Movies

While Crackle's movie selection might not be the greatest, it does still have some entertaining and popular titles. Just don't expect it to have any new releases.

TV shows

Considering the app is free, Crackle's TV show selection is impressive. It includes old favorites like "Seinfeld," as well as new titles like "Dexter" and "The Walking Dead."

Good, but not great

Unfortunately, Crackle does not stream in HD. That said, the quality of videos is still very high.
