Major Cleanup Needed[edit]

This article seems to have obvious and significant contribution from people related to the company and project it is about. It reads more like an advertisement than an encyclopedia. Added Peacock and COI banners to the top of this article, and have made massive deletions, including "content offered" section, as it is simply a list of movies and shows along with the sponsors of each, thus bearing no utility to an encyclopedia (though plenty to a commercial). Other content deleted included extraneous content from the history section, and the section about Crackle's distribution network, as they are not pertinent to an encyclopedia article. This article needs attention as a Peacock. Dpetley (talk) 04:30, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Untitled[edit]

Well now. It looks as if Crackle is on youtube then.

Seeking advice on updating the Crackle Wikipedia page. Full disclosure: I could not be more biased, I work for the company (note the Sony IP address). Nonetheless, the page is quite outdated, particularly in its description of Crackle distribution network: Crackle now has an IOS app and an Android app, and is available on Sony Bravia TVs, ROKU set top boxes, and Playstation and Xbox gaming consoles; all of this can be cited via press articles. As an employee, is it even permissible for me to submit these updates? Or should I just wait for one of our viewers to do so? Any advice from a Wikipedian would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks for your consideration. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.84.225.10 (talk) 01:11, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Looked for information on Crackle[edit]

Disinterested commenter here. Was simply looking for info on Crackle. The entry reads factual, has no laudatory, commercial, sales pitch, or promotional angle to it and told me what I wanted to know--what it is, who runs it, what's included. Not sure why the disclaimers are needed about potential inaccuracy, etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.88.171.208 (talk) 13:12, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

What I'm curious about is what's the catch. As a PS3 owner, it seems too good to be true. Will there be a fee? How does Sony generate revenue from such a service? Which devices have it. Those are things I wish the article would contain. If someone from Sony is reading this page, you need to fire your PR people, they're doing a piss poor job of getting the word out about this service. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.79.2.203 (talk) 21:02, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

--The article implies that revenue is generated by commercials (that can't be skipped), so there is no real need to add more info.Scottrandall (talk) 13:01, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
