i like this commercial ads in the movies. it feels like old tnt , tbs , upn 11 and channel 3 those channels. The reason i like hulu it has commercial during a show where it shock moment comes.

I havent made it through one movie yet with out it crapping out. The trouble with crackle is you have to watch beginning to end. You cant come back later and pick up where you left off, which really sucks when the blu ray player itself is continually buffering to keep up with the flick.

I have no stop problems, (as yet) with tv or movies, all play thru. Played several movies with NO commercial insert. Have found a number of titles, (I wanted to watch) that are not streaming on NF, (only via mail).

The comments to this entry are closed.

If they are only going to rotate 20 titles per month than they are a TNT TBS competitor, not NF.

Im watching on a Roku, if that matters as far as commercials go…

The Crackle movie channel on Roku absolutely sucks. It took me about 10 tries to load one movie, and it crapped out after the first commercial break. Crackle is not a viable competitor at this point.

I havent experienced the same commercial over and over again as I have never made in more than 15 minutes in to a movie before it freezes up. Hardly a threat to NF.

From the article: Titles are refreshed frequently featuring approximately 20 new titles per month

Im sure Crackle will be working out the bugs as they go.

With Sonys name attached to this service Netflix can start to sweat.

Im never going to watch content that has commercials on Roku.

Oh, boy! Old movies, complete with commercials, for your television set. Why am I not surprised that its Sony that came up with this exciting new concept? Perhaps the next step is for Sony to withdraw these from Netflix…

I heard the PS3 will get Bravia Internet Video which is Sonys apps that are on there TVs & Blu-Ray players. Which hopefully means a proper Crackle channel on the PS3.

Crackleannouncedthat the free ad-supported channel would would be available on the Roku Player, PS3, and Sony TVs & Blu-ray players. The selection consists of mostly older movies, but includes hits such as the Da Vinci Code, Ghostbusters, 21, Mr. Deeds, A Few Good Men, and Ultraviolet.

So I turned on my PS3 last night to watch some instant netflix, and the first thing I saw was the whats new screen, and there was black swan with a capcha under it that said, get it before netflix. I use the crap outta PSN game store but never touched PSN video store, and it just hit me, that even with the PS3 being the best, most comprehensive netflix streaming device with its own application inside the PS3s XMB menu (which is a RARE breed), netflix has gotta be choking the SHIT outta Sonys PSN Video store, and is actually a competitor! O.O In reality, I suppose the best way to fight low prices and better availability is FREE with income from adverts. Even if it doesnt draw from the netflix customer base, theres all the people out there that will refuse to pay for a service period, but will do anything for free. Such as the massive amounts of kids with a playstation and no job. (some because theyre too young, some because their lazy :/).

Commercials? What commercials? I aint seen no stinkin commercials. ;o)

Its great to see more options for streaming movies and TV shows, and itll be interesting to see how fast Crackle grows the selection of movies.

On my PS3 the SD quality video is VHS quality SD, no commercials just badly placed momentary blackness, and the video gave me a memory error once (after 5 minute pause while I was on the phone, too much buffering I guess). I was able to quickly jump to where it froze after restarting. Crackle is not a NF competitor, more like 1970s ABC 4:30 movie revival –

Crackle is pretty damn cool. Free content that has some premium titles. I dig it.

Crackle is a nice addition to the wonderful ever growing channel list of Roku. Really had no use for just their initial webisodes

Turns out you need to use the PS3 browser. The video quality is crap.

As for Crackle. Its awesome. I can find some movies and TV shows to watch. Its free. So cant complain much. Ads are alright. Would like more of a selection.

There wasnt single title on their list of 20 I want to watch so I wont even test it out on my PS3.

love the same commercial over and over and over and over and over and over

Yes…the same annoying commercial within tv ep or movie hopefully will change as they get more sponsers.

Just watched something on Crackle on the Roku yesterday – my biggest problem was that the commercials are apparently based on time instead of being placed between scenes. Noticed a lot of titles that Ive seen on Netflix, and not a lot extra that I care about. Still, its good to have a free option.

Been watching a movie for over an hour now and not one single commercial.

Posted by: vahillbillieMarch 30, 2011 at 08:31 PM

LOL at the people who wont watch anything thats not HD – you deserve to watch crap in HD.

watched 8mm and hads no problems watching the movie. even with seeing the same commercial multiple time.

I didnt even know Crackle was on the PS3?

I checked Crackle out on my Roku. Good stream. Watched two movies. Got interrupted every 10 minutes — with a the same Maggie Q commercial.

After further review – I did find 3 movies to watch on Crackle: So Close (one of my favorite HK cop flicks), White Line Fever (Jan Micheal Vincet as the philosophical forerunner to both Mad Max AND the A-Team), and Mothra 3 (which hasnt been released on DVD in the US).

what a bunch of whiners…This a free channel with a nice selection of movies..It works pretty well and have used it many times…HNF is just becoming a place to complain..okay i feel better continue complaining in 5,4,3,2,1………

I watched Cliffhanger the other day, expecting the breaks every 10 minutes or so, to my amazement it played through with no breaks…whats up? Also watched 3:10 to Yuma (old version) in the late afternoon, and it too went with no breaks. Went back later that night and it had breaks every 10 minutes or so, whats the deal?

I would like to see Crackle add a title search, as going thru the 300+ movie section is a bit time consuming. Their website has full service, so maybe they will add to Roku channel.

Seeing the same commercial two or even three times is tolerable. Seeing the same commercial about 24 times during two movies is too much.
