Crackle is a free, ad-supported streaming service offering movies and television shows from across multiple genres. Established as a Grouper video streaming platform in 2004, Crackle later changed to become Crackle when owned by Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment, Inc. in 2007. Available globally across America, Canada, Australia and Latin America, Crackle features content curated from more than 80 movie and television studios as well as multiple genres such as action comedy series such as Prison Break.
Crackle originally offered user-generated content similar to YouTube; however, in 2010, they transitioned towards licensed material such as movies and television shows from major studios such as Columbia Pictures, TriStar Pictures, Screen Gems, etc. It now provides movies like Seinfeld, The Shield and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee as well as classic cinema classics to recent blockbusters for streaming via their library.
Crackle stands out as an unparalleled source of original content with its commitment to producing exclusive original series, such as crime drama The Oath, science fiction show StartUp, and comedy show Rob Riggle's Ski Master Academy; none are available anywhere else on online streaming service.
Crackle's reach extends well beyond its website and mobile apps; the service can also be found on several other platforms like Roku, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation, smart TVs and others. Although Crackle offers free services, its revenue comes from advertising that plays before and during content; typically shorter than traditional television commercials lasting 30 seconds or less.
Crackle has quickly become the go-to platform for viewers looking for free streaming options, and its library of licensed and original content keeps growing rapidly.
