I have a crunchyroll premium account but I just found out about VRV and its premium version. If I subscribe to VRV and I cancel my crunchyroll subscription will I still get all the perks or do I have to have a crunchyroll and a VRV subscription. Thanks.

You only need to pay once. You will need to link your account on VRV to this one on CR, which takes about a day sometimes, and you will have premium (but not Plus) status here as well, to read manga, and presumably shop in the store with discounts (but not free shipping), etc. I might wait to do the link until after you get the subscriptions and cancellations in order, but that's just me being cautious.

I do not know if you still get the 48-hour guest passes to give away, though. No one has answered that publicly on here that I have seen.

That does not work the same for Funimation or the other combo channels (yet?). For the rest, you need to watch those channels on VRV itself. Also, last I heard, Funi has not brought all their shows over to VRV, and the ones they did, they only brought the dubs (don't know if that's changed lately...), but subs for those should eventually show up here and in the CR channel.

The VRV site is pretty new, and doesn't have the controls in place the same as here. There is a watchlist, but you can't change the order. Your queue and history here does not transfer. You can search if you know a show you want to watch, but browsing is kind of painful without a complete alphabetic listing available, but then again, that's no different than Hulu or Amazon, or even Funimation now, I suppose.
