Crackle- Now commercial free?

27 replies 5174 views Edited Aug 24, 2012

After some time has passed and never really too pleased at the way crackle worked I decided to try it again.  I am glad to say it is working now almost flawlessly. Plus there are no commercials which surprises me and seems almost too good to be true.  Is this going to remain this way?

I don't recall the Home version of Crackle ever having commercials, although i've only used it once or twice. The browser version definitely did though.

agreed, i dont really think crackle within home showed any commercials, although the minute and a half of commercials each every few minutes, still less commercials than you would see on TV lol

I haven't used Crackle in Home for a few weeks now, but it always had commercials about every 20 minutes or so. I will have to check that out now to see.

I can say that yes they did show commercials but I only got them every now and then but I haven't used it in a few weeks so im not sure if this is permanent or not

Really?  I flipped **** almost a year ago because i couldn't watch And Now For Something Completely Different without getting commercials every 10 minutes.  It bugged me to the point where I stopped using Crackle entirely.

Thanks to nDreams and the new Xi, my PS3 froze during Xi's download process and put me in a perpetual loop of file restorations every time I start up my PS3. I can no longer play Playstation Home or any of my PS3 games. 600+ dollars spent on Home content, down the ****ing drain. I'm done with Playstation Home, I'm done with Sony, and I'm done with this site, as my current PS3 situation no longer warrants my being here. Bye everyone.

Are you also talking about the radio available on Crackle? Beause that had such awful commercials I just couldn't stand listening to it. I didn't even watch the TV shows, but would steer clear permanently if I discovered they had commercials.

If it all goes commercial free, I might very well pay for one of the portable EODs coming out. That would change everything (especially for radio).

yeah even Crackle had commercials, but if its commercial free I wouldnt expect it to last too long.

I'll bet a hole in a donut as soon as they start pushing products for the holiday season LOOT TV's will be flooded with commercials

If the commercials are gone, then where are they getting the money from to run those movies?
