I've been reading in and out of topics, and been debating why there are tons of people pissed off at Funimation right now. For one it has to do with their piss ass streaming (Paying earned cash to legally watch anime on a high end connection). You would think that with as much business as they are doing it would come down to prioritizing their app and servers to handle congestion load. Plus, it gets worse than that try using the PS3 and PS4's Funimation app they are comparably worse (Due to part of Sony not adopting the latest in wireless technology). Now for the second part of this little rant which in part is due to Crunchy Roll (No streaming problems with them yet, besides their website crashing every several days of the week).

I can't really say much other than congested servers. If anyone else is experiencing the same problem please feel free to post it here. I'm sure not the only one having this problem. Also, please stay away from the Funimation app on PS4 its complete trash when it tries to handle full 1080P Streaming.

You know it's funny... I must have paid for about 6 solid months without watching anime, in stupid math that's roughly 4300 potential streaming hours, and about $42 CAD.

I literally just give my money each month not really caring at aĺl, with some interest that later slowly dies for some reason.

So what's the point you're trying to make here?

I'm wondering the same thing.

In any case, this isn't really a Chit-Chatty topic -- that's meant for for personal sorts of threads and random conversation --so I've closed it

There are two threads I know of where folks have conversations regarding Funimation, and Crunchyroll's recent recurring issues (outside of the Site Support and Suggestions/Feedback forums), so I think what you have to say would be a good fit for one of those existing threads. Here are the links to them:

/forumtopic-980391/its-saturday-night-time-for-crunchyroll-to-crash
