Crackle & BBC iPlayer


If you are looking for a decent series that you can watch but have budget, then the streaming service from Sony Crackle can offer a solution. Crackle is free, but is supported by advertisements. The offer for the service can vary per month, but there is always something decent to see. In any case, the price will not be an obstacle. The only drawback is that Crackle is only active in the United States, so a Crackle VPN is a must. However, these entry costs are much lower than the average subscription to a streaming service. With regard to the original productions, Crackle is a bit behind the competition, but the full range is fine.

Recommended series: chosen, grabbing, comedy in cars getting coffee, the oath, super mansion, startup, grabbing, married with children, rake, Seinfeld, the shield, terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles.


– free with advertisements (VPN required)

BBC iPlayer

Not all great series are American. The British have also produced a number of excellent series in recent years. The focus of this series and the complete range differ in all respects from what you see in the US. Maybe that makes them especially valuable. Of course the BBC is responsible for amazing natural series such as Planet Earth and Blue Planet, which you naturally encounter on this platform. You will also find beautiful comedies such as Miranda, the so popular Dr. Who and the top class series from Louis Theroux on the iPlayer. Moreover, the most popular British soaps such as Eastenders are naturally well represented.

The budgets may be slightly smaller, but the iPlayer contains more than enough interesting series for an evening marathon television. The best part is definitely the price. Since the BBC is a public broadcaster, the use of its service is free. The BBC uses geo-blocking, so a VPN is required for BBC iPlayer.

Recommended series: Dynasties, Blue Planet, Dr. Ing. Who, Louis Theroux’s Altered States, Eastenders, Miranda, Strictly Come Dancing, QI, Clique, The Little Drummer Girl, The Night Manager, Fleabag.
