Hey everyone,

We have a BIG UPDATE for one of our Crunchyroll applications: today we're releasing a completely redesigned CR Apple TV app! The app is available for FREE in the App Store, and is available for any latest generation Apple TV device.

First the obvious: we've given the app a brand new design that goes well with the new tvOS look and feel. We've spruced things up, added some color, and tweaked the layout to make it easier to find the content you love. Take a look!




In addition to the new looks, we've also added some new features this update:

-MIDNIGHT MODE: Surf easier with the lights down low.
-CONTINUE WATCHING: Bookmark where you left off on any device and continue playing from your TV with any of your queued series.
-IMPROVED QUEUE: Pin episodes to the top shelf to quickly add to your queue.




The tvOS app is available now for Premium and Premium+ members. Not a Premium member yet? Now's the perfect time to sign up and start a free trial, so you can watch the latest simulcasts on your Apple TV, such as Drifters, Yuri!!! On ICE, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and more!

We hope you enjoy the update!

A couple of quick questions:
1) Is the update available now? It's not showing any new update on my Apple TV.
2) Any chance of updating the manga app soon? Mine it crashes as soon as I login on my Apple devices (iPad and iPhone).

Is there any chance of news on the status of the iPad Crunchyroll Manga app soon? It crashes as soon as you log-in, and has been broken that way for months now.

Thank you so much!
I've been waiting for this app update for almost a year. Looking forward to trying it out when I get home.

Just updated and other than the home page it does not look that much different.
My queue page is the same as before in looks.

Hopefully more new functionality is added. This seems to be a basic upgrade since Apple dropped support for the older AppleTV and are forcing apps that transferred to update or face possible removal (see articles about Apple finally removing old non updating apps).

I hope there is more to come. Basic start but could be so much more.

Too bad your Chromecast support on the Android app is so buggy despite the fact there are 3x as many droid users as Apple coolaid drinkers. Any chance you will fix your Chromecast to work as well as Hulu, Netflix, tubi, Pluto, CBS, showtime, hbo, sling tv ect...?
To be honest funimation's complete fail with mobile apps last spring: especially their drod fail. Is what drove them to the CR merger where they're only sub licencing titles now. You might want to remember that. I was one of those who dropped my funi sub after years as a paid subscriber over their failed app and lack of decent new content.

As I said in the other thread,,,

Looked at the TVOS update.

My initial complaint is that on the main screen shows are only identified by their posters, no text name underneath unlike when you go to the browse screen.

Also requiring manual logins in this day and age is dumb.

Hopefully sometime soon Crunchyroll is supported in the voice search and the upcoming TV app.

I am really happy about this but tbh I'd rather an html5 online video player come first. Also, the great thing about the Crunchyroll website is how social it is; but none of the apps have commenting or any other social features. I feel like that cuts the whole thong in half.

So far I'm not a fan, before the update when I went to "My Queue" on my Apple TV app, and clicked on a show it would let me usually scroll through the episodes before i watched them. Now when i click on a show in my queue it right away plays whichever episode I'm on without giving me the option to choose episodes, that seems like a step backwards to me and a little annoying.
