Hello,

kinda new to crunchyroll and as european been watching animes on various websites.
Came here cause i thought that here since this is a payed website would be most animes.
Ofc i was naive not realizing all the factors at play.
Wanted to ask why some animes are allowed while some are not, like hunter x hunter was a bit let down to find out i cant watch it here even after going for premium.

Is there a probability that some shows that arent allowed in my region (netherland) will make appearance or is this deffinitive

thanks alot for answers

I've been a membership since 2 months , and that's the first question i asked the support of the site .

they said that they are continually trying to expand the licenses .

the library here in Saudi Arabia is very small and many old famous animes are not available .

while i am seeing that they are doing a really good job making the seasonal animes available (almost all of them) .

i don't see them giving much attention to the old shows that are already available in the other stores

maybe they are trying on the future shows but ignoring what they already made a contract with

that's just a guess , they said that they are trying to expand them , but i am subscribed for 2 months and didn't see a single anime made available in this period

It's a licensing issue.
I'm from the UK so Crunchyroll blocks us from watching One Piece because here Manga Entertainment UK own the license currently.
As long as the license is owned by someone else in your region I think it's safe to say you won't be seeing those shows unfortunately.

I've moved this over to the Site Support / Minor Questions forum.

To add to what others have said, I'll just link to the two Help/FAQ articles that provide a basic answer to this:

The license probably reads "Norway, Sweden, Denmark", not "unspecified Nordic countries". Finland probably just wasn't part of the deal when Funimation licensed those shows.

As usually :(
Does these anime companies have something against Finland?
I don't know.

What I read those three animes where they come available.
Norway, Sweden. Denmark, Iceland, UK, Ireland, US and Canada
Did I miss something?
