Crunchyroll brings their VRV streaming service to the Amazon Fire TV

A new VRV app from Crunchyroll has just arrived in the Fire TV appstore for all Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV television models. The streaming service dubs itself as “a video experience for anime, animation, gaming, comedy, sci-fi, and tech fans.” VRV consists of multiple channels including Crunchyroll, Funimation, Rooster Teeth, Cartoon Hangover, Geek & Sundry, Nerdist, MONDO, Tested, Shudder, MUBI, CuriosityStream, DramaFever, and VRV Select. You can watch select episodes for free with ads or pay $9.99 per month for complete ad-free access to all content.

    Is there some sort of catch or do VRV subscribers really get access to the full catalog of all those services?

    $10 a month seems like a too good to be true deal consider that Mubi is $8, Shudder is $5, Crunchyroll is $7, Funanimation is $6, CuriosityStream is $3, etc.

      10 bucks gets everything, but you MUST use the VRV app/site. You can not go login to Crunchyroll and have full access. Plus VRV does not do live streaming (yet the claim) from any of the channels it carries, you have to wait until the show is over then you will be able to watch it.

        It does not get the whole catalog from Crunchyroll or Funimation. But you can link your Crunchyroll profile to give you premium access on the Crunchyroll app/website. Unfortunately that same link doesn’t exist with Funimation so you will be missing some big titles like DBZ and One Piece.

          One Piece is on there now. Plus they do have Dragon Ball Super so it’s not like they are missing all that many titles. Given the sheer amount of anime and manga that actually exists in the world, they aren’t missing all too much. Plus they gave me a free a premium Crunchyroll subscription so as to not double bill me when I told VRV that I wasn’t trying to use their service because One Piece was the reason I subscribed to Crunchyroll in the first place. So they literally said until we put One Piece on VRV we’ll pay for you CR subscription. So in any event, they are willing to accommodate and work things out for you(the customer).

      I have listed ‘the catch’ in the reply below. Basically they don’t tell you that you are missing titles up front and you will have to notice missing titles yourself between the services. I got suckered into it earlier last year and cancelled my sub after I couldn’t find some big Funimation Now titles.
