Not sure where to post this so will post it here.

Is CR accessible globally?

I ask because I will be traveling abroad for a bit.

Also, it would be great if I can download episodes offline, just like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, for traveling purposes.

Moved to Site Support/Minor Questions.

Yes, but the content available to you depends on what country you are in. This means that if you are usually in the US or Canada and you travel anywhere else, you will have fewer titles available to you when you are in those other countries. If you are traveling to Asia your options on CR will be very limited, and will be virtually 0 in Japan.

Crunchyroll does not currently offer a way to download episodes for offline access.

Any way to see what shows will be available in which countries?

Hong Kong and Singapore for example.

If you are currently in one of those countries, you can visit the "Alpha All" page and see what is available there. Someone located elsewhere in the world cannot tell you what will show up, though. /videos/anime/alpha?group=all

But I can say that both of those, since they are classified in the "Asia" region are hardly going to have any shows at all, if even any... CR mostly can't stream to Asia due to others there already having some kind of standing license agreements with Japan, or perhaps Japan even reserves that for themselves.

Now, if you were to visit Guam, and found a good internet connection while you were there, that would be a whole different story...

Ok thanks. Maybe I’ll just have to switch over to Kindle for my travels... (not kidding).

A bit of good news is that in Singapore you would be able to view Dog Days'' (the 3rd series), which is totally unavailable on CR outside of a few countries in Asia. You might as well take advantage of that while you are there (assuming you have any interest).

Thanks, will keep in mind. I might not go to Singapore but Hong Kong is certainly in the cards. Anyway it's all just for a few days.
