I've been a member of Crunchyroll for a long time now. I've loved the service that i have gotten for many years. When i heard that you joined with funimation awhile back i thought cool, this might add more anime to an already great service (so i joined funimation) Now with VRV, sadly i think that this was a great mistake for both you and funimation. VRV started only as an app, then slowly started adding more services (understandable since its new) but my problem with vrv is that they don't show when or if they have new episodes, or update things. They have a limited catalog from both services and i don't think that they are improving anything with their coverage. I went premium on crunchyroll because of its dependability. and now i am getting spammed email to cancel my crunchyroll account to stay with vrv. I won't do that until they fix the problems they currently have. Allow the subtitles for dubbed anime, complete the catalog and fix their buggy / failing app.

Some titles can't be added to VRV due to license restrictions, apparently. Most of CR's catalog is on VRV, as is a large portion of FUNi's dubbed titles, but you might have to search for a specific title. New episodes should be automatically uploaded to VRV within a couple hours after they premiere on a service, if you don't see something within that timeframe, I would suggest reaching out to the @WatchVRV Twitter account to let the team know, or open a VRV support ticket.

I believe Funimation is already aware of the issue with sign & song subtitles, and there's been focus recently in the industry to make sure that closed captions are available on more titles in English.
