Sony’s Crackle entertainment platform is closing its doors in Canada as of June 28th, 2018.

In an announcement on its website, the brand stated: “Thank you to all who have supported and enjoyed our network. Stay connected! Register now to receive exciting updates from Sony pictures.”

Twitter reactions mainly range from confused to indifferent.


Some noted that the Canadian version of Crackle held little of the U.S. version’s value.

The end of Crackle in Canada comes as Bell Media launches two new Crackle-like free, ad-supported video-on-demand (VOD) services called CTV Movies and CTV Vault, which will be part of what it calls a “new CTV digital super-hub.”

Though there was no clear statement from Crackle on why it’s leaving the Canadian market, it seems Canadians will have alternatives, however little they might care.
