…The funny thing is I received the email announcing the price change 15 minutes after I got a Roku Friday morning. As I announced right after I did it, I bought a 12-month subscription in December. Crunchyroll went on to mention in the email those who are current subscription holders will NOT see the price jump until May 2020. What this means for me is when it’s time for me to renew this coming December, I will pay $60 like I did last year. Next year, the price is will be $80.
Note that this is only for the annual Premium Subscription. The Premium+ Subscription as well as recurring monthly subscriptions are not effected by this from what I can find. We can only speculate the possible reasons for the +$20 price increase but I still plan to renew at the new price. For what you get, it’s worth it. More so with the new anime coming next year as well as the anime getting a new season next year.
I mentioned at the top I just got a Roku. I no longer need to use my Playstation 4 to stream Crunchyroll, Viki, Asian Crush and other stuff. Now that I do have a Roku, I can use the Xfinity App to once again watch Adult Swim on TV. I haven’t really watched much in part because my laptop broke but also because I can watch the current lineup on Crunchyroll Subbed anyway. Next month, the Spring Season Premeires for several Anime are supposed to begin. Most notably Attack on Titan’s Season 3 resumes so…yeah. While yeah it will likely be simulcast because of the previous deal between Funimation and Crunchyroll but you can still get the latest episode in advance on Crunchyroll.
