Crackle Launches Ad-supported Full-Length Hollywood Flicks on PS3, Roku and More
 
 

You may have heard of Crackle before, it is a website owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment. Crackle is a multi-platform service that offers free flicks that are ad-supported to viewers. The service has been expanded significantly today and the new devices you can stream it from will make it much more popular and add greatly to its reach.

As of now the service can be streamed via PS3 consoles, Roku players, and Sony Blu-ray players. The content will also stream via Sony Bravia TVs with Google TV integrated. The expansion makes Crackle the only digital network to offer free to viewer full-length unedited movies and TV shows on those platforms.

"Crackle is the best single source of ad-supported Hollywood films and television series on the internet," said Berger. "By making our extensive collection of content available on these platforms, we're bringing an unparalleled viewing experience directly to consumers through their internet-enabled devices."

The ad-supported movies include those in multiple genres like action, comedy, crime, horror, thriller, and sci-fi. The programming is already offered online and on mobile phones. Crackle says that on average viewers spend 50 minutes per visit on connected TVs. The films that the network shows are good ones too with things like Ghostbusters, 21, Bad Boys, and lots more. The titles are refreshed frequently as well with about 20 new flicks per month from Columbia Pictures, TriStar pictures, Screen Gems, and Sony Pictures Classics.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
