You can link VRV to a Crunchyroll account to enjoy the best that both platforms have to offer.
The best part is that you don’t have to pay for premium subscriptions for both accounts. However, you must have subscribed to a premium version of either account.
Users who have a premium subscription on VRV can now turn their free Crunchyroll account into a premium account by linking the two services.
If you link VRV to Crunchyroll, you will get 100 percent of the benefits you enjoy on your VRV premium account on Crunchyroll. The same applies to premium Crunchyroll and free VRV.
That means you will access all the Crunchyroll premium streaming services and perks, including ad-free viewership, discounts, and manga app access without paying for it.
If you have paid for both services, you will need to cancel the premium membership of one after linking so that you do not pay twice.
How to create a Crunchyroll VRV link
Linking the two accounts depends on which one is premium.
If you have already paid your subscription on Crunchyroll’s standalone platform:
- Go to the VRV website and create an account
- On the upper right corner of the home page, click on the Account > Settings
- Select Link Accounts from the drop-down list
- Provide your Crunchyroll account details and follow the steps to complete the process
If you have a VRV premium account or a Crunchyroll premium account on the VRV website, then:
- Go to the vrv.co
- Open the Account Settings
- Select Account Linking and follow the steps to connect Crunchyroll to VRV
- Sign up for the Combo pack
- Go to your Crunchyroll account and cancel your subscription
Note: If you do not cancel your Crunchyroll premium service subscription after activating the combo pack on the VRV website, you will get charged for both accounts.
Membership for the Combo Pack will automatically renew each month. You can cancel your subscription at any time if you are no longer interested in accessing premium features.
How to unlink Crunchyroll and VRV
You can unlink the two accounts by contacting support for assistance. You can also do this by following the same steps used to connect VRV to Crunchyroll.
Just log in to the VRV website and click on Account options, then select Account Linking and fill out the requisite information to unlink.
Should I cancel Crunchyroll and get VRV?
While Crunchyroll and VRV provide almost similar services, you would not want to use one as a total replacement for the other. Both services have unique advantages.
For instance, Crunchyroll is more reliable when it comes to keeping track of what you have watched and copying this history across multiple devices.
On the other hand, people find it easier to search and play episodes on VRV than Crunchyroll.
Remember that VRV is free with Crunchyroll and vice versa. Therefore, you don’t have to pay for both services.
If you are a new user, you can try out the free version of both services to get an idea of what each offers. Doing this will help you make an informed decision on which one to upgrade.
