So recently, about a week ago, I started having a problem using CR on my Roku TV. Whenever I try to play an episode that has recently been released (up to 3-4 days prior) I cannot load the episode. It will either say retrieving or loading, longest I've waited was 10 minutes.

Haven't done anything to try and fix this cause well...I have no clue what I can do...

P.S. I have no trouble at all watching older episodes of anything. It just happens when I try to watch new episodes.

Example: Attempted to watch Trinity Seven Eternity Library & Alchemic Girl on my Roku TV and it would not load. so instead started to watch Akiba's Trip starting at episode 1. Didn't have a single problem. Just finished watching the new Trinity Seven on my computer with no issues.

I am having this issue as well. It doesn't happen to all new episodes but the newest episode of Youjo Senki and Maid Dragon did not load no matter me restarting the app.

tbh i cried out of frustration because the new episodes refuse to play on the roku. Older anime series on crunchyroll played fine on the tv but the new episodes didnt play at all. I also did everything. Kinda sucks. I had to give up my anime watching time and ACTUALLY do something else... I really miss watching anime on the roku

A workaround is to go to the sister site vrv.co and create a "free" account.

After that, go to the profile and link your CR account. At first, it will say "this account is not premium" for many hours up to as much as a day.

After waiting a day, the link between the sites will finally "take hold" correctly and then you can add the VRV app on your Roku and watch using that instead.

Navigation in that app is inferior in my opinion, but at least the videos play...
