonight (starting at exactly 6:30PM Central time), and having been having problems starting at that exact time every night for the past couple weeks. Basically, it's like I can't access the show, as everything runs super slow, the show runs for a few seconds, stops for a few, runs for a few, etc, before finally switching over to what I'm assuming is 360p. But then I can go over to say, Call of Duty Black Ops 3 and have a perfectly fine connection with no issues. Patches for games and the like download just fine and very fast as well.
