This has been bugging me like crazy: I would be either have been watching several episodes of different anime, or even just sitting down in the evening for the first time to squeeze in a few episodes, like the ones that came out today, for example. I would go into the app, and it either takes forever to load, or I'd get some type of error message. I had been out all day, so I didn't even look at anything today, and yet, I get an error message.

I even switched out the Apple TV's (we have a 1st gen and a 3/4 gen Apple TV's), and sometimes the older gen will act right for a while, and then acts a fool, so I'll switch out with the younger one, and it'll act swell, and then act a fool. I've been going back and forth between the two, every so often, but it's been over the course of the past couple of months that this has ramped up. Is there something going screwy with this format, or is there an update that needs to be done? Thank goodness my hubby likes to watch Netflix on our Smart TV, or else I'd have pissed him off long ago!

Is anyone else having this issue??? Because frankly, I paid $60/year on this, so I would think I would be able to watch this on a bigger screen if I should so choose, or any other device for that matter. But I like being able to veg out on my couch and binge-watch my shows!

Nah, Crunchy Roll is doing that for everything. I tried it on everything I own the app for: Windows App, the main site via Laptop, Wii U, 360 and Android phone. It's been wonky on all of them. I'll be watching a show (doesn't matter which one) and it'll just freeze in random spots. Not buffer, [freeze. And just a bit ago I was getting the 'Error: Sorry, an error occurred!' message. It seems to be working now, though, so who knows? Maybe they were just having site difficulties, and they've fixed them now?

All I know, is, I hope it doesn't happen too often. Or maybe the next time it happens they could shut down the main site and just have a "We're having technical difficulties!" page up in its place, so that way we know what's going on and that they're trying to fix it. I've already sent them two error reports, one about the shows freezing in random spots, and the second about the site itself not working right. Either way, I hope it's back. At least until I can finish out the anime I'm currently watching. x3 (of course, knowing me, I'll just immediately start a new one)
