So I've recently started using the android app on my tablet as I currently don't have a computer to use the website, and have had no problems with streaming any anime so far.


However when I try to watch Ghost Stories (Sub or Dub), I get a pop-up message that says "We're currently preparing this show for your device."


I tried uploading a screenshot but for some reason it says "Error in form, no name given" so here's an imgur link: https://imgur.com/ewvJszH


I've tried googling this and apparently it was a problem with viewers in Canada but I'm in the United Kingdom, England.

I think its a problem with the mobile version of cr. The pc version seems fine.

Switch the language of your app to English (US). Don't use English (UK) for anything. There's literally nothing specifically localized for the UK.

That worked, thanks! Does that literally give me access to more content?

I can't thank either of you enough for posting about the exact issue I've been having for the past few months as well as providing the solution above! As you can probably tell by now, this certainly worked for me.

Had trouble playing "Hayate The Combat Butler!" on Nexus 9, Android 7.1.1. Got the "We are preparing this show..."-error.

Changed "Preferred language" under settings to "English (US)" from "English (UK).

Works now! Thanks for the tip.

hey, switching to English (US) doesn't work for me, and I had English US set initially... E.g. Boruto works fine but tanya the evil not

If you set it to English (UK) it looks for a version with English (UK) dub, which simply does not exist. There's only a version with an English (US) dub.
