How to get Crunchyroll on Samsung TV

Greetings to anime fans! Let me guess. Do you want to watch your favorite titles on the bigger screen of your Samsung TV but can’t find the Crunchyroll app in the Smart Hub app store? Well, you’re not alone. I have faced this problem, too.

Indeed, while the Crunchyroll app may be available on other Smart TVs (e.g., with Android TV), it’s still not on TizenOS. But let’s not just give up. I have found enough ways for you to watch anime on your Samsung TV without any problems.

First, let’s not forget that Samsung TV with TizenOS has an Internet browser. And that means you can go to the Crunchyroll website, log in to your account, and… watch anime. This method is probably the easiest. But there are also others.

For example, you can cast content on your TV screen using the Cast option via the Crunchyroll mobile app. And, of course, if you have a set-top box with Android TV, PS4/5, Xbox, Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, or Amazon Fire TV, you can easily install Crunchyroll there and watch anime as much as you want.

If you need detailed instructions on the above methods, you will find them below.

How to watch Crunchyroll on Samsung TV via browser

I think you know that using the browser on any Smart TV is often very tedious. You’re moving the cursor for a long time to get to the right button or typing one letter at a time using the virtual TV keyboard and arrow keys on your remote.

But it’s the best option because you don’t need a third-party device for stable watching. The only thing you really need is a good internet connection. So take care of that in advance.

Once you’re ready, do the following:

  • Open Internet Browser from your Samsung TV Home screen. It should be in the list of apps by default.
  • Then click the + icon at the top to open a new tab.
  • In the address bar, enter and go to the website.
  • After that, click on the Account icon at the top right corner and select Log In.
  • Once entering your Crunchyroll account, find the anime you want to watch and click on it.
  • Wait for the player and video to load, and enjoy.

You can change the dubs and subtitles language by clicking on the gear icon, as well as rewind and pause using the keys on your remote control (the cursor on the TV screen). To expand the video to full screen, simply click on the two arrows at the bottom right.

How to cast Crunchyroll on Samsung TV via iPhone or Android

Well, the first thing I tried after the browser was Screen Mirroring. In fact, this idea seemed to work for me until I ran into one problem.

As you know, thanks to Screen Mirroring on both iPhone and Android, you can see everything happening on your smartphone on the TV screen. It turned out that not everything. When I tried to play Crunchyroll videos this way, the mobile app told me this option was unavailable. And to watch the anime, I need to exit the Screen Mirroring mode.

As far as I understand, Crunchyroll and some other streaming apps detect and, for some reason, block viewing content through Screen Mirroring. Luckily, the Crunchyroll app has a Cast option. That is, you can stream videos to your Samsung TV using AirPlay or Chromecast.

You can even go to the Crunchyroll website on your iPhone or Android and cast from there. I’ll show you how below:

Via Crunchyroll mobile app

  • Open Crunchyroll on your smartphone and play the content you want to watch on your Samsung TV.
  • Then tap on the Cast icon in the playback menu.
  • Finally, select your Samsung TV from the list and wait for sync.

The video should appear on your TV. If not, try the following option.

Via Crunchyroll mobile website

  • Open a web browser on your iPhone or Android and go to
  • Sign in to your account and play the anime you want to watch on your Samsung TV.
  • Then locate and tap the AirPlay or Chromecast icon in the playback menu.
  • Finally, select your Samsung TV from the list.

Wait until your phone connects to the TV, and then press Play to continue watching on the big screen.

How else can I watch Crunchyroll on Samsung TV?

If, for some reason, you didn’t manage to use the above methods, here’s what else you can do.

As I said above, Crunchyroll is also supported on such devices:

  • Android TV
  • Apple TV
  • Roku
  • Amazon Fire TV
  • PS4/5
  • Xbox

You can connect any of these devices (if you have one) to Samsung TV via HDMI, download the Crunchyroll app there and watch your favorite anime. What’s more, you can also connect your laptop via HDMI and just do the same.

Yes, there will probably be more wires and various inconveniences. But it works.

That’s actually it!
