depends on where you currently live and which series you're trying to watch. from what i recall, some series are premium exclusive in Canada.

All I know is that some anime are region locked and there isnt much op can do about it. No upgrading to premium will not lift the region lock from as far as I know

Premium gives you no commercials, higher resolutions on the video, and same-day access as a simulcast episode airs in Japan. With ad-supported access, you have to wait a week for the latest episode, and you are limited to 480P max resolution.

Unless you are in Canada, premium has almost no effect on the availability of series.

CR doesn't hate your country, they just were unable to obtain the legal rights to air certain shows there, because some other company already has those rights for your region. Since CR does not have the rights, allowing you to see those specific shows would be in violation of those rights.

Those "free" sites are link aggregators pointing to illegally uploaded content, which has no licensing rights at all, and they do not pay the content creators anything. How long would you continue to work if you were paid nothing at all for your efforts, but other people were making money off of your work?

worth noting that animators are only paid about 200 yen per frame regardless. supporting the industry only mean animators can continue their work by being paid slave wages.

That's a problem caused by unfettered capitalism not being regulated enough by some higher power (such as government), and assuredly isn't limited to only the Anime industry. Electronics, diamonds, clothing/textiles, chocolate, rubber, palm oil, handbags, pornography, shrimp, coal mining, etc, all cause workers to suffer the same fate of effectively being slaves.
