    "Just by knowing that Sony owns Crackle it already gives it the credibility to be one of the apps to watch tv shows for free and LEGALLY. I found a list of the classic titles like FRIENDS and I was surprised to find out that they also offer original series by Crackle itself, pretty the same as the Netflix originals."

    "I binge watch How I Met Your Mother on Hulu and for me, that is a classic one. I know Hulu is not for everyone bcos not everyone is willing to spend for the monthly subscription but I am telling you it is worth the price. They also have classic movies in here."

    "iTunes have a lot of movies and shows on their roster. But I think they still lack some more shows. I was searching The Tom and Jerry Show (1975) but I could not find one. 😥"

    "Well, nothing special about this app as it works just like a regular television except that you can watch them on your iphone or android phone. Interestingly, they have a Classic TV channel included in their package, where all the classic tv shows can be watched."

    "For me, Netflix is the best streaming service for classic tv shows like FRIENDS, Vampire Diaries, and many more. The ultra HD plan is good for 5 devices. And of course, this is a legal source so expect a fee but I encourage everyone to veer away from piracy."
