Please announce it when account linking is finally enabled? It's the only thing keeping me from signing up (I already did the free trial of the Combo Pass).

Sigh I have zero interest in those other but Funimations titles. Good luck splitting into so many parts you forget your core user group! This has seemed to happen in the past. Of course with the loss of net neutrality in the USA one could expect streaming to become very expensive in the near future!

Is there a way to link your accounts to your vrv account so you can use premium membership on the websites? From what I've seen your VRV account can only be accessed through the app.

With /r/anime highlighting recent simuldub quality, I've realized I have no reason to hold back on checking out dubs. When Crunchyroll has a show with both languages available (like FMA:B), I always alternate language every episode. I've only been sub-focused because of availability. And the aspect of "having everything in one place" (thus I locked-in Crunchyroll). This situation sounds like it's time for me to check out dubs again, maybe watch more often if I'm comfortable having them in the background.

I hope the distribution of pay is view-based (seems likely). I've long been saying I'm willing to spend more on Crunchyroll. I'd be sad if this meant CR got less from me because of deals with the other niche-niche services (the model being comparable to cable TV is a bit discomforting, but the price is right).

Maybe this VRV setup also sprouts an opportunity for someone else to jump on the opportunities CR hasn't been strong in, something equivalent to AT-X, specialized in picking up uncensored versions of shows. Although I still would have more confidence with everything-in-one-place, CR's done a lot of good and should be supported to do better (not to mention J-manga's life and graceful death). Also further up, hentai creators still deserve my money as much as any other entertainment creators, there's still not convenient accessibility there.

wow look at all those subscriptions i don't care about, a i guess this is good for people that use a lot of that stuff, but literally the only thing on it that i use is crunchyroll, even Funi is unnecessary anymore now that they give crunchy the subs, so as long as this doesn't effect this website cool

I pay for Funimation, CR, and Roosterteeth, so if it'll allow me to link and login to all 3 and use them how I normally do for only $10 that's a great deal, but until then I'm waiting for integration.

Honestly, not being able to watch on PC is the deal breaker for me. I work with PC's, game with PC's and study on my PC. If I need another device to watch these, it kind of loses it's worth. What I care for is CR, Funimation, Seeso and G&S, all of which I can watch at my PC currently. This feels like a step back for that.
Though, for all the channels, I'd be willing to pay more than $9.99 for the combo pack if it had a PC friendly player, whether in the form of an app or via browser.

I only watch Funimation and Crunchyroll. A combo for just those two would be GREAT!!

I don't understand. I'm already a CR and Funi subscriber. What does this mean for me? Is VRV a bundle if the two plus more? Would i be better off dropping those two to sub to VRV instead? And when available what exactly does linking the account do?

How do you watch the shows on a computer? It seems like you can only access the shows through the app on a phone or console?
