Censored on Xbox video?



  • I just bought the second season of this on the Xbox video store, and I have a question. Why is it censored? I bought it assuming it was not going to be and honestly wouldn't have picked it up had I known it was going to be. I find it quite annoying to see massive light shows that detract from what is going on in the video, or on occasions such high darkness levels that you can't make out a single thing in the fight scene.

    Is this a setting issue I have to turn on and off and will it be fixed at some point so I can enjoy the show without the editing?



  • I wish I could give you an answer. I'm equally shocked, and yet not surprised. I know when it comes to streaming, it's sort of a crap-shoot. So many places censor, and edit, that I just don't stream anything these days. I was, myself, curious about the XBox video services, but if this is what you're getting, then I know to write it off as well.



  • That's shitty. The funimation app is coming to xbox one soon, and it's already on the 360 and ps3. so if you're a subscriber, just watch it on the app, otherwise, check and see if there were two different versions of the show, one being sensored and one not. Also, maybe check your privacy/parental settings for your xbox account. While I watched it on my pc on this website, there were only maybe, 1 or two scenes out of the whole first season that where bright and blocked the boobage : ( but otherwise I didn't have any problems. This is why I like buying a hard copy of anything when making purchases. I subscribe to preview, find good shows, then mark the ones I wanna buy. it's the way to go.



  • Did you buy the limited edition or the standard? There isn't a detailed enough description to find the difference between the two versions, but I assume the standard edition is TV editing where the limited is the unedited version. Because Freezing is censored, or was censored when I watched it, on Netflix which is the disc ( blue ray or dvd) streaming. This could be because of the flashbacks, idk how in depth the originals were, but one can get in trouble where she is remembering what happened as a child. That is stil considered child pornography even if animated, in some states.. If not all… I have forgotten the specifics... Just what I remember from a Law and Order inspired FCC debate in college.

    Seems plausible one version was rushed into production censored and the limited was reworked to be legal worldwide while minimally censored.

    no, both are uncensored. the real difference between the two is that the limited edition comes in an chipboard artbox and the standard doesn't



  • So it's just the Xbox Video version that's censored? That is weird…



  • It's because that version was available as part of the original simulcast release, long before the uncensored materials were available. That version is also subtitled-only, if I recall correctly.



  • Aha so my earlier assumption that they pushed a version out asap was correct, but it just so happens that it was a digital version not the disc sets. Thank you. :)



  • So if I were to buy Season 2 on blu-ray, it WOULD be the uncensored version correct?

    Yes, that is correct.
