At iTunes and Amazon.com, you have to pay for every movie you rent, every TV show you buy. At Netflix and Hulu, you pay a monthly subscription fee. If you don't want to pay for any of it, you need to go to Crackle. You won't find the latest hits at Crackle, but you won't have to reach for a credit card either and there are tons of solid entertainment choices. Nothing is totally free, though, so there are two trade-offs: You have to watch some ads and there's little HD content. Crackle is owned by Sony, so its library favors Sony productions, but there are also some original series like Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. You can use Crackle on a large number of devices (from smartphones to tablets to TVs to game consoles) so chances are, you may already own a device with Crackle access.
