People have to realise that things aren't that simple. Crunchyroll does it's best to bring what they're able to license to as many regions as they possibly can, however they're not always able to secure the rights to some regions because other companies already hold these rights, so they do not have permission by law to show the titles in those regions. So stop screaming in anger at Cruncyroll, get mad at who ever blocked them from getting the rights in your country.

Thanks, that answered my last question. Sometimes some people are not as lucky as others. Looks like it was my turn to not be lucky

I'll stick to Hunter x Hunter for now.

If you move to Canada where I am, then you can watch One Piece. It is based upon the IP address where you are; it doesn't know or care where your bought your laptop. Of course this is why... we can't say.

For instance when I traveled to India recently I could watch about six simulcasts. If you think Europe has it bad, try India!

That makes the assumption that CR is the one that gets to pick and chose where it is available.

It isn't as if CR gets to enter some virtual market somewhere that has price tags on every country, and say "I'll take this one and that on, but not this one". Some countries may be unavailable at any price (due to existing contracts), some countries may be handled by a different company or agency, and for some the licensor may simply demand a minimum guarantee that CR knows would result in a loss.

Can someone tell me why I'm paying for a lesser service compared to NA subscribers?

This is actually making me contemplate ending my subscription and I refuse to believe CR done what it could in regards to One Piece showings in the UK & EU, if it done anything at all.

Having One Piece would've felt real value for money as the tons of "kawaii-desu animes" that CR has in abundance does little for me. So instead of having a feeling of value for my money, I'm feeling ROBBED.

If nothing changes on this by the the time my sub renewal comes around the mid of this month I will be ENDING it.

If a customer is paying for a service and he is granted some goods and restricted from others there should be an explanation.

That's not an explanation, its a claim. Repeating a claim does not make it any more true.


It might not be a detailed explanation that divulges privatized contract agreements but an explanation nonetheless.


And they do that, its right there in the FAQ:

4. Why are some Titles not available in my country?

While we try to get worldwide availability for all of our titles, due to the vagaries of licensing restrictions we cannot promise that every single title released on Crunchyroll will be available in all countries. Detailed territorial restrictions are displayed on each video page. We are continuously asking for more rights for more regions. Please be patient and check back for more updates! For a complete list of what is currently available in your area, please check out our Anime and Drama lists.


You are therefore demanding an explanation over and above the explanation they have already given


A few days ago I ordered the mystery manga box set and several hours later my order was cancelled. I was refunded, they gave me a simple explanation that the deal was only available for US citizens and a profound apology. They told me why I couldn't get my purchase without divulging information about the arrangement with Rightstuff, but the same done for a licensed anime would be a ridiculous demand according to yourself.


But they've done that much, long before this particular title was licensed they gave the "simple explanation" that you are now demanding.

When the simple explanation is already provided, and someone, as you did, demands "an explanation", the questions about your demand are what additional detail about the "vagaries of licensing restrictions" that you are claiming you are entitled to, and could you make a clear, coherent explanation why customers are actually entitled to it.

After all, the next step is to say, "somebody else has the rights" or "somebody is in negotiation for the rights", and that is already entering 21 questions territory of handing out clues to the details of licensing negotiations.

If UK fans of One Piece want to track down the actual specific source of the licensing restriction to try to lobby them to permit Crunchyroll to have streaming rights in the UK, they've got to do the work themselves. Crunchyroll can't get involved in something like that without spoiling their relationships with the licensors in Japan.

And I'm confident that there are UK members on this site would not trade-off less anime in return for your satisfying your curiosity about the details of licensing restrictions.


I was going to respond in full but I think I've wasted enough of my time arguing against your multi-layered technicalities and ability to repeatedly take my words out of context. From my first response to now you've refused to acknowledge in any instance that CR has handled the matter poorly and instead propose we customers are the ones in the wrong for voicing our frustrations and our rights to be kept informed.
