In theory this is a sad thing. In practice I never watched Crackle at all.

It wouldn't surprise me if Bell gobbled up all the rights for CraveTV and their specialty channels. Maybe some of it will show up on CTV2, where Bell dumps everything else it doesn't want for the main CTV channel. Never really had much use for Crackle myself. Most of the content looked like stuff Sony couldn't market any other way.

Figures. When it was annouced that Bell had a partnership with Sony for their CTV super-hub, I knew that this would led to this.

Sony Crackle's Latin American service will also shut down in April and Sony is looking for a potential joint-venture partner or buyer for its U.S. operations. (Deadline)

Sony is selling what's left of Crackle U.S. to a new joint venture to be called Crackle Plus and controlled by Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. Sony will receive warrants to purchase stock at various price points. Sony will retain ownership of Crackle’s original content library and license it to the joint venture, so international sales shouldn't be affected. (Deadline)
