Streaming Anime, K-Dramas and More on Crunchyroll, Now Made Easy for Couch Potatoes
San Francisco, CA and Tokyo, Japan (October 30, 2009) — Crunchyroll and Boxee announced
a partnership today to provide Anime and Asian drama fans an even easier and convenient way
to watch their favorite shows anytime they want from their living room couch. With the largest
online collection of legal Anime and Asian entertainment, Crunchyroll has quickly grown to
become a fan favorite website with over five (5) million unique registered users. Using Boxee’s
free downloadable software, fans will have an even easier way to stream all their favorite anime,
k-dramas and more from the Internet onto their televisions. The best part is that Boxee provides
users the ability to navigate Crunchyroll’s videos with a simple remote control from the comfort
of their couch or bed. Additional bonuses include the ability for fans to share what they are
watching with friends and social networks. More information can be found at

“Boxee’s free software for Windows, Mac, and Linux does a good job of integrating personal
media with Internet media, overlaying both with social features. These features let Crunchyroll
fans share information about what they are watching with friends and social networks like
Twitter and Facebook,” states Crunchyroll CEO Kun Gao. “Partnering with Boxee means not
only a better experience for our users, but also more exposure for our content.”

“Crunchyroll is an ideal Boxee partner because they’ve focused on creating a great user
experience while working with content owners. They’ve ensured their users have access to all
the best premium content for less than the cost of a meal at McDonaldsTM,” states Andrew
Kippen, Boxee’s VP of Marketing. “Add on that Crunchyroll subscribers can get content within
an hour of the broadcast time in Asia, and you’ve got a really compelling service that we’re
excited about bringing to the TV screen.”
