http://decider.com/2016/08/08/crackle-chief-eric-berger-interview/ I have used Crackle a decent amount over the last couple of years. Granted, not nearly as much as Netflix / Hulu / Amazon; but I have felt the ads were worth the content I was viewing. Two of my favorite shows (Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee / Chosen) are on Crackle, and I did enjoy SuperMansion and The Art of More. Each of the shows have excellent production value and are worth the time to watch them. Granted, I do not pay a great amount of attention to the ads anymore as I record them via PlayOn for later viewing, and the software automatically skips the ads (I do the same with Hulu, CBS, and CW – I hate ads). I am very much looking forward to StartUp, and hope the show is as good as the quality of the actors involved. Also, Snatch looks like it might be something worth watching as well. Personally, I hope Crackle continues to increase the amount of original content it offers, especially if it stays free / ad-supported.
