About Crunchyroll History
In 2006 crunchyroll was started as non profit video streaming site to provide East Asian videos. This website became more and more popular among users and they were able to secure capital investment of around $4.05 million. At that time users are allowed to upload anime episodes, drams to their site. That lead users to upload illegal copies of licensed titles. So many criticism are came from anime distributors and licensors Bandai Entertainment and Funimation.
However Crunchyroll eventually began securing legal distribution agreements with companies, including Gonzo, for an increasing number of titles. On January 8, 2009, after announcing a deal with TV Tokyo to host episodes of Naruto Shippuden, Crunchyroll stated that it was committed to removing all copyright-infringing material from its site and to hosting only content to which it had legitimate distribution rights.
Crunchyroll now available on Roku devices, Boxee, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles, and Vizio, Google, Apple TV, WiiWare and Internet enabled televisions.
