What Is Crackle?

Crackle is a website where you can watch free TV shows and full-length movies. It is owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

How Does Crackle Work?

Just register with the site (free), pick a show or movie that you want to watch and hit play. It's that easy. If you have a Roku, Playstation, Xbox, Apple TV, Android TV or a similar device, you can also stream videos to your TV. And if you want to watch shows on the go, there's a ​free app that you can download to your cell phone.

Wondering how all of this can be free? It's simple. Instead of charging a membership fee, Crackle just runs the occasional commercial. It keeps the site going, and it keeps you from having to pay for the service.

Crackle works across a wide-range of devices. To see if your tablet, cell phone, gaming system, TV or streaming system is supported, go here.

You'll also find original series that you can't watch anywhere else.
