Hi,
Just wanting to know if you guys are going to make a dubbed show category. As i know you have now joined up with funimation and they dont have a Google play TV app for Australia as of yet.


Thanks

That seems doubtful, given the deal with Funimation will result in no increase of dubs and might even decrease them (although if that were the case, I would hope it wouldn't affect viewers outside of where Funimation streams).

Keep in mind no dubs from Funimation will be coming to CR, and there is no indication any of the new dubs created by Funimation for CR shows will appear here for any countries. (Certainly they won't for the areas Funimation streams to, and they'll probably want to keep their options open for further areas they might stream to).

The Funimation FAQ stated, "English dubs from the Crunchyroll library will be now available on FunimationNow", which doesn't necessarily indicate those same shows would be removed from CR. Even if that were the case, I would hope there were an exclusion for any countries Funimation doesn't currently stream to.


Although there will be exceptions, the basic gist of this entire deal is "Subs on CR, Dubs on Funimation".
