I just started using Crunchyroll and so I have very limited knowledge on its bugs and such. But the free user date for the anime I want to watch said it would be released on November 23rd. And it is currently November 23rd at 2am. So why hasn't the episode become available for free users? I'd understand if it wasn't the hour of for Premium Users because that airs directly after Japan gets it, but shouldn't licensing and such be already taken care of by the time free users get it? Is there like a rule of thumb that if it was late for Premium Users it'll also be late for free users or that it's always several hours off and I shouldn't have wasted my time waiting for it all night?

It usually gives a closer to accurate time for release here:

Free time is a full week later, so if it originally aired in the afternoon, then afternoon's also the time of day when the free one will air. And yes, if the original was delayed, for whatever reason, then the free one will be delayed by that same amount of time.
