Sony brings Crackle.com to Canada

Sony's online video network Crackle.com, originally branded as Grouper before being acquired in 2007, and recently launched in Australia and the United Kingdom, has rolled into Canada and will be available on RogersonDemand, as well as services like YouTube, Boxee and Metacafe.

The site isn't as rich in content as hubs like Hulu--which is unavailable in the Great White North--but it does bring some new content to our northern neighbors including original short form series and full-length traditional programming from Sony Pictures' library of television series and feature films.

Rogers Digital Media will be the ad sales agent for Crackle.com in Canada.

"We deliver the best content, from acclaimed originals to movie favorites, that is selected and programmed with the seasoned viewer in mind," said Eric Berger, senior vice president, digital networks, Sony Pictures Television.

Some of the available content includes: "Samurai X", "Newsradio", "Charlie's Angels", "The Three Stooges Collection", "A Few Good Men", and "Godzilla vs. Magaguirus".

Additionally, Crackle.com says it'll debut a new look in October that will make navigating the site easier.
