I would definitely join Crunchyroll but they do not have US Dubbed. Sorry but I can not read and look at the show at the same time. I am not a multitasker and I cannot focus on two things visually between subtitles and the actual show

They have a few series dubbed and subbed. Rurouni Kenshin has both subs and dubs available, for example.

A few. I would rather have many. Why is it that other sites have it and not Crunchyroll?

First of all, a vast majority of the series on Crunchyroll have not been dubbed yet. They're streamed in Japanese because they haven't been licensed for English dubbing. They're coming straight from Japan; that's what "simulcasting" is.

Secondly, for the ones that ARE licensed for dubbing, the dubs belong to the dubbing companies. Funimation decides who can show the dubs of their shows because their writers and VA's provided the dubbed version. Viz doesn't want Crunchyroll to air its dubs because Viz owns Neon Alley, their own streaming service. If you want to see a Viz dub, you probably will need to go to Viz's service or the services that bought the airing rights from Viz (like Netflix).

FYI: Neon Alley just formed a partnership with Hulu.

The "giving away" in the title is misleading.

Giving away and selling are 2 entirely different things
