What is Crunchyroll, and how can I watch it?

Crunchyroll is an anime fan’s dream come true. It’s one of the biggest names in streaming services for the biggest fans of the genre. And while users all over the world can access Crunchyroll to watch thousands of episodes or cult shows, such as Attack on Titan, Hunter X Hunter or Yuri On Ice, not all titles are available to everyone.

In fact, some countries won’t be able to access the service at all, due to the nature of its content.

Due to licencing restrictions, the full catalogue of shows is only available to viewers and subscribers in the US. However, with StreamLocator, you can access the US catalogue and all of the restricted content you’ve been missing.

Only Crunchyroll’s paid subscribers have access to their simulcast shows—usually available only an hour after they originally air—as well as some of the most sought after and classic titles. So if you want to watch Black Clover, My Hero Academia, or Ace of the Diamond at the earliest possible opportunity, you’ll need to subscribe to one of Crunchyroll’s Premium plans.

For $7.99US per month, you can watch everything on offer, without those annoying ads interrupting your shows. Free service accounts are ad-supported, showing 2 or 3 ad-breaks during a typical 20-minute show. All tiers support 1080p streaming, but you won’t get access to the simulcasts or many of their best features without a premium subscription.

If you’re an out-and-out anime fan, then Crunchyroll should be up at the top of your list. And with StreamLocator, nothing is off-limits.

How can I watch Crunchyroll with StreamLocator?

StreamLocator provides the Crunchyroll servers with a virtual location in the US. This allows users to connect to previously restricted content and catalogues.

With our unique smart hub doing the hard work behind the scenes, you don’t have to worry about a thing.

No complicated settings or software installation required

Unlike many other services and systems, StreamLocator doesn’t need you to download and install software on any of the devices you plan to use to watch your streams. There aren’t any complicated DNS settings or profiles to amend or install either. All you have to do is plug in and log on.

Our smart hub works with your WiFi router. Our system automatically manages any device that connects through your home network. StreamLocator works with devices that you can’t always download a VPN app or Smart DNS service to. It’s compatible with all WiFi routers, it’s always turned on, and ready to go to work for you.

Our system doesn’t impact your Internet speeds in the slightest, or with any of your usual online activities.

Another great feature StreamLocator offers that most other systems don’t is that you can connect as many devices as you like. You’re not limited to one, two, or three streaming connections; you can have just as many as you want or need. Even better, each one can connect to a different service in a completely different country. StreamLocator provides a virtual location for each one—all at the same time.

How to watch Crunchyroll’s full catalogue from outside the USA

Crunchyroll uses geolocation tracking to pinpoint its viewer’s whereabouts, and with that, they decide which content users are allowed to access.

VPN and Smart DNS provide virtual locations to get around these blocks, giving viewers access to the programs they want to see.

To watch Crunchyroll’s unlimited catalogue, you’ll need a method to make Crunchyroll believe you’re in the United States.

How to register for Crunchyroll from outside the USA

With StreamLocator in place, registering for Crunchyroll US is just as easy as if you were in the country.

There are plenty of payment options to choose from, including paying through PayPal, iTunes, using Crunchyroll Gift Cards, or gifting someone (or yourself!) membership through their website.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Crunchyroll from outside the USA?

VPN and Smart DNS services are the most typical ways to crack the geo-blockades. Depending on the service and their systems, one may be preferable over the other. Service providers are becoming increasingly vigilant against some of more well-known VPN providers and in defending against their addresses and servers.

Recognizing over-utilized IP addresses, those on blacklists, or that connect far too many users to be from a single household; these are some of the methods the more vigilant service providers utilize.

StreamLocator works in a different way to other systems. It takes advantage of a range of technologies, communicating with the provider’s servers to find out which is the best one to get around their system. Once it knows the best option, that’s what it uses to grant you the access you need. What’s better, it does all of this without you having to do a thing. Your connection is seamless and automatic. How’s that for a piece of smart-tech?

How to unblock Crunchyroll

Using StreamLocator is easy. Once you’ve connected our plug-and-play smart hub to your router, all you have to do is activate your subscription, and you’ll have a new network—STREAMLOCATOR—to connect with.

You can use this network for all of your devices—granting them access to any and all of the restricted content you couldn’t connect to before.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Crunchyroll for free?

Crunchyroll has a free tier in addition to a paid subscription and remains that way however you connect. The beauty of StreamLocator, though, is that your subscription now gets you access to their entire catalogue, not just the programs they have the rights to broadcast in your country.
