What is Crackle, and how can I watch it?

Crackle is an Internet streaming service that provides a wealth of free TV, entertainment and movies. Does Sony own Crackle? Well, it’s a joint-owned project, with Sony Pictures Television and Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment taking care of business.

Crackle is available in 21 countries (and presented in 3 languages). They do make some of their own original programming—On Point and Going for Broke, for example—as well as delivering a range of firm favourites acquired from big-name industry players.

With around 700 movies and over 100 TV series, that’s a lot of free, easy to access TV to choose from. When you consider Sony subsidiary companies include Columbia Pictures, TriStar Pictures, and Sony Pictures Classics, their access to great content certainly isn’t limited. And it doesn’t stop there! Other content partners include Miramax, Paramount, Walt Disney and Universal Studios.

So, if you need a movie fix that could include Seven Years in Tibet, A Few Good Men or Zero Dark Thirty, well, you’ve got nothing to lose by logging on to Crackle.

You’ll find Crackle on most of your streaming devices, including Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Chromecast. Crackle’s service is also available on the major games consoles and built into some of the brand name Smart TVs.

There’s plenty to gain from logging on to Crackle, and nothing to lose. Funded by the occasional advertisement, it truly is a 100% free service.

How can I watch Crackle with StreamLocator?

Crackle’s primary markets are in the US and Australia, but it’s also available in a handful of other countries. The protection rights for each region are different, so Crackle prevents anyone outside those locations from accessing their service.

But that’s nothing for you to worry about. StreamLocator makes Crackle’s servers believe that you’re in the US, allowing you access to their exceptional USA viewing.

No complicated settings or software installation required

The beauty of StreamLocator is that there’s no additional software to install on the devices you use to access your online content. There also isn’t any need to change or instigate special DNS settings. The StreamLocator router takes care of everything for you.

It works seamlessly with all of your smart-tech devices. Apple iPhones and iPads, Android phones and tablets, games consoles, Smart TVs and provider hardware (including Roku, Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV devices) all work beautifully with our system.

Simply plug our router into any of the inputs on your home WiFi router, follow a few simple steps to create your unique account, and that’s pretty much it! Switch over to the StreamLocator network instead of your usual WiFi option and let StreamLocator do the rest. You've got Crackle streaming to whichever device you choose.

Your download speeds are exactly the same, and your browsing functionality or gaming won’t be affected in the slightest. All online and offline activity will be just the same as it always was—apart from now, you’ll be able to access all the blocked content you choose.

How to watch Crackle from outside the USA

Crackle uses geolocation blockers to prevent access to their content by anyone outside the region where they need their viewers to be located.

The most well-known methods to get around these types of blocks are VPN and Smart DNS (or DNS switchers). Both of these options help you to disguise your location and provide access to content.

StreamLocator adapts these intelligent technologies to provide Crackle’s servers with just what they need. That means we’ve got the ideal option for every opportunity. Our clever box communicates with servers to find out the best way to get around any block and provides them with precisely what they need.

How to register for Crackle from outside the USA

Crackle is one of the free services that doesn’t require you to register to view their content. If you do set up a Crackle login—and with StreamLocator in place, it’s just as you would in the correct location—you have access to a few extra functions that make organizing what you want to watch, that little bit easier.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Crackle from outside the USA?

VPN and DNS methods are the standard ways to bypass the geolocation blockers provided by Crackle, and there are plenty to choose from in today’s market. Some will work better than others for particular systems and servers, and some might not work on them at all.

Because StreamLocator works in a different way to traditional solutions, it is, without doubt, your best bet for every situation. Its communication with servers is automated, making life even easier, and it’s always turned on and ready to get to work.

VPN is a great option when it comes to protecting your data over a shared network. Hackers and data-thieves love hotel, café and airport WiFi networks, as they can often provide an easy way to access your devices and important information. However, if you’re looking for a way to watch masses of geo-protected content from home, there’s no better option than StreamLocator.

You can access as many different countries using as many different devices as you need. There’s no limit, and just like your WiFi network, it’s accessible from any room in your home.
