New and ongoing programmes on Crunchyroll will no longer be available for free streaming | Crunchyroll image by (Smarttechvillas)

Crunchyroll, the anime streaming service, said in an update that it would no longer provide free ad-supported viewing for freshly released episodes. However, for only $7.99 a month, Crunchyroll’s premium subscriptions are the only way to see new and ongoing episodes of your favourite shows.

There was a trade-off before the change: free users had to wait one week for new episodes to be released, while members could see them immediately. As long as I was able to see the new episodes, I was happy to put up with a few little inconveniences.

Crunchyroll, on the other hand, no longer allows free users to view delayed simulcasts at all. As part of Crunchyroll’s new policy, which will take effect in the spring of 2022, a “seasonal sampler,” or a selection of simulcasts expected to premiere during the spring 2022 season, will be made available to users starting this spring.

Meanwhile, until May 31st, Crunchyroll will be offering the first three episodes of each programme in the sampler for free. After the first few episodes, you’ll need a paid Crunchyroll membership to see the whole simulcast library. Crunchyroll has said that all of its users can keep watching old episodes for free.

Last year, Sony purchased Crunchyroll for $1.175 billion, but the service has just lately begun making significant modifications. for example, Funimation’s anime collection was transferred to Crunchyroll earlier this month as part of a plan to progressively integrate the two sites. nonetheless, being a blow to Crunchyroll fans who’ve been using the site for free for years, the streaming company says it “will continue to provide free material moving ahead.” It also opens the possibility that Crunchyroll could opt to charge for additional content in the future.
