Next up on Boxee: Sony Picture's Crackle

logoBoxee is only days away from announcing the details about its upcoming hardware venture, and the good news keeps rolling. Crackle, which is a site I’ve never heard of but is apparently a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment, is the latest video site to be available on Boxee. Actually, this is really good news for Boxee users. Crackle has some great shows.

Okay, maybe not. Here’s the thing. A lot of the shows listed are just 5:00 long minisode’s that have been available on YouTube, and Boxee, for years. The only shows that have full episodes are 80’s and 90’s crap like V.I.P. (3.8 rating on IMDb), S.W.A.T. (6.3 on IMDb), Max Steel (5.3 on IMDb). There are a few gems here like The Tick and News Radio, so I guess I can’t complain about the video site that much because, well, the Crackle brings more free videos to the free Boxee service.
