How to Watch Crackle


Crackle gives you access to streaming TV shows and movies for free. You can watch all videos on Crackle from your computer, some Internet-ready TVs and mobile devices. Unlike some streaming video services, all videos on the site are free to watch. However, you will see commercials within the programming to help keep it that way. All you need is an account and you can start watching classic, current -- and even original -- Crackle TV shows and full-length movies.
