Most, if not all, of the disabled shows are available on Hulu (free with commercials or none with subscription/free trial) or The Anime Network with subscription (or free trial period).

Crunchyroll is their a way you can let us know when something like this is going to happen in the future (license expired)? Can you provide a list to your customers on what titles are going away? Maybe an announcement board or scrolling message alert on the main web page (if you did this I missed it and apologize).

They usually do. Just search the word "marathon" in the Site News section of the forum and you'll find many (but not all) of the times in the past they have done so.

Sometimes, however, they don't have sufficient warning. This could be either due to expecting the licenses to be renewed by the publisher and being surprised when they are not, or the original contract stated the titles would entire "at will" status. ("At will" meaning the publisher was then free to remove them at any time, which they contract also specifying if any advance notice had to be given).

Can you at least post a possible date that the anime will be removed? Similar to how Netflix will post an "expiration date" next to a stream in 'My List' that is going to be removed. This may help a lot of viewers.

Most of them do not have an actual planned expiration date:

<crunchyroll:premiumEndPubDate>Mon, 30 Nov 9998 08:00:00 GMT</crunchyroll:premiumEndPubDate>
<crunchyroll:freeEndPubDate>Mon, 30 Nov 9998 08:00:00 GMT</crunchyroll:freeEndPubDate>

They are almost all "at will", where either party can terminate them at any time. The "surprises" are because the publisher licensing it to CR either got a better deal for a license elsewhere, or simply decided to stop for unknowable reasons.

The ones which do have an expiration date already do show it on the individual episode pages.

Whatever Sentai does in the future, I can only hope that they don't prevent us Canadians from watching good shows by putting them on US-only streaming services like Hulu or Amazon Prime.

If you know your 2-character country code, and it isn't in this list, then it is restricted in your region. Only these country codes are allowed:

Food Wars (both seasons) is not available on Crunchyroll for French users. You can watch it on another legal service though.

It has been over two months and no words on how the "negotiation" goes. Good or bad, huh? Come-on, throw us a bone, or something!

This is bad because it only encourage people to stick with illegitimate sites to finish whatever they started before the big pull out. Sentai or Crunchyroll, whoever the culprit of the situation is, may be both, should be ashamed of themselves.

That is a Sentai license, and as of yet, they haven't even placed it on The Anime Network website, only Hulu.

Given CR's announced partnership with Funimation, I also wouldn't expect to be seeing much activity in Sentai licensing titles to CR.
