Hey everyone,

We’re excited to announce that you can now link your Crunchyroll Premium account between Crunchyroll on VRV and the standalone Crunchyroll service (Crunchyroll.com and associated apps)! Linking your account means that you will have all Crunchyroll Premium streaming benefits (simulcast, ad-free and HD viewing) on both VRV and Crunchyroll’s existing apps/website, as well as all additional Crunchyroll Premium benefits like manga app access, discounts in the Crunchyroll Store, convention perks, and more.

If you’re already a Premium member, you can have Premium access to Crunchyroll on VRV by linking your existing account to VRV. This also works the other way! So, if you get The Combo Pack on VRV and link to your existing Crunchyroll account, you’ll still have Premium access to all of Crunchyroll’s apps and Simulcasts. Just make sure you cancel your Premium membership on your existing Crunchyroll service after you purchase The Combo Pack on VRV, so you don’t get charged twice!




We cover more about Account Linking in the FAQ below, so please check it out! If you have any additional questions, please check out the extended FAQ about Account Linking on vrv.co, or tweet us @WatchVRV.


Account Linking FAQ


How do I link accounts?
Please note that linking accounts only affects Premium memberships. You will need a Premium membership from Crunchyroll’s standalone service or VRV. Here’s how you link your Crunchyroll Premium account to VRV and vice versa:

If you already have a Crunchyroll Premium account from Crunchyroll’s standalone service:

Step 1: Go to VRV.co
Step 2: Create an account
Step 3: Go to Account Settings
Step 4: Select Account Linking and follow the prompts

If you already have The Combo Pack or a Crunchyroll Premium account on VRV:
Step 1: Go toVRV.co
Step 2: Go to Account Settings
Step 3: Select Account Linking and follow the prompts

Will linking my account transfer my username, watchlists, e.t.c.?

No, Account Linking only confirms your Premium status across Crunchyroll on VRV and the standalone Crunchyroll service.

I want The Combo Pack! Should I cancel my Crunchyroll Premium membership on Crunchyroll.com after linking my account?

Yes! If you buy The Combo Pack you also get Crunchyroll Premium. Please cancel your Crunchyroll Premium membership afterwards on Crunchyroll.com so you don’t get charged twice. No need for two of them!

How do I access Crunchyroll manga on VRV?

Crunchyroll on VRV does not support the manga reader. However, you can link your account and access the manga reader through Crunchyroll.com or the free Crunchyroll Manga Reader app available on iOS or Android.

How do I use a VRV gift card to pay for my Crunchyroll Premium membership on the Crunchyroll standalone service (i.e. Crunchyroll.com and associated apps)?
You have to Go Premium with The Combo Pack or Crunchyroll on VRV using the gift card, and then link your account to Crunchyroll’s standalone service. Here are the steps:

Step 1: Purchase a gift card at your local GameStop.
Step 2: Go to VRV.co/redeem and follow the prompts. NOTE: You’ll need to create an account if you haven’t already!
Step 3: Select Go Premium for Crunchyroll on VRV.
Step 4: Link your Crunchyroll Premium using VRV’s Account Linking. You’re done!


Additional VRV FAQs



We’re Premium members to one of the other channels on VRV. Can we link these to VRV?

Not yet, but we do have plans to roll out the ability to link channels to VRV in the future.

Where does my money go?

Every ad view and Premium membership goes toward supporting the channel and the content providers that power those channels. In Crunchyroll’s case, it goes towards supporting the anime industry exactly the same as a subscription direct through Crunchyroll’s standalone service.

I noticed Crunchyroll Simulcast on VRV is a little delayed. Why is that?

The process we use to put Crunchyroll on VRV means it hits Crunchyroll first, then we move the content over. The wait can be as little as 5 minutes or at most 5 hours. We’re doing more and more to shorten this process so there’s no delay at all.

So are these limited versions of each channel?

No, they are intended to be the full version of each channel.

You may see some missing series from our catalog on VRV, but please know we’re working hard to get everything in there so it’s the same experience on both services.

What devices does VRV support?
VRV is currently on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS phones, and Android phones. We plan on supporting more devices like browsers, tablets, Chromecast, and other streaming boxes.

Is VRV available in all territories?
VRV is only available in the U.S. for now. We’re doing all we can to be everywhere, so please know we’re thinking about you. Besides Crunchyroll, many of our channel partners are looking at ways to bring their shows to you with or without VRV.

YES! Thank you for this. I'm so excited.

EDIT: How long will it take for our account to recognize the change after we link?

This is pretty great, but I'll have to wait till next year before I can do this... already paid a full year for Funimation and Crunchyroll last November.... ah well... $10 for all those channels. I pay $13/month for just P+ on crunchyroll alone, but it sounds like they're working on linking the Crunchyroll premium with VRV so if I could pay for Crunchyroll, Funimation, and the others with $13/month?? That'd be fucking clutch.

If we already subscribe to Crunchy, do we get a discount on the VRV combo pack?

I got all excited until I saw: VRV is only available in the U.S.

So sucks since I was going to sign up straight away, but again the UK is left in the cold

It appears that to do that you have to cancel the standalone CR account:
/forumtopic-983519


if you get The Combo Pack on VRV and link to your existing Crunchyroll account, you’ll still have Premium access to all of Crunchyroll’s apps and Simulcasts. Just make sure you cancel your Premium membership on your existing Crunchyroll service after you purchase The Combo Pack on VRV, so you don’t get charged twice!

Make sure you have a compatible device though, it only works currently here (and only in the USA):


What devices does VRV support?
VRV is currently on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS phones, and Android phones. We plan on supporting more devices like browsers, tablets, Chromecast, and other streaming boxes.

This might get me back to being premium. I'm a free user now but if I go premium with the pack I get CR Premium AND Funimation for 10 bucks a month? The other channels are bonus at this point. So I assume I go premium at VRV, attach my free CR account and that goes premium once they are linked? I assume I'd have to do the same (going premium on VRV) for funimation? And yes I'm in the USA.

Since I bought the annual subscription, guess that's a no-go for me. I'll have to wait until later this year when my Crunchy subscription expires.

I think that CR is currently the only "linkable" site. From above:

We’re Premium members to one of the other channels on VRV. Can we link these to VRV?
Not yet, but we do have plans to roll out the ability to link channels to VRV in the future.


But if you use one of the four current devices listed, you can watch both from VRV using the appropriate VRV app. (no browsers or Roku, or Apple TVs, or even tablets yet).

Cool. CR has been my Go-to place for anime for several years. I'll see if the husband wants to do this. We've been thinking about it and hopefully the ap is more stable than CR's has been on the PS4 (it wasn't before and that's why I stopped paying for CR). I see the site has a trial period I can test out. Thanks!

How does this work if we want to get VRV as well as keep CR Premium+? (Though CR has done little to support the P+ members lately...) Do we just pay $23/mo or can there be a way to 'upgrade' the Premium from the combo pack to Premium+ so it's a little more reasonable instead of paying for two full subscriptions?

I'd love to jump on board the VRV hype train, but as things stand right now, it's cheaper for me to keep CR Premium+ and Funimation Premium as separate subscriptions.

Exciting news though!

I'm playing with it right now and linked my account. Looks like if you link your account and cancel auto renew on CR. Sign up for the pack on VRV.co and your CR account will work like normal by only paying for the pack on VRV and not paying CR.

Cool. I'll be playing with this when hubby gets home. Just to confirm though. According to the video release.. if I'm free here now, if I go premium on VRV and link to my free CR account.. I'll go premium here on CR again?

That is my understanding. I'd do the link before you start paying though just to make sure it links properly. All you have to do is hit link on vrv and log into CR.

I'm also curious about how this would work with Premium+. Mind you, I just now noticed I had plus and was wondering what the extra + perks were as I don't recall really seeing any in the last year or so.
