    I opened the Crackle app. White text over a blue background read: "We'd like to thank all of you who have enjoyed Crackle on Google TV. Crackle's service on Google TV will no longer operate.

    "Find us for free in Google Play, and enjoy on your TV with Chromecast."

    There is only a link to the Crackle web site, you can use the Chrome browser to access Crackle. If you have side loaded a Crackle app, I would not expect that to work. Be sure you are using the browser with the correct settings, I believe default is correct.

    I just did some further testing - and the Crackle videos only work on my Logitech Revue if I change the user agent to "generic". Using the "default" user agent triggers the message that OP mentioned about Crackle no longer supporting GTV. IMO this is a bit strange because obviously if it still works in "generic" setting then technically there is no reason why it wouldn't work in "default" setting - unless Crackle is blocking it or shut it down. Perhaps this isn't a technical issue but related to some licensing issues?

    Generic it is, not default, that is strange.
