Plex has added Crackle content to its free streaming service. Which is the ad-supported Plex Free Movies and TV. This means that Plex users in the US suddenly have access to thousands more TV shows, movies, and documentaries for free.
In December 2019, Plex launched its own free streaming service . This is full of movies, TV shows, and documentaries, all of which are free to watch. However, Plex has partnered with Crackle to bring thousands more free titles to viewers in the US.
How to Watch Crackle Content on Plex
It should be noted that most of Crackle’s catalog is older movies and TV shows you’ve probably already seen. However, there are some big names, with movies including Captain Phillips and The Illusionist, and TV shows including Hell’s Kitchen and Roseanne.
As is the fashion these days, Crackle has already produced its own original content. This includes On Point, a docuseries following high school basketball players, and Yelawolf: A Slumerican Life, which takes you on tour with the hip-hop pioneer.
Plex claims that as a result of its partnership with Crackle, “Plex users in the US will now be able to stream more individual movies than you can stream on Netflix.” Which is a bold claim but an intriguing one for those who don’t mind watching ads.
We’ve got a ton of titles new to Plex this month. Enjoy big-screen hits such as Captain Phillips, Failure to Launch, Patriot Games, The Usual Suspects, Bulletproof Monk, and more.
