I'm wondering how I can watch anime in India legally when we don't have any channel right now AND Crunchyroll doesn't release anime for India.

  • Are VPNs legal in India? This is called geo-blocking and you can use a VPN to get around it. India may have laws around this, and I know none of India's laws.

Muse Asia is now streaming anime for free via YouTube in Asia And There are about 120 shows offered on Crunchyroll in India with 160 on Netflix and about 30 through Amazon Prime. but crunchy roll is not working properly


Unless the streaming company actually releases for your region, there is no legal way to consume that media.

    @Peilonrayz: It seems that you're referencing an Australian FAQ. To be blunt, the ideal approach to consume media online is to just go straight to the online streaming site. There's a specific reason that geoblocks exist at all, and circumventing may not be illegal in one country, but may be illegal in another. We are not here to determine what jurisdictions are OK to use a VPN with and which ones aren't, so I would much rather err on the side of caution and explicitly state, if it isn't permitted by the main streaming service without workarounds, it's probably not legal.

  • If you edit your answer so that it's inline with what your comment says then I'd remove the downvote. However currently you've just said something that is false.

    @Peilonrayz: It's not false. The nature and relationship of VPNs and streaming sites is complicated. There is a fundamental difference between being able to leverage a VPN to consume media, and being permitted to use a VPN to consume media. I refuse to give jurisdiction-sensitive advie, and since I'm definitely not in India, the more appropriate answer is that it's just not allowed so long as a geoblock exists. It would suck to go buy a VPN to later get denied access because that site decided to block your VPN.

  • I believe you are more than capable to change your answer from absolutes.
