Stream free movies and TV shows with Crackle app

Sony has launched a new app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch which allows users to watch ad-supported full length movies and TV shows for free.

Crackle is free to download from the App Store and provides access to high quality video streaming of unedited Hollywood movies and television series.

There are more than 100 titles to watch from the library of Columbia Pictures, TriStar Pictures, Screen Gems and Sony Pictures Classics.   

Movies titles include Bad Boys, Starman, Jagged Edge, La Bamba, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Groundhog Day, The Blue Lagoon and Wild Things.

TV shows that can be streamed free include Breaking Bad, Mad About You, News Radio, TJ Hooker, The Three Stooges and Who’s The Boss.

New TV shows and movies are being added regularly. In other regions TV shows like Seinfeld and films like the Da Vince Code are available now so we hope they will make it to Australian Crackle viewers soon.

Viewers also have access to original content which can only be viewed through Crackle.

Video can be watched full screen in your device and it’s easy to move back and forth during the program in case you’re picking up where you left off viewing earlier.

And if you enjoy what you’re watching and want to tell your friends about it you can also share it on Facebook, Twitter and via email.

Watch free movies and TV shows on the Crackle app

While the whole idea is to support the free service with ads the only things we could see were promos for recent cinema-release Sony films.

In other regions an ad usually runs before the video starts with ads interspersed throughout but we haven’t seen any ads during programs yet. Perhaps the Australia service is still being prepared for Australian ads.

Either way the Crackle app is a great way to kick back and watch something on demand.

While it’s not the absolute latest content but there is still plenty here to enjoy.

And getting it for free is pretty good value even if you have to watch an ad or two.

Crackle can be downloaded now from App Store for free.
