Not that great.

Comments about Crackle Movie Service:

Crackle Movie Service isn't that great. It's probably to weakest of all the streaming video services. Crackle doesn't have current movies or episodes of television shows. It is however completely free so it has that advantage when compared to similar services. It's nice for when you get a random urge to watch an older movie or television show but the other movie/television services have Crackle beat.

As I mentioned Crackle doesn't have current movies or television shows. A lot of the movies and television shows they do have are obscure unheard of ones. There are rarely any movies on there that I recognize. So their selection just isn't very good. Other services have much better selections.

I also have a problem with the video player quite frequently. It doesn't matter what browser I use, when a commercial comes on my player just freezes up. It's not every time but more frequently that I would like because I have to reload everything. I use a Macbook so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it or what.

I would only recommend Crackle if you like older movies and television shows or random obscure movies/tv shows.

Crackle Movie service

Comments about Crackle Movie Service:

Who doesn't love free? Free movies and shows sound pretty good, right? They are, unless you want to watch recent movies and shows, but then you'll have to shell out some bucks and pay for a streaming service. Crackle is pretty good at having a lot of movies to watch, and there are some shows, but most are quite old, Seinfeld being one of the most mentioned. The movies are older, and nothing that is recently run, but again they are all free. The movies run well, except for the occasional ad thrown in, but they have to have ads to keep things free. I'm not really interested in the shows, except for a few, and if you like Anime, this is the place for you. There are tons of animated shows on here, from. Japan, so if that's your pleasure, I highly recommend this site. There's not too much else to say, except that for a free movie site this is great. For those who can't afford a monthly streaming service, or just don't want to pay a fortune to go to the theater, I definitely give this a thumbs up.

A good idea but needs better execution

Comments about Crackle Movie Service:

This site has a great idea, showing movies and TV shows for free. The site is easy to navigate and making selections is as easy as clicking on an icon. And the picture and sound quality are good. However, the selection is disappointingly small. I only saw a couple TV shows I had even heard of, and when looking for comedy movies, there were only about 8 to choose from. I did find something good, which was the original Ghostbusters movie. Since this was free, I expected ads, but there were really too many, and their placement took away from the enjoyment of the movie by not being in between scenes, but actually interrupting scenes and even character conversations.

Decent for a free streaming service!

Comments about Crackle Movie Service:

I first found Crackle when I was trying to find somewhere online to watch full episodes of Seinfeld legally. To this day that is pretty much all that I use Crackle for, as the selection is pretty poor in my opinion. However, if you are a fan of anime Crackle is the website for you! There are countless anime series that I have never heard of available for instant viewing (well, that isn't saying much, I've never understood anime). I've used Crackle on my Macbook and also on my iPad. On the iPad I used Crackle as an app. I was pretty disappointed with the amount of bugs and how often it crashed. Also, when using Crackle on my Macbook, I have found that when it gets to one of the four commercial breaks during an episode, it crashes and the episode restarts. Sooo, Crackle is not my favorite option for watching really, anything online, but I won't completely down play it because their services are free and well, they have Seinfeld.

Love Crackle!

Comments about Crackle Movie Service:

I found crackle just by browsing endless search results about "tv shows to watch" on Google. Crackle being one of the results I clicked on. Beside the wide variety of shows that are on other well known production companies such as NBC/ABC/FX. Crackle also makes their own shows. Really great tv streaming site.
