- Today it was announced that Sony's TV and movie video streaming service Crackle is heading to the PlayStation 3 console for free.
PS3 owners will find Crackle via the built-in Web browser, and the homepage will have a direct link available.
To quote from GamesRadar.com (linked above): Crackle, an ad-supported video streaming service that just so happens to be owned by Sony Pictures, announced a sweeping expansion today.
It's now available on numerous devices including Sony Blu-ray players and TVs, as well as Roku boxes and, of course, the PS3.
Crackle works like Hulu, but it has a stronger focus on movies, with hundreds of films available, as well as original programming.
Among the studios supporting Crackle are Columbia Pictures, TriStar Pictures, Screen Gems, and Sony Pictures Classics. Incidentally, those are all Sony Pictures studios. The company says it adds 20 new titles per month.
