Uh, be careful what you wish for. There's no way to turn the automatic play feature off. I personally don't like it, and wish I could disable it. On account of it, and my dislike for it, I no longer watch Crackle on my Roku 3. The Roku Stick version is the traditional app, so I use the Stick for Crackle.

I can understand that others might like it, and that's great. For them.

Just curious, how unique is the content on Crackle, if you already subscribe to the other major services (Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, premium networks, etc)?

Do the Crackle original production shows (at least past seasons) eventually show up on Netflix et al?

What about the other (non-original) shows and movies that are on Crackle, are all of them also on other services or are there any unique exlusives?

If we want to prune our channel home screen, how valuable is Crackle? Kinda wish there's an ad-free subscription option...

I have not tried Crackle in a while. Does it now require a login?

Yeah set up an account and a log in now required. Basil is right, the auto play is a PITA too. Frankly on top of these issues since they randomly interrupt the programs with the same old handful of ads, it's not worth now. A separate account and log-in for a free channel is absurd and is only done to target ads, track users etc. That information alone is worth more than anything Craple can offer. Thank goodness for the remove function.
