Sony Pictures Entertainment has released Crackle, a universal iOS app for its online network of the same name that offers free streaming movies and TV shows. Available movies include The DaVinci Code, Spider-Man 3, House of Flying Daggers and hundreds of others plus TV show episodes of Seinfeld, Bewitched and more.
Crackle can stream video over Wi-Fi or 3G (though you’ll want to be careful about your data usage if you’re on a metered plan with your carrier, of course). Crackle is free to download and watching available content is also free though it is ad-supported.
Crackle is a free alternative to other movie streaming services like those offered by Netflix and Hulu though it doesn’t seem to offer as many recent movie releases and shows. However, we’re not one to complain at the opportunity to watch 80′s classics like The Last Dragon and Ghostbusters for free on demand with a commercial or two thrown in.
