I get the feeling that CR secretly rolled out an update to their site, because a few months ago you could VPN-load the site and enjoy US content until you close your browser, and now they give you an error 404 as soon as the VPN shuts down, so you have to turn it on again to reload the episode.


Correct, CR no longer bases the library off your session ID but uses your IPs geoloc continuously.


Though since today, it seems that it works the old way again. CR had some server problems in the last couple of days, so maybe VPNs aren't their #1 problem right now

I will be honest. The IP thing is creepy. If they can use it for anime, they can certainly use it to keep users safe from bots and perverts. But no. Just the anime.

How their IP ban system works is probably like this:

- They have someone who provides a list of IP's used by common VPN providers
- They ban people using those IP's automatically

Get creative with using a VPN or use a small VPN service in the USA not yet blocked :D

They cannot block every IP and there are a lot of small time VPN's where someone uses their internet connection as the VPN which might just show up as a house IP address that CR wouldn't know to ban.

We usually block those ranges we see malicious traffic from. E.g. those IP ranges from which we see attempts to steal accounts, abuse of site functionality, payment fraud, etc.
That kind of traffic oftentimes comes in from VPNs or from servers hosted at the same hosting companies as certain VPN providers.

So if the VPN you use ends up being blocked, it is usually due to someone else on that VPN doing unwarranted or criminal things.

I just recently got premium for one year and now found out how much I get for what I pay compared to what Americans get for what they pay. It's extremely unfair how I can watch only one fourth of all the anime on here and have to pay the same price. Was a huge mistake.

While i was reading this thread, i was remembering that there was a new law applied against geo-blocking in the eu not that long ago.

I thought, this would remove geoblocking for all online services and treat all of europe as "one region", but obviously some lobby groups have killed the original purpose of this law, and it does not apply to services providing copyrighted content, you know, the stuff it should regulate.

And politicians don't know, why the voters have lost trust in them and their politics...

The European law you are thinking of is about content portability when you are traveling. It does not give you additional content in your home country.

Strange decision, why? I’m used to using VeePN and I’m sure that many people too. Confidentiality and security is the most important thing in our case, so I believe that the use of the VPN should be legal. So just ask about unblocking you. IMAO
