Sony Expands Crackle with Ad-Supported Movies and Television

According to Eric Berger of Sony Pictures Television, viewers spend about 50 minutes per visit to Crackle on connected TVs. Crackle can be found in the Channel Store on Roku, on the PlayStation 3 Internet Browser home screen and on all BRAVIA Internet Video devices. Crackle is partnered with Google TV and can be accessed via the Spotlight section.

Sony Pictures Entertainment is keeping with the trend of movie-on-demand by bringing expansion to Crackle, a multi-platform video entertainment network. The expansion includes ad-supported full-length movies and television series to all users of different players, consoles and Wi-Fi.

With these expansions, Crackle becomes the only digital network to feature free-to-consumer full-length, unedited movies and television series on multiple platforms. The service provides users with hundreds of Hollywood movies in all kinds of genres. The platform also includes thousands of TV episodes and Crackle original programming. All of which can be accessed online, via mobile, and now, on a broad selection of connected devices.

I remember when Crackle first appeared on the Internet with original content called webisodes. I took my daily dose of belly laughs watching “The Roadents“. The road trip comedy is about two guinea pigs, Pee Pee and Buttercup, travelling the high roads in a Winnebago. The family comedy is still featured daily at Crackle.

A sampling of Crackle’s current and upcoming movies includes:

“The Da Vinci Code”
“21”
“Ghostbusters”
“Bad Boys”
“Big Daddy”
“Gridiron Gang”
“We Own the Night”
“Eight Millimeter”
“Ultraviolet”
“A Few Good Men”
“The Patriot”
“Mr. Deeds”

My first pick is “Ghostbusters” and my second pick is “A Few Good Men”. I haven’t seen either movie in a long time, and it would be fun to watch them again.
