Crackle gets NBCUniversal streaming rights, including 'Ray', 'King Kong' Crackle has announced a multi-year agreement with NBCUniversal that will give it exclusive rights to feature films from the studios library.
Over the next three years, more than 140 titles will roll out from the NBCUniversal, starting from this weekend. The deal gives Crackle the exclusive ad-supported video on demand (AVOD) rights to a variety of feature films including Miami Vice, starring Colin Farrel and Jamie Foxx, Jarhead and Peter Jackson's King Kong.

The Sony-owned Crackle streaming service is available in 21 countries and features some exclusive content, including "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," with Jerry Seinfeld.

Financial terms of the deal stuck with NBCUniversal were not disclosed by either party.

"As an ad-supported, over-the-top network we pride ourselves on having a prime selection of premium content. Bringing NBCUniversal's collection of library films to Crackle complements our original programming and reinforces our commitment to provide viewers with even more streaming choices," said Philip Lynch, senior vice president of Digital Networks & Games for Sony Pictures Television.

Great.... Another streaming service for me to ignore and avoid. Big deal, you have movies that are almost 10 years old. Anyone who would want to watch these probably already have them on blu ray or DVD. Worthless!!!!!
