Full Answer

Crackle is a completely free service that hosts streaming movies and TV shows. Most videos have short commercial breaks throughout that help pay for the service and keep it free. The Crackle app is free on a variety of gaming consoles and mobile devices, and accounts on each device can be linked to save favorites and preferences.

Hulu also has movies and TV shows, and it has two tiers of account types. The free account has a limited amount of content available, and it can only be viewed on a computer. Hulu Plus, the premium account, has a much wider collection of content, including high definition videos. Hulu Plus also gives access to the mobile and console apps. However, there are commercial breaks on most content.

Netflix is a paid service that has a large selection and no commercials. There are three different tiers of plans that allow more devices used simultaneously and offer higher quality video. Each tier has a month-long free trial for new accounts, so users can test out the service before subscribing.
