Sony Crackle isn’t the first place people think of for original programming. It does gain the occasional contract and is slowly pushing out content, though. In another decade, it’s possible we’ll view Crackle on the same level as premium channels like HBO and Showtime or digital services like Netflix and Hulu.
For now, it’s a great place to find action comedies targeted directly at 18-35 year old males.
If you’re looking for something new to watch, Sony Crackle may have you covered. Here is the best movie and TV content released on the platform in 2018.
