Hello All,

I recently moved to Korea from the USA and I realized that a lot of the content just disappeared...or maybe it was removed, I am not sure. But is it because I am in Korea or did something else happen? So many shows are gone and its making me sad! Lol

Any and all help would be appreciated!

I've moved this to the Site Support / Minor Questions forum. It's because CR has fewer shows that it can legally stream in Asia. If you moved back to the U.S. those shows would be available to you again (well except for ones that might actually get removed altogether between now and then--normally wouldn't be many if any).

I think I know what is the reason.
You moved to korea and many shows are region blocked there.
This is just an theory.

Yep, it's region blocking. It's unfortunate, but, unless you know how to trick the Interwebs into thinking that you're elsewhere (I sure don't know how), you're pretty well screwed.

CR is a rather poor value in Asia. You may have not noticed it before, but even many of CR's "worldwide" licenses are "worldwide outside of Asia".

Yea...Ive noticed. Theres still a few shows that can keep me occupied so I will keep it. Im just so disappointed though...I wonder if theres a better service or something. I want to support anime in some way and dont mind spending a little money to do so. I dont want to just stream it you know

Doing so would be a violation of the CR /ToS.
