I had completely forgotten about Viewster. How relevant are they compared to the other services?

Well, looks like I'm going to be watching ClassicaLoid on Viewster instead of Crunchyroll. Smile

Their greatest hit series is "Oops, this content is not available in your country Sad" Twisted Evil

In the last seasons they only mirrored some Sentai simulcasts and added some Retrocasts like "Meine Liebe" or "Tekkaman" (1975) but a lot of content is only restricted to certain areas.

They were large in UK and Scandinavia and noticeable in other parts of Europe - but while Crunchyroll and others included translated (French, Spanish, German, Italian) Subs for most of their library, Viewster streamed most only English Subbed.

Several titles expired this year.

Which ones exactly? I been watching Aria and Ghost in the Shell there in the US. Although right now those are the only shows they have in the US that caught my eye.

e.g. Hikaru no Go, Hayate the Combat Butler, Gintama, Keroro Gunsou (Sgt Frog), Your Lie in April

I don't know which of these were region-locked to europe only, but know they are 404.

Not terribly relevant, but they do have some exclusives that might be worth your time (such as Key the Metal Idol and Dr. Irabu's Office).

Sgt. Frog expired? Ah well, it's not like I could even watch it on Viewster since the series was region blocked in the US.
