The movie service from Sony offers ad supported flicks for free.
If you want to watch films like 'Ghostbusters,' 'The DaVinci Code' and 'A Few Good Men' without shelling out a dime, then you'll be happy to know that Crackle is now available on a wide range of products.
Crackle is a free movie service owned and operated by Sony. Instead of paying a rental fee or a subscription, you'll get ads. Not a bad tradeoff, all things considered. The biggest downside to Crackle is that the content is currently only available in standard definition - no HD streaming.
If you own a Roku, PS3, or any Bravia Internet Video devices like TVs and Blu-ray players then you can access Crackle now. Google TV owners can hit up Crackle as well, though they've been able to do so since launch.
