    "Are you tired of Netflix which keeps raising their prices constantly? Then Crackle would be a good alternative to it. Crackle offers free movies and TV shows that are updated monthly. You can make an account and save to favorite and watch where you left off. The little downside is the commercials that keep playing more often than necessary. I would recommend Crackle if you want to watch good movies and TV shows for free. I switched from Netflix to Crackle more then a year ago and I have not been disappointed so far."

    "This would be a good app to watch TV after the fact, but not for live TV. I don't know how long it would take for a show to appear on this app, but if it showed up quickly, it could be a good substitute for live TV. However, it still isn't live. So, if that's what you are absolutely looking for, then this would not be the app for you. If you were willing to wait a day or two, this might work. If you just want a resource of older TV and movies, this could be great. Still, not a solution as written."

    "Ugh. I want to like Crackle, but there's just so few things on it I actually want to watch. It claims to have hit TV series - what hits? It claims to have hit movies, but it doesn't even sort of have the selection of apps like Hulu or Netflix. Library is everything, and Crackle just doesn't bring it. You'll wade through a sea of crummy, forgettable, low-budget garbage looking for a halfway decent movie that's probably on Netflix anyway. Just give this one a pass."

    "Crackle has been a great on-the-go app so far. The variety of content is great and it really does get updated quite frequently. I particularly like that I can go from one device to another without much hassle to finish a show. A downside is that it seems to be strictly for iOS devices, and that limits me sometimes about when I can watch, depending on my location."

    "There is a lot more content on Crackle these days, along with some original (Supermansion!) productions as well. As a streaming service, it's pretty good, but the ads are plenty and annoying, and you will beg Crackle for an ad-free payable tier after the first 20 minutes of Police Acadamy. 5 stars for the content, minus several million for the ads."

    "Well, this is certainly a better website than YouTube. Crackle has a huge collection of movies and tv series that you can watch. It is free so it is surprising to see that these guys have a lot of content in their cache. My only complaint is that it contains ads. But that could be expected, right? So this is a great alternative."

The movies are clear and the choices are plentiful. I started using this service in 2013 have not been disappointed. They carry all my favorites, so its a win to me."

Yeah, ad after ad after ad. Also the selection is Sony only so if they didn't make it, like anything bollywood, you're out of luck."

Finding shows are easy to do and searching through different genres are also easy. The images are all big and easy to identify."
