Crackle - adult ads (R-rated) during PG films

Posted: 2014-02-28 by    VividE
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
While watching a PG movie with kids, every 7-8 minute, there is an ad. Right before the ad, NBC airs an ad for Hanibal, showing a person preparing / cooking a human leg. R-rated. Scared the kids to death.
In what world is this allowed ? Who thought it was a good idea to show an ad for an R-rated tv-series during PG showings ?

I strongly recommend staying away from Crackle....

Crackle - I give this site 100,000 thumbs down

I canceled cable tv because of too many advertisements and not enough choice on what they play and also they repeat the shows so often and mostly play old movies. I tried crackle.com and lo' and behold...advertisement forced on us every 7 or so minutes and they do not even break into the show a reasonable manner. It's downright offensive and angering to suddenly have the show stop. I muted the tv every time but still it's horrible. I have tried to remove my account but apparently they only allow deactivating the account. Apparently they will keep your info indefinitely, forever...whatever....

Crackle - The movie app does not work properly

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
The movie app does not work properly. the first 20 min of the movies works fine, then the advertising begins and goes into a continuous loop mode repeating ads over and over.

so you watch the first 20 min of the video then its locked up in ads.

I agree with most, this is a waste of time. 1-04-2013....

Crackle - Frequent, repetitive commercials + lousy selection

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
When I first got my Roku I checked out Crackle and wasn't exactly impressed, but there were 4 or 5 TV shows and a handful of movies that were OK. I decided to go with it because it's free. I wasn't thrilled by the frequent Skittles commercials (they seem to be Crackle's primary advertiser), but I was impressed by the picture quality. Then in October they pulled almost all the content I liked. Now their TV content seems to be mostly Anime, which i do NOT like.. Frequent, repetitive commercials + lousy selection = no Crackle in my Roku channel lineup. Sony can do better....

Crackle - Too many of the same commercials and too many commercials

Posted: 2012-11-22 by    Robsan
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
Too many of the same commercials and too many commercials. They don't update the playlist often enough, too many (crappy) foreign films either poorly dubbed and or no sub-titling. This is speaking from the Crackle Xbox experience. Today they started showing a beer commercial. Beer commercials being aired on the Xbox 360 where the majority of users are under the age of 18. Crackle is simply around to collect the advertising revenue. They do very little to accommodate the end user. they should have called it Crapple....

Crackle - Stay away from this site

Posted: 2012-10-22 by    Loboriqe
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
Seemed okay at first, I would still rank NetFlix, RedBox, other sources of movies much higher. Ads are annoying. Sony owns this, why ads? Out of the blue, I am getting "Service cannot be accessed at this time because server replied invalid information" errors. This makes no sense and there appears to be nothing I can do about. Another wasted app on my POS Sony BlueRay Player (BTW, definitely check out the LG BlueRay - don't go with Sony)....

Crackle - I have tried to watch movies and tv shows on crackle and it is so bad

I have tried to watch movies and tv shows on crackle and it is so bad. I continue to try to use and and the video drops while the audio continues to play. The movie or show will start over or just stop. I have even had to delete the app and put it back on as it will just get stuck on a black screen and not do anything. The commercials that play so often always work PERFECT!! So what can I say It took me 2 hours to watch a 30 min episode of Bewitched....

Crackle - The commercials are so frequent that the viewing experience is ruined

Posted: 2012-06-15 by    Hipone
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 3 votes
Crackle doesn't have the best selection of movies, but there are enough that I WOULD use the service IF it weren't for the incessant commercials. I understand services like Crackle make money off advertisements, but don't the Crackle executives read reviews of their site? The commercials are so frequent that the viewing experience is ruined--which means I'd rather NOT watch a movie than be rudely jarred out of entertainment-mode with garish, tacky, too-frequent commercials. Business people remark often that time is money. If they believe this, then they insult us by wasting our...

Crackle - Crackle has a commercial every 7-8 min

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 8 votes
We canceled our cable because of too many commercials. Crackle has a commercial every 7-8 min. Very irritating. I realize it is a free movie channel but you think they could spread out the commercials to every 20-30 min. There is absolutely no reason to have the same Crackle commercial so often. Not worth it... We will stick with Netflix!!...

Crackle - This is a throw-back service and isn't worth your time

I hate watching TV because of the commercials. I tried watching a movie on Crackle. The selection of movies was OK, the video quality fine, but the interruptions were just as annoying and intrusive as TV. I'd rather pay Netflix than watch this ... I tried it once ... and this is all I could stand. This is a throw-back service and isn't worth your time....
