NBC has Hulu Plus. ESPN has WatchESPN. HBO is reportedly launching HBOGo next month.

Now a Sony Pictures has entered the fray of media-owners-with-video-streaming-apps, with Crackle, an iOS app that lets you stream full-length videos owned by Sony across your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. For free. The catch is, of course, that an ad runs every few minutes.

To promote the launch, Sony has also inked exclusive content from Electronic Arts: a new Extended Gameplay Trailer for Battlefield 3.

Crackle's catalogue includes over 200 titles from Sony's network of production companies like Sony Pictures Classics, Columbia Pictures, TriStar Pictures, Screen Gems and others. At launch, Crackle offered the following highlights:

• Seinfeld
• Married... With Children
• Samurai X
• Starsky and Hutch

• The Da Vinci Code
• Snatch
• Ghostbusters
• A Few Good Men

Furthermore, Sony said Crackle will only show the uncut, unedited versions of movies, which could be a boon for watching classics like "Dr. Strangelove" or "La Femme Nikita."

The app also contains features like video queue management, sharing content on social networks or email, and video playback. Sony will also add to the library on a regular basis, it said in its app description.
