I wish them the best of luck

Mostly because between bockclocking anyone who isn't america out of 90% of thier stream and everything else wrong with thier service, they're going to need it in spades.

While I hope that they can pull it off since they're actually trying to help out, I'm not going to be one of those subscribers. I'm still hung up on how they started.

For Naruto, yes.
For the other shows, no, not yet.

Did they even fix the previous episodes of Naruto, or is it only the newest ones that are fixed?

Did they fix the rip-off pricing for 420p videos? Did they fix the rip-off pricing in general? For as few shows they have (despite how awesome skip beat is) the pricing is way too high

Did they fix the fact that the world outside the US can't watch 90% of the content even if they would want to pay for it?

Or the horrible, horrible, encoding quality that all of their streams have?

And the tons of other problems they have?

I wonder how much money does it cost to join something like that. Why haven't the other R1 distributors joined (besides Bandai Ent. who already has Bandai Channel, Bandai Visual and Sunrise already there)?

actually they have. ADV and Media Blasters both have shows on Crunchyroll. So other than funimation and bandai (which has its own competing service) they're all there in some way.

If Naruto continues for three more years they might just get that 10,000 subs.

Don't be fooled by the screen name. XP

Good luck with that! xD If I can't access their site to view like 95% of the time I'll never subscribe Mad I wish there was more consideration for fans outside of the US and Canada =\
