Best answer: Yes - Watching TV shows or movies through Crackle is easy on your Vizio SmartCast TV either through the SmartCast app or via the Chromecast option from your mobile device.

SmartCast your Crackle

Sony Crackle is a free, ad-supported TV and movie streaming service. They have a broad, albeit slightly dated, catalog of movies and TV shows. Sony's feature films and television programs, as well as many from large content partners such as 20th Century Fox, Miramax, Paramount Pictures, and many others, are available. Movies like Drive, Desperado, Ghost Rider, Hook, and many others will be at your fingertips. Some Crackle originals are available such as the comedies SuperMansion and Snatch, or drama with The Oath.

Getting started with Sony Crackle is easy enough. As mentioned above the account is free; however, to keep it that way, there are ads/commercials throughout your viewing with no way to remove them. Another potential drawback for you may be that the content is no 4K content, and not all is in HD. If after these caveats you are still interested, and a Vizio television with SmartCast is your TV of choice, then we can get you watching on your big screen in no time.
