There is a series that I started watching and the new episode aired in Japan on Tuesday 7/26/2016. How come we have to wait 4 days to watch the episode? I thought Crunchyroll claimed that we get to watch new episodes 1 hour after it has aired in Japan as Premium members? (which I am)...I don't understand it. Did the policy change???

No. There are sometimes certain things that happen that delay a simulcast episode, however. It's uncommon, but I've seen things like that happen on the rare occasion.

There are multiple stations in Japan, and they don't all air the show on the same day. CR's would have to follow the airing of whichever station the production company was affiliated with that granted them the license.

From the premium comparison page:



Your memory seems to have omitted the "...as soon as.." part.
