Crackle scores exclusive streaming rights to NBCUniversal movies
If you were hoping to catch the big screen reboot of Miami Vice on Netflix, think again. NBCUniversal Television and New Media Distribution, which owns the rights to the film, signed an exclusive three-year deal, giving Crackle exclusive ad-supported streaming rights. In addition to Jamie Foxx’s latest, the arrangement will bring 140 movies including Jarhead and the remake of King Kong. Don’t schedule a marathon just yet, though: films will roll out gradually over the course of the deal. Movie buffs can, however, go ahead and start popping the popcorn — some of the first flicks from the partnership arrive on Crackle today.
