Over the past 5-8 years now I can't even remember that I've been a paying member almost since day one of them going legit just so I could have the best Naruto experience I have loved and told everybody about crunchyroll.

NO ADDS AND GREAT STREAMING ANIME!!!!

hell I would pay more...... BUT......

Now every site I go to spams with VRV adds...... and when I logged into Crunchy roll today.... It gave me a fucking VRV pop up add...... WTF am I paying for....... STOP SPAMMING WITH ME YOUR SHITTY VRV adds.... .I dont fucking want your shitty VRV......

I have netflix and crunchy roll I need nothing else..... STOP FORCING ME TO SEE YOUR SHITTY VRV adds....

Its bad enough you've spent my CR money on VRV when you've failed to pick up some decent series....

damn every time I see a VRV add I think about dropping my sub....

I've left this thread in place, but have deleted the posts you made copying and pasting this exact same complaint into several others threads. I understand your concern. I find the pop ups kind of annoying also. However, no matter how angry or distressed you are, that does not mean it's appropriate to spam the help forums.

I have to agree with him, I have been paying for cruncyroll for awhile now and have loved it. The no ads to date has been worth it, but now I have to click off these annoying popups constantly. I GET IT, your marketing team is aggressively pushing VRV to the annoyance of its customers. Thats great. Awesome. Can it stop after the 20th "no thanks" though ? Do I need to build a chrome extension or switch to Hulu to watch my anime in peace?

I pay a premium membership not to see ads. How do I turn off pop-ups from VRV?

What pop-ups are you guys getting? Maybe it's because I have adblock and block popups, but I only ever see an annoying but unintrusive bar near the top of the site.

I've see them when clicking into my queue, and also when clicking on "Shows" from the main menu. I think it might be limited to happen only once a day or per session because I don't think it happens ever single time I visit those pages.

That bar at the top is semi-intrusive... it offsets the entire page to show me something that enrages me........ I DONT WANT TO SEE YOUR SHITTY VRV SERVICE.....

Saw the overlay today. I use crunchyroll because it is convenient. Ads are inconvenient. I don't mind returning to illegitimate sources to avoid ads.

I assume that means that you would be using torrents rather than visiting illegal streaming sites.

@appletongamer and others

I just have something to say, if you are complaining about the VRV thing, you obviously didn't check what the question mark next to the 'No Ads' thing for premium membership was. No where does it state that they will not show ads for sponsors (which I'm assuming VRV is) and only remove ads from videos. See for yourself.

So to be honest, in my opinion complaining for something you signed up for and not actually understanding what you signed up for (while blaming others for it) can be considered spam. But that's just my opinion, I'm not a mod or anything, but that's my understanding of what premium is based on the description given by the comparison for the different memberships.

I don't care what the terms are. I don't care what your view on my standpoint is either. I don't care how you rationalize or compartmentalize my statements. I don't care if the ads are sponsored or not sponsored. I don't care if there is an opt out, or a chrome extension, or a script. No ads.

This is not a matter of opinion or comprehension. This is me giving feedback in the suggestions/feedback section that I consider this worthy to walk away from the service over.

Are you affiliated with Crunchyroll in some meaningful way?

I believe they've shown ads, even for Premium members, on the front page for a long time now. This one happens to come from the parent company that both CR and VRV belong to.

So, if you didn't care about what you were signing up for to begin with because all you cared about was what you wanted which is not what the service even provides, then why did you even sign up for it? That's not logical to me, it just seems silly if anything. Also, saying you'll just go back to illegitimate means for watching shows because you find ads annoying is more of a statement than a feedback on something. Feedbacks need to be informative about an issue that has occurred, but by the service you signed up for, there is nothing wrong with what you have received, therefore its not actually feedback on something wrong. Now if you wanted to make a suggestion for them to remove that you would have to explain better than it 'being annoying' because there are a lot of things that can be annoying that we have to deal with in everyday life, and removing something annoying for one person will annoy others. Not to mention that as a business they have done nothing wrong, while you as a customer are demanding more than what you paid for. Now, a suggestion that would work is make another form of premium that will remove all ads (including from sponsors) with no other features added or part of a higher rate feature to solve this problem, I mean this IS a suggestion section as you've stated.

As to your last question, I've already stated what my affiliation is, I can't help you if you didn't note that in my post.
