Crackle is a free streaming app for watching movies and TV shows. In today’s guide, I will provide you with detailed steps to install Crackle on FireStick and Fire TV devices.
Crackle app is available on Amazon App Store, Google Play Store, Apple App Store, Roku, and many others.
With so many paid streaming services available on the official Amazon app store, Crackle comes as a pleasant surprise with its free TV shows and movies offerings. You can also visit the Crackle website to watch content there if you like.
Crackle was earlier known as “Sony Crackle”. However, when the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” company acquired this service, they renamed it to just “Crackle” in 2019.
The content selection of Crackle is impressive. You will find movies, TV shows, and even some Crackle originals. You will likely find many titles that you like.
You will find loads of popular titles and even classics.
However, there is one drawback. Crackle is only available in the United States and its territories. But if you have a US amazon.com account and a good VPN such as ExpressVPN, you will be able to bypass the geo-restriction and enjoy Crackle anywhere in the World. All you have to do is change the VPN server location to any location in the United States.
💡Note: If Crackle is not available in your country, you can still install it following our guide on How to install and use Amazon Fire TV Apps Outside their Intended Country.
Because this is a free app, it’s expected that the app will have ads. Yes, it does but not to the point of being annoying.
Crackle is also featured in our Best Apps for Free Movies and TV Shows list.
