Finally it has launched, but despite being a free movie and tv streaming service for Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers – just don’t expect the content to rival anything that Netflix and LOVEFiLM provide for a premium.
Crackle describes itself as the place to experience pure entertainment: full-length movies, TV shows, and original series from genres that embody cool – all uncut, uncensored, and unbelievably free. It is one of the fastest growing entertainment destinations today, featuring only the genres you love; comedy, action, drama, sci-fi, horror – anywhere you are. Crackle was created in the summer of 2007 out of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s studio lot in Los Angeles, CA.
It is a 75.34mb download and is available right now on your Xbox 360 console.
EDIT: Please note that it seems the App on Xbox LIVE on it’s launch day is experiencing loading issues. Our guess is more than likely server problems due to the demand. Hopefully it will all be sorted out by Crackle very soon.
But it’s also worth noting that a strong, reliable, and stable internet connection plays a vital role on how smooth you’ll experience your movie-watching experience. Which is why it’s best that you check some of the best ISPs in your area to ensure you make the right investment at the end of the day.
