    Just my opinion-I paid for Hulu Plus for older TV shows and selection was not worth paying for-even if free not worth looking at!
    Using Crackle on PS3 and Ipad and WOW-for older TV shows unbelievable the selection. Showing my age I guess. But for the price "FREE" you can not beat it. Commercials are minimal for time and amount.
    So the question is......Any chance of adding Crackle????

    I don't mean to be a jerk, but if Crackle is so much better, then Hulu+ must be horrible (I haven't signed up yet, so I don't know about Hulu+). I just went to Crackle's website and the only TV shows from the 50s and 60s were "I Dream of Jeannie" and "Bewitched." That's it!

    From the 70s they only offer "Barney Miller," "Good Times," "Sanford and Son" and "Soap" (plus a couple of Japanese animated shows).

    I don't know where you live, but if you dig out the old rabbit ears you'll find a lot of "over the air" digital substations (like Antenna TV, Retro TV and ME TV) each have a great selection of older TV shows. Tomorrow they'll start airing "Burns and Allen" on Antenna TV -- looking forward to that. Looking forward to yesterday.

    Isn't Crackle just Sony's old catalog of shows and movies? I like it, but it's not huge yet... FREE however is a good thing.

    Some where...
    Sorry I took a look at Crackle only about 7 or 8 shows that was in the 50's and 60's are on Crackle. Hulu has more then that just in the 60's. It is a no go for me.

    Crackle is free however. I use it on my Roku all the time. They don't offer HD streams for newer content but its still close to dvd quality.
