When it first came out, it played 1 commercial like 3 times in a row. Then it added a couple different ones and it was okay. Now the ads last up to 4 and half minutes… Starting to feel like I'm watching more commercials than shows. When it gets back I almost forget where it left off or it comes back just to play the credits. Less to no ads you'll get your 5 stars

I sat to watch a movie and got 2 comercial ads… then after that on every 10 minutes you get 7 to 8 comercials. That's more comercial than the normal tv channel at home… don't worth the time to watch a movie… you'll be 3 plus hours trying to finished it because of so many comercial ads… trash app

Nothing much to review, just trying to signing in to that site is worst than cracking a safe. Probably they are just
Getting as much information from you as they can. What for? Only they know.

Awful service, worse than TV. If you try to continue watching where you left off the day before it usually goes back 4 scenes. If you fast forward you will immediately have to watch another 6 commercials. Sometimes after already watching those commercials another 5 ads pop up. Its the same propaganda political ads over and over without balanced audio so if you don't mute it right away you'll be in for a treat. There are other free streaming services like TUBI that are so much better. Tubi doesn't even have commercials. As soon as I'm done watching startup I'm deleting this dumpster fire crackle app

Please turn down the commercials. The volume blasts you off the couch compared to show volume. It's ridiculous. Love it except for that

WHAT are you doing Crackle? Watched ONE movie and will never be back. The INSANE amount of commercials and length of your commercials are not worth watching movies on your app. You should stop a movie THREE TIMES and only 3 times to show up to 1 min of ads each. We've watched ONE MOVIE. We're only 1/2 way and you've stopped the movie every 10 minutes for 2 minutes of ads each and they BUFFER and last even longer than 2 minutes! PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR REVIEWS. I'm making a point of NOT giving any of your advertisers my money. I've made note of the companies advertising during this movie.

The absolute worst free tv site on the internet, which is expected seeing how most all of their commercials/ads are nothing but liberal nonsense messages, which they automatically show every 10 mins throughout your movie. Quick research shows that this company is based out of San Francisco, which should be your first clue on how trash this site is. ALL LIVES MATTER!

Clunky, redundant and absolutely infuriating. After im done with this series ill delete crackle.
Ads are absolutely insane in frequency and time. The interactive ad is complete bull$#*! and will not save you from ads even though it says it will. The interface is utterly horrible and any fwd or reverse search in your selection will que up ads. Its just $#*!ing horrible. $#*! U CRACKLE U HORRENDOUS PILE OF $#*! APP!

First, I was watching on my laptop. I got through 2 1/2 movies. Then my laptop kept restarting itself. I had to delete all my cookies and shut it down in between the restarts it kept doing. All the important tabs I had open, closed. I went to continue watching the movie on my phone. It played fine. I went to sleep and just paused it. I woke up and the same thing happened with my phone. I don't remember but it used to mess up my old desktop computer.

From the few comments I see, nobody else has these problems. But I'm beyond pissed. All my work from both devices… gone.

Crackle is honestly such a trash app. On my ps4 I was watching a movie and I fell asleep. So I wake up the next morning to finish so I had to skip back to the part I was at. It doesn't even skip. And 1/5 when it does skip you get almost to the point you are at and then an ad plays and completely restarts the movie. Been spending 20+ minutes just trying to skip back to the part I was at

Every six minute commercial

Seems like the commercial is on more than movie
I understand they need to make money but every six minutes A. commercial that's too much

An idea Every 15 minutes. Maybe six commercial
I bet your customers wouldn't mind that

I have nothing against watching commercials to watch a movie for free, but ads every 5-7 minutes is ridiculous. It's so frustrating and impossible to enjoy the movie with the constant disruptions.

The movies are decent for a free service and I don't mind watching commercials, BUT THE COMMERCIALS ARE INSANELY OFF THE WALL WAY TO LOUD.

Seriously, the commercials are out of control and the volume is intense enough to damage your ears if listening on headphones.

If the cost of watching a free movie is someone YELLING IN MY EAR every five minutes, then why bother?

Crackle has some good movies, but every 10mins they have about 3mins of commercials. So, if you are desperate enough to put up with the commercials, you can find movies worth watching. I'm not that desperate (usually).

Crackle is such trash. They advertise things they dont even have. Why advertise online that you have all these tv shows and movies, then you go to the trouble of getting their poor excuse of a platform, to find out none of them are hosted on their servers??????? Please dump gasoline on your servers and throw a match on them. I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE.

I don't mind the commercials, however; when selecting ounly the one commercial option the volume is overbearing and obnoxious to almost double the initial show volume.

Tried to watch a movie (Cold Blood) but the show kept being interrupted by a public service ad for having a cell phone free dinner. An actually funny clever ad for not using your phone during dinner time with the family.

The problem is it runs in a loop over & over got so maddening I just gave up. Movie was pretty good what a shame.
If that commercial isn't aired CRACKLE runs another ad over & over again for another Free Movie about college debt. Why an ad for a movie that is listed & free?
A great timely subject & possibly interesting by why run that ad & not any other films or a commercial Sony could actually make money on. Weird so weird, a subtle form of torture making it impossible to bother watching any film.

I am curious what is Sony thinking? More commercials could generate revenue but a public service announcement on a stacked loop? Has Sony abandon the effort & just letting Crackle die but must wait it out to finish a contract they signed? Its no joke its beyond satire.

I just wanted to check out the site for older movies but could not even load up movies or TV shows for me. I would of given it a zero but I can't do that. I have great internet and it still failed.

Let's start at the beginning. When you first open Crackle, you're greeted with a hime screen with various titles. The interface isn't at all appealing or easy to navigate. There are no features such as a queue, so you have to browse around for a specific show or movie. I can deal with that if the app is providing free content but before you can even begin to browse, whatever Crackle sponsored TV show or movie begins autoplaying full screen making navigation nearly impossible because the screen freezes. But don't worry, that movie or show you didn't want to watch will keep playing uninterrupted! It takes real effort to stop the show or movie which leads me to believe Crackle gets paid only if a viewer watches the promoted content for a certain amount of time. You're basically going to watch that mess you didn't want to watch for at least one minute. No amount of quick maneuvering is going to stop it playing.

Like others have repeatedly stated, Crackle has a decent library of free movies and television shows but trying to watch them is maddening because of the volume of commercials. I don't mind ads, especially when the app is providing free content, but the amount Crackle plays is ridiculous. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to when the commercials air. I tend to watch old sitcoms and oftentimes, the opening credits are interrupted by six commercials that stop and start at random. Then one scene of the video will air followed by more commercials! You can forget about trying to fast forward, rewind or start any video over. You'll get six commercials and then the video goes right back to the place the original place.

There's also feature that allows you to watch just one "interactive commercial" that is suppose to last just 30 seconds instead of the normal six stop and start ads. That is a joke. It takes a good minute to "interact" with the video which will eventually load to play at an ear drum blasting volume. The video will then freeze and restart giving you the option to press a button to start your show. That button never works the first five times. This entire time saving process takes at least three minutes, so you're not saving any time.

Overall, Crackle is a bust which is a shame because they do have some good content that seemingly isn't available elsewhere. There are far too many apps that provide free content with ads on the market now that have more user friendly features and don't force you to watch things you don't want to watch. Find those and avoid Crackle.

I can handle the commercials but do they have to SCREAM AT ME? Also why is it when you start watching a movie and then later go back to watching it, if you forward to tht point in the movie you not only get the regular 4 commercials, but after 10 seconds of movie, you get another 4 commercials SCREAMING AT YOU! TubiTV is definitely the best. They have an occasional commercial and their commercials are quieter than the movie. Actually the lower volume catches my attention and I find myself watching the commercial because I'm trying to hear what they are saying. Think about it Crackle, screaming commercials annoy people and drive viewers away from watching your app.
