What is Crackle?

This might be a good option for those bored of Netflix.

By James Nunns

Crackle is a free to use multi-platform video entertainment network.

Distributing original web shows, Hollywood movies, and TV shows, Crackle was founded in the early 2000’s as Grouper and later rebranded in 2007 as Crackle after it was acquired by Sony for $65m.

The service is free with commercials and is supported on all platforms.

A number of content partners work with Crackle such as Fox Digital, Lions Gate Entertainment, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Red Bull, Universal Studios, Miramax, The Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, and more.

Where can you watch Crackle?

The service is available to access through various devices, such as mobile phones and games consoles, in addition to set top boxes, connected TVs and online.

One of the features of Crackle is that users are able to create a Watch Later list. This means that the user can save a list of videos that they enjoyed or want to watch at a later time.

Crackle is available in 21 countries and three languages: English, Spanish and Portuguese.
