The movie menu on Crackle is a whirlwind of movies and TV shows with top-name actors. You’ll find titles starring Harrison Ford, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and others. Some are new, while others are available only for a month or two. In case you’re a TV series fan, Crackle is a great place to find your next binge-worthy flick. Crackle features the original live-action Tick series, as well as the ’90s cartoon The Critic. You’ll also find Ellen Degener’s popular show.
Like Netflix, Crackle lets you stream original and acquired content across multiple platforms. It offers a search bar that allows you to filter results by genre, age rating, IMDb rating, or recent viewing history. Users can also choose to follow the same content they previously watched or mark for later watching. Crackle has a very user-friendly interface that makes it easy to navigate. The home screen starts with featured content, with buttons to move to Movies, Shows, or a personal Watchlist. The content is laid out in a tiled thumbnail view, but can be switched to basic list view if necessary.
Although you can watch Crackle videos without creating an account, there are some downsides to using the service. Ads are prominently featured. You might have to deal with numerous ads while watching the videos, and you’ll also have to deal with a lack of DVR storage. You also can’t watch any content offline. You need a stable internet connection to use Crackle. Crackle is available on most modern devices, including computers, smart televisions, and phones.
