Crunchyroll on a Samsung TV
As I said before, Samsung TVs do not support watching Crunchyroll directly. There is no such app for Samsung.

There are several ways to do this: the Crunchyroll app works on other devices. You launch the app on your device, connect it to your TV and watch anime. Relating to Crunchyroll depends on your device. I will explain which devices you can use to watch Crunchyroll.

Crunchyroll was once available through Plex. Plex allows users to create plugins and install them to view various streaming services. But in 2018, Plex announced it was discontinuing plugin support.

So the Internet is rewriting the old information about being able to view Crunchyroll through Plex; it doesn’t work now.
