I'm pretty sure this idea has been brought up before but just to make sure, WHY CAN'T WE DOWNLOAD SHOWS OFFLINE!! My internet sucks so if I could download my shows and watch them offline it'll help me watch all my favorite shows, please help me out crunchyroll team.

I assume the issue of licensing rights. Crunchyroll may be rolling out such a feature eventually, or so I have heard. Competition with Anime Strike is forcing their hand.

Crunchyroll is currently working on offline streaming for their app. They rolled it out on VRV recently, so now we are just waiting for the official Crunchyroll app to get the feature as well. I would hope that it is not too far off in the future.

Funimation is doing it. They have to make sure you don't take your downloaded content out of your region though

Assuming you are in the US (VRV is only available in the US) and have a premium account on Crunchyroll, you can just create a free account on VRV, then link your Crunchyroll account to the VRV account. That gives you premium access to the Crunchyroll channel on VRV without paying extra.

If you did buy the VRV combo for $9.99/month (which would include the Crunchyroll and Funimation and other channels on VRV) you could cancel renewal on your Crunchyroll account and could still link it--that would then result in your Crunchyroll account becoming premium again.
