    I really wished this actually worked. If a movie actually begins, it freezes within a couple seconds. Works on my Roku TV just fine but on my tablet, laptop or phone, it's a no-go.... my internet is plenty strong enough. Hoping it can be tweaked pretty soon. If not, I'll be uninstalling in the next couple of days.... matter of fact, just read quit a few other reviews & will just go ahead & uninstall. Seems to be an ongoing issue for a long while. Bye-- Crackle! Gonna go watch Tubi, uninterrupted

    Crackle has some "good" movies but when I search for my favorite movies it comes back as .... Your search has failed, please try again I tried to search for a movie I wanted to watch and all I do get are a bunch of clips from the movie but not the full movie. This app stinks for the most part. Don't bother downloading / installing, it is not worth the aggravation.

  3. Paul Sandberg-avatar

    The question is, what are you willing to tolerate in exchange for a free movie? Because this app sucks. It hangs up, it glitches, it skips around. Sometimes after you hit pause, when you hit play again, it jumps back to the ads that ran five minutes earlier and makes you watch them again---at which point you have to fast forward to find your place. Again, if getting a free movie is worth the aggravation, then go for it.

  4. Trey Gonzalez-avatar

    Dont bother downloading. There are fantastic movie choices, but the movies constantly stall, or suddenly jump over to their garbage Original Content. Other times the movie refused to start and crash the app whole streaming. But you better believe no matter how bad the play quality is for the movie, the 5 minutes of unskipable ads that play every 12 minutes of your MOVIE will always play without fail. Sometimes it will glitch and just keep playing as instead of going back to the movie. 0/10.

    Trying to cast a movie to my Chromecast was a nightmare. Kept saying there were playback errors, it would crash, and even go back to playing a previous movie I had (unsuccessfully) tried to watch. Of course, every time I re-tried, I had to watch several ads over and over again. This app is a hot pile of garbage.

  6. Jared-avatar

    Seemed to be okay at first my first time watching a movie, that is until I experienced the ads. I'm not opposed to some ads by any means, it is free after all. The problem is they run choppy, sometimes out of sync with voice. The time doesn't match up. It will go back to the movie for 3 seconds, then go back to the ads all over again as if I hadn't watched the ads at that interval yet. After what was supposed to be like 1 minute of ads to continue watching, I was really at 3 or 4 minutes.

  7. Alfred Valle-avatar

    A very nice app in the free streaming service category. It has a very good selection for my age demographic. I am, however, only giving 4 stars because it lacks one feature for use on my device: there is no way to clear the "Continue Watching" feature. Sometimes you may begin a movie or show that you don't want to continue (because you've changed your mind once it began). How do you clear that feature? Please fix this and I'll gladly add the final star.

  8. Zeus & Athena-avatar

    I love the variety of movies & shows. They have regular, but not too many commercials. But this site does need work. When watching a tv show you cant easily get to the next episode. When opening the app at another time it will start the series over from the beginning instead of the next episode. It doesn't really let you make a list of shows & then get to that list. I am looking forward to improvements & an update.

  9. Jeremy Stubbs-avatar

    Interface is fine for a free streaming app. 8 commercials per movie is tolerable considering how, again, it's free. That being said, is it really too much to ask that I'm able to enjoy what I'm streaming? The ads conveniently play perfectly every time. The movie/TV part however, not so much. My screen kept freezing as audio continues to play and then turns green. This happened several times within the first 20 minutes of just one movie. I'm sorry, but that makes it unbearable to watch.

  10. Keith Remelts-avatar

    Woof. All I can say is... This is bad. They've got a great selection of titles that are unique and would be wonderful to watch... If the UI wasn't so, incredibly and painstakingly BAD. Want to stream from your phone to smart TV? Good luck. Did you get distracted from your show to read this review? Well you're not even able to rewind. It's THAT bad. I'm not sure if this is supposed to resemble a Netflix competitor or a cable company from 1997 before we had the luxury of a DVR. What a shame.

  11. Juan Marcia-avatar

    I give it 3 stars due to the fact that there are times that after a commercial break, the film doesn't resume exactly where it stops. Also when it asks if I wish to resume film, it will either start from the beginning or begin from a different scene. One other thing, sometimes once a commercial break ends another will start instead of the film resuming.

  12. Silverton MY-avatar

    I almost wonder if they abandoned this app. I can't even tell you what doesn't work on the app because there are so many flaws and it changes with each movie you watch. Sometimes it looks like its paused but when you hit play you find out it was only buffering. Sometimes it jumps ahead or back an hour right in the middle of a movie. Sometimes it jumps to another movie in the middle of the one you are watching. Sometimes when you go back to a movie it asks if you want to resume or play from beginning.. When you hit either choice, there's a good chance it will resume a different movie. Also, when you pick a movie from the guide, why does it just start playing the movie? Most apps bring you to a page where you can read what the movie is about first. Honestly, I can't believe this made it to the app store. It almost functions like an app in the beginning stages of a BETA version.

  13. BronzeMedalGaming1025-avatar



    I like this streaming service (mostly because of Spectacular Spider-man) but it takes forever for the ads to load, it takes about 10 minutes to load an ad, and then the ad break is another minute, it's very difficult to finish an episode of a show or movie because 50 percent of my time is had sitting and watching a orange circle spin around

  14. Maranello Santiago-avatar

    When i pause a movie, it takes it right back to the beginning. A commercial will also play, then freeze, then play a different commercial. It will then play a different commercial, just to freeze again and play the same commercial(the one that doesnt freeze) over and over, not getting back to the movie. Ive never seen this app act this horrible.

  15. KalaiLyliani-avatar

    Useless! It doesn't cast from my phone correctly - it always plays the wrong movie and when I try to change it, the app just shuts down. Trying to cast from chrome,but keep getting video playback error code 2004 - there's no information online about how to fix this. Will play in microsoft browsers, but no way to cast to TV. Free, but costs your patience and sanity. No thanks!

  16. Bill Connelly-avatar

    Should call it "Verizon commercial on loop". I mean, I was expecting commercials. Something has to pay for the content, much of which is pretty good. Lotta great old movies to watch. But seeing the same stupid Verizon FIOS commercial over and over and over again, sometimes twice in a row in the same commercial break, gets old quick. You just wish they'd mix it up a bit. It might be counter-productive for the advertiser. That monotonous repetition has only given me a sublime hatred of Verizon now

  17. Siksic6-avatar

    Im starting to wonder if sony just hates Samsung or android in general. Crackle runs great on my ipad and my smart tv (Vizio) but has never ran correctly on my phone. I have been a user for 3 years now but everytime i download the app on my phone i find it a mess of glitches. Ads that crash the app, or the movie starting back from the beginning after an ad break and now the aspect ratio is off. Sad too because i like to watch movies on my phone when im away from home. Good original content tho.

  18. Luciano Guerra-avatar

    It works but if cricket has said your data will slow down this app will slow down. Of course not all apps slow down but the way the app handles the download of information will slow down. Other apps have or use a buffer so information or data is being download as you are watching the movies or shows. So you never really notice the slow down because it's always ahead of you so you won't notice it slowing down. I know very funny but I'm sure it's true, I think.

  19. Haylei Neal-avatar

    It paused so many times and if i minimized the screen then it would just stop playing so i had to go out of the show/movie and start it all over again. It also would only show the timing thing at the bottom for a few seconds so i didnt have time to be able to drag the dot to anther place. Terrible, would not reccomend if your getting this on a computer.

    It's excellent application you can see all the shows and some great movies that you like. The most that I like is they have movie's from 70 and 80 gives bring me good memories back them. I wish those days were back.

    Crashes every time you try and use Chromecast, don't waste your time unless you're watching it right on your phone. Even their website playback crashes if I try to use closed captioning. Seems like it has decent access to films, but it's so buggy it feels like the side project of some college freshman programmers instead of a company owned by Sony with a valuation of tens of billions of dollars.

  22. Joanna Hahner-avatar

    Has a decent enough selection of movies but the ads and playback are terrible. Instead of the sporadic ad breaks most free movie apps contain, Crackle plays ads everytime you pause and then play the movie. If you want to skip to a certain part, it won't let you; rather, it jumps to a particular spot every time. Check out Tubi tv; it's much, much better.

  23. Bill Blackmon-avatar

    7 adds, 5 minutes of a movie. I lie not! Here's what Crakles about Crackle - 6 or 7 adds for every 8-10 minutes of the presentation. The app freezes and there's tiling. Stick with VUDU or Tubi. Every few months I'll use this app for a day to see if improvements have been made. 1 for the free movies offered and another out of pity. 2 out of 5.

  24. G Pother Illowhite-avatar

    Stalls constantly. Ads are incessant even for a free streaming service. Frustrating & time-consuming. I'm sorry, but I expected more from Sony, especially when these issues were present when I tried Crackle out several yrs ago.

  25. Joshua Nunya-avatar

    I tried it again today and it still doesnt work. I looked at 1 and 2 star reviews to see how long it has been going on Once I reached 2016 after MANY complaints which were pretty much the same I noticed something. Usually if you look at ratings about an app and it is bad the developers acknowledge it and reply back..... I SAW NO REPLIES FROM THE DEVELOPERS TO ANY COMPLAINTS. This app (besides constantly freezing) if you cast/ mirror the show and you do something else so you have to leave for a f

    ZERO STARS. I tried watching movies on CRACKEL but VOLUME LEVEL WAS SO LOW~ ~>Icouldnt even HEAR THE MOVIE enough to tell what was going on. Maddening!. I used the closed captioning because I am severely hearing-impaired CLOSED CAPTIONING. It's not enough I can hear well enough to watch movies other apps! If that wasn't enough when the ads came on it blasted me out of my seat and I had to move my phone over 2 feet away from ME it was SO DARN LOUD! If you're handicapped, I highly advise against

  27. Ray bird-avatar

    This app is garbage don't waste your time a few years ago it was pretty good but now there's literally a commercial every 3 minutes if that this app is nothing but watching commercials and the movies and TV shows on it are old garbage and if you do have anything new or current it's only one episode or a trailer and it's full of commercials and they will hit you every 5 seconds for trying to sell you stuff don't waste your time on this app

  28. Liz McWhirk-avatar

    This is good in theory but keeps forcing itself closed. I also like watching old sitcoms like "Who's the Boss?" Or "I dream of Jeannie" or "Bewitched", "The Nanny" but they only have so many seasons for each one. It is actually harder to watch episodes of classic sitcoms. Thanks.

  29. Ham Eggs-avatar

    Got this app for my android smart tv and it doesn't work right. Severely delayed junk. Total lag fest. So decided to try it on the tablet, still too laggy. Tried the cell phone and too delayed and laggy again. Uninstalling. Poor performance app made by people with laggy brains for other laggy brain people. Can't watch nothing because I can't stand the menus poor performance, let alone attempt to start a movie. The menu alone needs to be bombed to death. Serieslover2019 /or tubi is a better app.

  30. Lev Annah-avatar

    This app doesnt cast properly. I have installed it on 2 devices and it does the same thing. I have to try to cast several times to finally watch a movie or tv show. Could you please fix this app?

  31. Joe McDonald-avatar

    LOTS of repeated commercials. Attempted to rent online, but this was the only place available. Ads happened so frequently, it really broke immersion on the movie. Wish I could have paid and skipped this whole BS. At least the movie was available online... here... I guess, so 2 stars?

  32. Mia Awadallah-avatar

    It let's u watch tv but I have this app on both my tablet and phone.on my phone it works but on my tablet it just shows up as black ,that or it'll start to work and then doesn't. Also when I was watching a show with my little sister I had to skip a scene and when I tried to skip it a ad came up,and when the ad was over it went straight back to the same part.

  33. Google User-avatar

    Won't cast. App is a mess. Says "there was a problem with video playback." This app used to work so good and was well designed. Now it doesn't work and finding movies and shows is a joke.

  34. Jonathan Clark-avatar

    Some weird playback issues. When I try to submit an email to the support email listed on the play store I get a bounced email saying that it is undeliverable. I guess the developers don't want to hear negative feedback! Same with the email from the app itself!

  35. SgtKOnyx-avatar

    Player is a broken mess, almost hilariously bad if it were not for how frustrating it is. Here are the things not to do while watching, if you want the movie to play: Go to another app Pause Let ads play (literally just had 3 back to back ad breaks... not single ads, multiple ads per break)

  36. Ashley Lewallen-avatar

    Ashley Lewallen


    This app sucks. I was able to watch 1 movie a few nights ago, but I've tried at least 10 times tonight, to get through 1! The movie keeps stopping and won't come back on. When it does, I have to start all over and find where I left off and then I get to watch about 5 minutes and it stops again.

  37. Samantha Palacios-avatar

    Samantha Palacios


    Too many commercials, commercials are also extremely loud compared to the actual show and when paused the app just starts playing on it's own after a few minutes so that is extremely annoying as well. All in all this app is garbage!

  38. bryson ballard-avatar

    I received an email from Google saying my account was compromised through crackle and I go to sign in and it won't let me so I try to reset my password and it says there's no account associated with my Gmail so I was hacked because my new tv can't connect to my account but my old tv still works just fine on it I pay to use this and get hacked wouldn't recommend at all

  39. Kat Net-avatar

    I love Crackle! Works great on my phone, tablet, and computer! I love many of the 70's shows and sitcoms and Crackle has many of them! Many of the movies are B-movies, but there are a lot of more popular movies, too! If you don't mind ads, then Crackle is a great free tv service!

  40. Michael Petersante-avatar

    Michael Petersante


    First few minutes of the show where good with about a minute of commercials. About 1/3 of the way into the movie the ads became pervasive, 1 minute of the movie, then the ads kept recycling over and over. After 7 minutes of the ads I stopped the movie. Free but not usable.

  41. Thomas Warmack-avatar

    So far this app is almost better for movies as Pluto TV is, but, this app does not glitch out like pluto tv does now, this app does not glitch out like everyone else has said in the reviews. Try it and be suprised, you will like it

  42. P.Jill Mendoza-avatar

    Not worth downloading. Terrible streaming service. Movies kept pausing to buffer even though no other devices were on the same wi-fi. Tried running it with cellular service only with no change. On the plus side, any ads streamed without interruption or drop in picture quality.

  43. Heather Keller-avatar

    I cannot get around having to reactive each of my 2 tvs, and now it times out when trying to log in or reset password. I just bought a new tv with this loaded. If it doesn't get fixed I'm going to Vizio and LG to let them know your program is not working at all.

  44. Ryan Rouse-avatar

    Doesn't remember where I paused, resumes at the last place an ad was played, and usually replays the ads. The ads are ridiculously repetitive, you'll literally be watching the same ads for hours. Browsing is basically non existent. But free is free

  45. Bryan Bassett-avatar

    glitchy ads, so I ended up watching ads for like 30 minutes in one movie. Streaming is very slow and buffers constantly. I honestly feel bad rating this app so low, because I like the idea of it, but it really needs some work.

  46. Kristina koltyk-avatar

    Kristina koltyk


    Would like to give 5 stars but WAY 2 many ads. I know it's free because of ads but tubi and other sites show nowhere near as many. Then there is no very many movies and then it seems everytime I save a movie to the watch later I go back on a day or 2 later and the movie is almost always "expired"

  47. Jason McBroom-avatar

    Great content and ad based free is awesome! BUT - The resolution is too high!! It's constantly freezing! This is the only video app that does it. Give options to lower the resolution on the streaming box app, please!

  48. Elaine Valdes-avatar

    I only got to see 10 seconds of an ad before the app decided to crashed. Every time I would reopen it and select play on a movie, it would continue to crash.

  49. Snow White-avatar

    Ads keep causing the video to freeze or stop and the screen goes blank. This is a new issue. It worked well a week ago.

  50. Sicky-avatar

    It just doesn't work. I try to use the app and it buffers forever. I tried to use the website and putting it in fullscreen crops out the bottom 4th of the movie. I tried to watch it on my PS4 and the pause/play button stops working randomly. I guess the reason this service is free is because they put no money into making sure it functions.

  51. Kyle Chrzan-avatar

    This app does not work with android at all. When you go to watch a movie or program it starts but then gets stuck with the beginning frame if you get a picture at all. The visual content freezes as the audio continues to play. I even tried reinstalling the app 2 times. Although the ads work perfectly well. It was very disappointing. Don't recommend.

  52. Mary C-avatar

    I initially downloaded the app to watch my favorite comedy, Austen land. Which, in the past couple of days, they have removed. :( Still, right off the bat I had problems with the app itself. The main problem being that whenever I paused what I was watching, it would always, and I mean always skip back at least 2 minutes. This meant if I were to pause something after a commercial break, I'd have to watch through all the commercials all over again.

  53. Alan Smithee-avatar

    Soo many ads, its about 3 mins worth of ads, for every 9 mins of TV. Completely unwatchable, yes i understand its free, but I'd still consider it a waste of time. Uninstalled.

  54. Jaden Jones-avatar

    This is a one in a half star app it always freezing, and it has too many ads. This is not what i call binge watching. Would not advise you to get it. 👎🏽

  55. VICTOR NKWONTA-avatar

    I give this a 3 stars because every time I pause it goes backwards 2-3 minutes and after every ad is another ad. Then when the ad finishes it goes to something different. That's why I give it 3 stars

  56. Jay Kay-avatar

    Just like other Sony products, looks a lot better than it performs. When casting from phone to TV it freezes on commercials. Does not work well with Fire TV or Chromecast.

  57. Michael Lund-avatar

    There is a lot of watchable content here but the glitches are bad and numerous. Content is often interrupted because of glitchy buffering and bad sync between content and ads. Most effective remedy appears to restart the device.

  58. Bruce King-avatar

    Nearly impossible to watch a movie. Long load screens, laggy and soo many commercials it will take you 3 hours to watch a 2 hour movie. I'd rather just rent it from another site.

  59. Shaun Morales-avatar

    I wish I could give zero stars. Terrible buffeeing problems. Was watching Roseanne and had pixel congestion on the show, but supereclear commercials. 6 or 7 minutes in, and I've seen barely the opening credits, tons of buffering, commercials, 30 seconds of the actual show, more commercials and then a restart of the opening credits. Go with Tubi, it runs way better and less intrusive. Crackle is just wack! Stay away!

  60. Robert Costa-avatar

    Have this on Chromecast built in on my LG Tv and it is horrible. It has NO PROBLEMS playing ads but it can't re-start the show I was watching without me getting an "ERROR" mesage and having to click "RETRY" a dozen or two times and that is not even a guarantee fir it to come back on. I finally give up. The shows I like I'll either go without or get to see elsewhere at some point.

  61. A Google user-avatar

    The quality looks great....when it's not FROZEN UP!! I love the old tv shows that they have like 227, Archie Bunker's Place etc. What I HATE is that it's frozen up 75% of the time! I leave feedback but they don't ever fix them problem!! I don't understand why they can't fix it. I would love it and give 5 stars if they would fix the problems!!

  62. Robert Jones-avatar

    Buffers & Freezes, all the time, even during commercials that run for 5mins. then starts over & over, never getting back to the movie...I would love to see the "Sony" movie "Get Low", however I am going to have to look to another app... Poor product.

  63. J Dansby-avatar

    Apparently this was designed for iPhone or IOS devices. Plays fine on those. If you have an Android, for the love of God save your sanity. I think it's straight up given me Tourrette's.

  64. Markus Unterberg-avatar

    Markus Unterberg


    Loads commercials then after they play loads more commercials then after they play loads more commercials then after they play loads more commercials. Then maybe they stop and the app crashes. Most worthless frustrating pos app ever. Frook you.

  65. Cameron Bryant-avatar

    I guess it's been abandoned - This app does not function correctly with the S20 Ultra. They haven't updated it since last year. UNINSTALLED

  66. Demetress Olds-avatar

    I wish I could rate lower, because app does not work properly. Movies stopping, pausing and some movies don't start at all! Where is the Help or Service center buttons at?? Smh...

  67. Clyde Parker-avatar

    Nice movies and TV shows, however, they seem to be pixalated quit a bit. Not my phone, a new LG thinQ with HD resalution. I also have other apps that stream movies and TV, none of them have any problems. I can only assume yours are low quality streaming shows. I will try watching your app again tomorrow, if it is still low quality pixalated content I will delete the app. I am truley trying to give your app a fair chance. Thanks

  68. Damita Evans-avatar

    I can barely hear the shows when volume is on full blast. But the commercials are ridiculously loud. Why the volume difference? I won't be watching crackle anymore because of it.

  69. Scott Hattis-avatar

    Really poor picture quality at times. Pixelates really bad. Really slow to load, and i have to rewatch ads because i wanted to skip a few seconds before an ad break started to rewatch a good part.

  70. Sarah G-avatar

    You guys need some new programmers on this app. It constantly gets stuck in a loop of commercials and 5 seconds before the commercials. Sometimes it wont even load the advertisements and crashes. SONY, you are a large respected brand and should be embarrased to have your name on such a subpar product.

  71. Ariana Fabella-avatar

    The selection is pretty cool, but the app keeps on crashing and rarely connects to the chromecast. Would use it a lot more if you could actually play the movies. This app keeps on getting worse. Disappointing.

  72. Veronica V-avatar

    Downloaded long enough to watch one movie. Made my Fire stick lock up & after watching one movie, I switched to another app to watch a different show. While the new app was playing, the sound was suddenly overtaken by the next show that was in the queue for the Crackle. During the movie I did watch, the breaks for commercials were timed horribly. I get it... Free apps need to make money somewhere! There was no care to their placement and the redundancy of the same one over and over was painful.

  73. Jamie Lynn-avatar

    Not worth the commercials. It has a nice selection of content but it's really not worth trying to get thru one for the amount of commercials. Plus the fact that if you pause it takes you all the way back to the last commercial, if you leave the content & come back it takes you to the beginning. It took me 1 hour just to get thru a quarter of a movie. It's ashame because it could be a good app...just not worth the commercials.

    WAYYYY TOO MANY ADS and they pop-up at inopportune times. I get that it's free and the selection is pretty good, but 6 consecutive ads (many of which are the same ones over and over) is just too many to make it worth watching on a consistent basis. How about 3 ads max and finding better places to insert them as to not interrupt the flow of the movie?

    Not worth it even with it being free!! Every time I tried watching anything on this app it would eventually keep going back to the commercials so you could never get even halfway through a movie. I get that it's free- but there are a lot of free apps that advertise and still let you get through the movie. This app is garbage!!

    Not thrilled, free movie so I can live with the commercials. Unfortunately the commercials have no issue streaming but I have connection issues when the movie is suppose to come on. My internet is 1000/1000 with FiOS and my router is an arms length away from my Xbox which I stream on. I have no issues with gaming, Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ etc... I'm not sure what the problem is here but I'm not thrilled.

    Started off good at first. But fell apart afterwards. If you try to pause, get ready to rewatch the commercials EVERY TIME. After a while, I can't change to horizontal mode after exiting and coming back. Tried restarting but nothing. Tried reinstalling, nothing. Don't know how this was approved to be on the app store with glitches like these.

    Ads getting stuck buffering are pretty bad. Makes this app difficult to like. The last set of ads buffered for 12 minutes. Don't have that kind of time for that.

    Horrible app. many movies pixelate so badly you can barely watch the movie on Samsung TV devices and certain movies will not play on certain devices. You try to email support and it comes back as undeliverable.

    VERY UNSATISFIED!! If I could rate it zero stars, I would. I installed the app, found a movie I wanted to watch, tried to play it 3 different times to no avail. Picked another movie, tried it too, nada, and all while being able to easily watch the ads mind you. I mean go figure. Use to have this app years ago and never had an issue, but now I do? Gonna uninstall it.

    Come on Sony. You know you guys can do better. When Crackle first came out it was great. Some movies and features were added over the years and made it even better til now where you guys actually have some older and newer movies people want to see but your app controls and features are just not on the mark. What happened to the name Sony? Please explain to me why would you brand such a thing as this and not even fully support it? Any answers for this cause I keep having simple glitches

    POS app freezes continuously while watching movies. It'll play all the ads just fine, but you can't watch the show. Junk x 1000%. No Dolby Digital sound and a low quality picture add to it's lackluster performance. The really sad part...I'm trying to play it on a Sony TV.

  83. MK Ultra-avatar

    Although I like the movies and shows there are way to many commercials. If you are going to place 5 to 7 commercials every few mins in the show that is excessive not to mention duplicate commercials running back to back. Hopefully this will change in the future and then I can use your service again but for now it's just not enjoyable and at times annoying.

  84. Ryan McGinley-avatar

    Constantly crashes and replays the same commercials, plays the wrong content when casting. Always takes 15 minutes to get the right content to play. Major pain. Really hate this app.

  85. Mike M-avatar

    I was not able to actually watch an entire movie. Every few minutes I had to watch some commercials then on the third or fourth set of commercials, it got stuck in some sort of loop. When the commercial finished the movie would start for about 10 seconds then the commercials would restart. Not worth screwing around with. Time to uninstall.

    Just plain doesn't work. Gets stuck in loops saying there was a playback error when it hasn't even started playing yet, ads get stuck and won't play, bad user interface. Avoid this app!

    Garbage. Watching movie was fine til I got to the commercials which froze constantly taking 7 minutes to get through 1 minute of commercials. Too bad, a few movies I would have liked to watch. What a waste, don"t bother.

  89. Billy West-avatar

    Awful. App malfunctions if you skip back or forward. Then it spirals into an infinite loop trying to shows ads repeatedly without advancing the program. The app thinks you are trying to skip ads..and keeps catering to the advertisers. Your show will not advance ever. This waitress is busy with her kids she brought from home. She cares less about your order and becomes your punisher. Uninstalled sorry to say. Thank you for your time.

    Too many adds. I would rather pay for no adds like Netflix. I do like the set up how you seperate each catagory. Makes app enjoyable. Sorry,there are way too many adds though. I will uninstall not to return. Theres a reason for adds I understand that. This app goes overboard on adds. I don't see interesting. Adds too intrusive to enjoy app. It used to be ok. Stop changing a good app. Good bye.

  91. michael albach-avatar

    Commercials commercials commercials commercials....and most the time the same commercial like 4 times in a row...I mean right after another..the SAME commercial . I know they have to have sponcers but this app is absolutely NUTS with commercials . WAYYYYYYY to many commercials . I don't know if it's greed or bad planning but it sucks !!! And I'm SOOOOOOOOOOP SICK of seeing the " Sick of Donald Trump " adds...I mean seriously..over and over again...keep the politics out of your site sick of them!

    I really like this app but seeing as how my Sony Blu-ray player just told me that the service will be ending on December 1st of this year I don't exactly like it too much anymore. A few months ago it was Hulu that was no longer available on the Sony Blu-ray player and now it's crackle so I guess so Sony is going right down the tubes. 👎👎👎😪😵😢

  93. Jimmy D-avatar

    Still love crackle, but I definitely am not a fan of this app. Too many glitches, and everytime you have to watch the ads, you get to literally watch repeats of the same stupid advertisements over and over and over again. Had one where I had to watch the equivalent of 6 adds, and 4 of them were the same one.

  94. JT_MaxMissles-avatar

    Wouldn't load a movie on the TV app, so I downloaded this to try and cast to the TV. While doing so, this app gave me multiple errors about my internet even though my internet was working fine. It then gave me a 30 second add after IT screwed up. Very fed up as the TV app was working absolutely fine until the climax of the movie. Very frustrated and would not recommend.

  95. L B-avatar

    Really 25 ads in one movie,that's ridiculous to much!!! I understand why u need ads for it to be free but who can enjoy watching a movie with that many interruptions.& at the end of the movie it froze up & its took over 5min. For it to play again & not even at the spot it left off at. Piture quality is crappy,volume goes off during movie.That's messed up 😐uninstalling!!

    Decent app for watching movies, dont even mind the commercials they play every 10 mins or so.. my only complaint is that sometimes when it cuts to commercials itll get stuck in an endless loop of the ads, 10 secs of the movie and right back into ads. Then the same 10secs and right back to ads... over and over and then makes you restart the whole movie.

  97. Jared McCollum-avatar

    I had to uninstall. I watched one episode and now nothing will play. I mean the commercials still play but not the shows. Too bad because I really like some of the shows they have. Maybe I'll try it again in the future but for now, it's a stinker

  98. Julian Brigham-avatar

    Once the first add plays then the movie just keeps rewinding and playing the same adds. Couldn't even finish what I was watching because this incompetent piece of garbage app just wanted to show me adds.

    Decided to watch "Star Trek First Contact" and give this Crackle app a whirl. The quality of the movie was extremely poor. I think this app might be a dud.

    Every month I download this app hoping it will be improved. Then every month I uninstall it again out of frustration. Initial loading is seriously delayed and after starting, the file will stop and start continuously making movie watching a chore rather than an enjoyable experience. Constant crashes. A company as big as Sony should be embarrassed with such sub-standard technology. Have provided feedback directly to developer numerous times with no discernable result.
