New Beta Feature for Premium+ Members: Simulcast Calendar

Hello Crunchyroll! In our continuing efforts to make the Crunchyroll site even better, our engineers have come up with a new feature: an updated Simulcast Calendar that lets you easily discover and explore the new titles that we broadcast from Japan each day!

Right now, we’re still working on making the Simulcast Calendar the best it can be, so the feature is currently in beta. We’re giving our Premium+ members the opportunity to play around with this calendar first and provide feedback, which will go directly into future improvements for the feature leading up to our wide release. The page will prompt you for feedback via a pop-up in the bottom right corner - please fill it out and have your voice heard!

The Simulcast Calendar looks great and lets you schedule your viewing habits at a glance. We hope you all enjoy this as much as we do!

In short: if you’re a Premium+ member, you now have access to the beta version of our new Simulcast Calendar, the best new way to explore our weekly simulcast lineup!

TUNE in at 3:30pm to hear all about our AX 2015 plans from @sailorbee and @danikaharrod ~ !!
