I may be wrong here but it is my understanding that (theoretically) if you go to the anime list it should automatically filter out any shows you are region blocked from viewing. Here is a link for it: Even if it doesn't work out that way at least you can use the list to check them individually because that would be the only sure fire way of knowing.

The shows are filtered for me so I would guess that applies to everyone as I haven't found any toggle button for turning filtering off and on. But I would rather have a complete list of all the shows on this site because I want to know what shows are running and are popular. Unless you can find anything on the Site News section of the forum you have to search for the anime manually, which is hard when you don't know what you are looking for. Or, you click on a direct news link on the front page etc.
Therefore I hope they change the list in the future to the point where it shows all the shows on Crunchyroll and instead gives you the option of turning available shows on and off. Moreover, they can add indicators next to a show's name on the list so people can tell whether it is available or not before clicking on it. Furthermore it would be great to add licensing information under show info that tells which countries can view this particular series and what countries are planned to be added in the near future. Crunchyroll is an American site so it is not surprising that all (A calculated guess) shows are always available in North America. Logically, this should be a prerequisite for any addition to the site. After North America, availability is highest for Western Europe countries followed by English speaking Commonwealth countries. I base this on the licensing information provided on the Site News section of the forum. This pattern seems the most economically viable for a dot com site with monthly membership fees. Meaning the countries with the most premium members are prioritized first in descending order. So I would conclude that the reason you cannot view the unavailable shows on the list anymore would be because they want to screen other members from noticing the gap in availability between Crunchyroll members.
