New pop culture streaming service, VRV, includes Crunchyroll, Funimation, Nerdist, Rooster Teeth

If you enjoy watching Anime, then there’s no denying that you know that name Crunchyroll. For the last few years, Crunchyroll has been the leading streaming service for anything Anime. Regardless if you’re a seasoned vet or if you’ve just discovered the genre, Crunchyroll has just about everything that can satiate your hunger for anime. But with millions of subscribers and hundreds upon hundreds of shows, Crunchyroll’s parent company Ellation felt like there was something missing.

When it comes to streaming shows online, there’s a number of different services that can stream your favorite shows or genres. But trying to keep up with all of them separately can be a real task. To alleviate that headache, Ellation has launched a new streaming service called VRV, with the promise to bring together all your favorite streaming sites into one convenient location.

VRV was launched in 2016, since then, thousands of subscribers have signed up for the streaming service. VRV was launched to be the quintessential place for “geeks and gamers that loved comedy, fantasy, and technology.” Currently, VRV streams about eleven different services. They include Drama Fever for fans of popular Asian dramas, Shudder for avid horror fans, Funimation & Crunchyroll for anime fans, Mubi for the cinephiles, and of course the popular Rooster Teeth and Nerdist.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been using VRV to catch up on anime favorite, “My Hero Academia.”  I found VRV to be very easy to navigate through. It was easy to select a channel I wanted to watch, and I was glad to see that on the homepage they would recommend some popular shows that I might be interested in. During the episodes, I was watching it was very easy to navigate through them, though on my PS4 console, I found it to be tricky sometimes, but not in the way that was frustrating. What I really liked about VRV was that it was available on many devices. If I wanted to I can watch VRV on my computer, or on my tablet or smartphone, and even on my PS4. Giving me the ease of access to take VRV with me wherever I went.

Nowadays it’s not uncommon to watch TV shows through streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. But sometimes they don’t carry your favorite “geeky” tv show, and if they did, it would be further down the road after everyone’s already seen it. What VRV does is give all of us anime fans a chance to keep up with popular animes. VRV also gave me the flexibility to watch ‘My Hero Academia’ either in its original Japanese audio with subtitles, or an English dubbed version by just switching channels. Of course, If I wanted a change of pace and switch away from anime, I can easily do so without having to log in to another website. And in this fast-paced world of ours with everyone constantly on the go, it’s good to have everything you want under one roof.
