Signed up for VRV and followed the instructions to the T so I would keep premium status on Crunchyroll. Today I find out that I'm back to the free version. Where did I go wrong?


I was about to sign up for VRV doing the same thing (since I'm premium here) and I saw this.

Stopped right there.

I'll wait until this figure this all out and link things appropriately.

Ok, There is just 1 thing I want to know, If I get the combo package and let my membership on crunchyroll expire, will I still be able to use the Crunchyroll app and keep my premium on there? Because I like the idea of the combo package, but I would still prefer watching my anime using the crunchyroll app seperately and watch everything else on VRV

I just started the VRV combo pack trail today, and I can confirm that having premium membership on vrv gets you premium membership on crunchyroll. I was able to use both the crunchyroll website and xbone app without issue. A few minutes after linking my crunchyroll account, I got an email from crunchyroll saying that I now had premium membership.

Mind you, I created both accounts today, so I don't know if people with existing subscriptions are going to run into any problems. VRV has a very betaish feeling to it as a service, so I wouldn't be surprised if you run into some hiccups, but the premium combo pack is supposed to give you premium access to crunchyroll too. If anyone is running into trouble, I believe one of the vrv FAQs recommends loging out and back in to your account after activating your subscription.

I should also mention that on the vrv linked accounts page, it list my crunchyroll account as "not premium". I'm guessing that's a bug. On the crunchyroll website, it says I have premium membership.

How does switching to the VRV Combo Bundle impact the Crunchyroll Premium discount that is applied to the Anime Loot Crate subscriptions?

I signed up and linked with no issues. However there is no search functionality. The site is purely viral tiles pushing only the top shows. I hope this changes quickly. I will be going back to dedicated crunchyroll membership if it doesn't.

The interface is awful. It's like Amazon's interface. Can't find the show I want without drilling down half a dozen times. Would not pay for that service (I don't even like it as an alternative when CR is unusable on weekends), and I hope that the CR app isn't gotten rid of this in favor of VRV because that is made by the parent company. If that happens I will have to go elsewhere to watch anime

I tried VRV for a week and don't like the player controls for Crunchyroll anime. Cancelled, going back to regular site. Also got billed twice now for VRV and again $11.95 for Crunchyroll even though I linked the account and thought I cancelled my original Crunchyroll account payments. Must be the autopay on PayPal that is screwing up things. So far a pretty lousy experience. New player on Funimation sucks too, especially with Google Chrome. The best player is still the one currently in use on the original Crunchyroll site. Please don't switch this one!!!

VRV interface has no search function and no way to switch to smaller icons or text display to get more icons on the screen. Also no scrolling of icons like Netflix and no caption popups. The Brightcove player controls suck, won't hide after 'forward' and interruption and the cursor never hides itself. What's going on? Also arrow keys for forward and backward don't work anymore. Pretty disappointing player, especially in Chrome.

Horrible so far. VRV with a linked CR premium account and whet the Ad's would play the video stops and gets distorted for a few seconds and then continues.

Contrary to the new pop up on the CR app, the videos last night froze at the same points as did the CR app, but for a shorter duration.

I'd rather have CR only and no VRV.
I will never be interested in that other content.

Half my watching is done on my desktop and Apple TV anyway.

Once the set things up where you can link accounts on more than CR (I would want to link CR, Funi, and RT) then I might consider it. But since I currently don't have a Funimation account, and my RT account being grandfathered in from forever ago; it is cheaper for me to keep things as is. I would also want there to be a yearly subscription option.

Well I tried VRV on several different computers at several different locations and at several different times throughout the month, so I can definitely say that everything is working fine with connection and computers so..............The one main BIG probem I have encountered while on VRV is that I can't watch anything! I've tried watching random episodes on the website and it says which episode is playing but there is nothing but a black rectangle that shows absolutely nothing. why? Seems like this is really buggy and should be fixed before anyone attempts to buy subscriptions to this website.

Just curious, did you go to the profile and link your current CR account there, so you don't get ads? The beta web player and the Roku app both work for me.

Nothing works for me. I don't even get ads playing. The first time I tried my CR account there, but all the other times that I tried it has been the same thing, a blank black player. I haven't tried it though the Roku though, only through laptops and computers.
