Stop complaining about the ads. It's free. Which means you pay them nothing. Which mean they don't make money from you. They make money from ADVERTISERS who pay Crackle to show those ads. Ads are the price you pay for this free service. Use your brain. It's called business.
My issue with Crackle is their TERRIBLE Xbox One app. Not only do I occasionally have mid-movie crashes, rewinding and fast-forwarding also cause the app to crash. This app is useless and only makes me want to pursue these films by other means. Fix it. Other than that, Crackle has limited selection, but usually watchable films. Fix the app issues on Xbox One and they could make a lot more in ad revenue.
Shows what happens when money is allowed to be dumped into a movie with no plan of action.
I am trying to relax and watch a movie, i just had surgery on my wisdom teeth and i want to enjoy a movie. Well the ADS are REPETITIVE and sometimes they will repeat the ads over and over and over and over and not play the DAMN MOVIES! I have had to sign out MANY times and restart a movie because the ADS won't stop playing. I have the stupid ADS stuck in my head. I have been trying to watch this one movie but the ADS played for 20 DAMN MINUTES!!!! OVER AND OVER AND OVER!!!!!! So guess what, i had to sign right back out and start over again! I enjoy when i can watch a movie, but when the ads take over and won't let the movie play, that's when i rethink the stars i should give "CRACKLE"
Repeating commercials on an eternal loop. Need to restart after every commercial break. Great shows and movies.
Crackle is the worst...don't waste your time downloading, it was 1st introduced to my family via Vizio TV has never worked, then I gave it another try and downloaded on my Android Tablet,it's compatable, and it still does not play the move through all the way....HORRIBLE HORRIBLE App for movies!!!!!!
As I wrote above, don't waste your time downloading or even trying to make an account. With tons of commercials every 10 mins that last up to 2 mins. It's not worth it!! I played it on my Xbox one and it kept buffering and skipping so much!! It kept cutting off parts of a movie. It was horrible. Thank goodness I didn't pay to have this $#*!.
$#*! last night me and my girl watched that movie Armored and it started right away witch was sweet then The Mask of Zoro came on another great movie then ISpy I haven't seen that $#*! in years then Once apon a time in Mexico Just Great Movies back to back and it's easy as hell to navigate I use Xbox one those $#*!s are just retarted get Crackle $#*!s FREE and theirs some good $#*! on there have fun
crackle sucks...consistent with buffering. I can take the commercials but to stop playing in the middle of movie or the end, is just frustrating. I don't like to even deal with it. Good movie selection, but horrible quality. I'll stick to amazon, Netflix and hulu. I'm more patient with it, when I have a glass of wine, otherwise I don't even use it
Ive been using Crackle for years. Yes it has a lot of commercials, so does TV. I got rid of cable and don't want to pay for Netflix. On Windows 10 it works great. You want no ads and free, go to Putlocker or Coke and Popcorn and get virus' and terrible popups that freeze your stuff. I wish they had more content but its good for free. The Dead Rising Movies are pretty good for original content. Maybe the console experience is different. I say if you can make something better for free please do and share it. If not, then stop complaining.
Hey, Crackle, thanks for the Seinfeld car show. Oh wait, I can't even get to it on my Xbox One app because you choose to automatically play whatever crap is hot in your opinion. I press every button on the controller and nothing happens?? I'm stuck with your suggested garbage, brought in mid-scene?? Nope. Gone. Sorry, Jerry, looks like you're drinking your coffee alone from now on. "Crackle: you get what you pay for"
ad after ad after ad after ad... and thats before the show even starts! and its the same ad, over and over and over. what in the world are these people thinking? Oh and don't even get me started on what happens if your movie hangs in the middle. Yep- you have to start all over again. (with all the same ads of course)
I use Crackle on my Xbox One and they recently changed the UI. It now automatically starts a show or movie when you opening the app ALREADY IN PROGRESS!
Why on earth would I want to watch something that's already started? This is a horrible design flaw that is beyond my comprehension.
ads, ads, ads
astoundingly slow to load
more ads and yet more ads
almost impossible to get to the content listing-- it just plays what it wants to play and $#*! you
