I could tolerate some ads but their sound levels are way too high.

Let's assert that each episode on Crunchyroll has ten minutes worth of ads. Ten mins/episode of ads is still less than what you'd receive on standard T.V.. In order to help support this service and industry you either have to put up with the ads or pay to get rid of them. So if you can't stand advertisements but want to watch anime and help facilitate it's future, upgrade your membership. If it is abnormal for the ads to be as long as they are now, there must be a reason for it. Time or money, which is more important to you?

The feedback about the audio spikes during advertisements should be looked into. It may be better to open up a new thread specifically for that.

you can piggyback off of guest passes, that's what I do, not to skip the commercials, I don't have cable so I'm use to those things now, but I get GP so I can stream and read things that is available only for premium folks. it's an idea if you're stressed about the ads. late night tv is nothing but commercials I might add.

they aren't that long and it's not that big of a deal, I have seen commercials on TV longer than what they give us here.

I don't know where you watch TV, but that really isn't normal for episodes that are on their own 23 to 24 minutes long. The outcome should be about 30 minutes to be the same as standard TV, meaning it would make the most sense to have 6 minutes of ads, or about two minutes per break since there are usually three breaks. I personally can tolerate a little more, but the set up is so random that you can end up with four to five minute breaks and have a third of your time watching an episode being ads. Are Crunchyroll really that hard up for cash that they need 12 to 13 minutes of ads in addition to all the subscription money? While I mostly used Hulu before they went subscription-only it does seem to me as if Crunchyroll has become much worse on ads since they became effectively the only legit game in town.

I've dropped the premium service after 4 yrs & yikes ! There use to be only one ad before the show started & then it played (maybe with one quick one in the middle) . You can burn up some bandwidth with all these commercials . Guess they have to pay for those conventions instead of fixing the web player to HTML5 . Oh wait , I forgot about the VRV beta service...

I keep having a problem where the ads just don't stop. I'm right now going on to 18 ads in a row. Earlier I saw the exact same ad four times in a row. I don't mind ads but I thought this site was suppose to at least work.

Being cheap doesn't mean everyone can buy it and given all the constant bugs with the free service, I'm not sure I'd even want to give them money if I had it out of principle. They let you skip the longer ads, but there are always bugs and the whole thing is temperamental. Right now the issue I have is watching it in full screen means to skip ads I have to hit escape, but when I do that it just freezes on the frame and the sound keeps going. Been having that problem for weeks. Just one of many problems I get using the free ad-based service. Get a few weeks of peace and ease, but then it screws up again for weeks. It is at least a little better than the times when the ad just doesn't load and I can't skip it, though that usually only occasionally affects one particular episode in the bunch I watch persistently enough to make it literally unwatchable. People can say whatever they want, but while I have had some issues with other streaming services, it has never been this constantly bad with any other one I have used ad-based or otherwise.

not everyone is willing to openly trust websites with their personal info just to go without commercials and suddenly find a gaping hole in their pocket when the only thing Crunchyroll needs to do to keep people happy is to put in a grand total of three... you read correctly #3 ads with one at the beginning, one in the middle and one at the end of the video like the one website we all know and love YouTude instead of having 3-5 at the beginning, 3-5 in the middle and 3-5 at the end of a video.

Crunchyroll is cheap. $60/year at an hour a day I'm looking at about 16 cents a day. I have had my account for several years and have had no billing problems.

Now if only they would put a little of that money to make the search tools work I would be happy.
