Chicken Soup For the Soul Launches Free Ad-Supported Streaming Service

Today, Crackle Plus announced the launch of its new female-oriented Chicken Soup for the Soul streaming service coming at the end of this year. The service has launched as a FAST channel ahead of its AVOD launch and is currently available on Plex, FreeCast, and Redbox, with LG Channels, Stirr, XUMO, and on VIZIO’s free streaming service WatchFree in December. 

The Chicken Soup for the Soul streaming service library will be home to the best content in food, weddings, DIY, style, travel and reality, in addition to classic favorites from Drama, True Crime, Thrillers, Comedy and Screen Legends. The service will also feature the award-winning content that Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment has been creating for years for networks like TLC, Discovery Life, Discovery Family, A&E, CBS, The CW and Netflix such as Animal Tales, Hidden Heroes, Vacation Rental Potential, Project Dad and the award-winning series Going From Broke.

“Chicken Soup for the Soul has been the world’s favorite storyteller since 1993, so I’m thrilled that we are continuing to enlighten and entertain our fans, now through TV and films,“ said Amy Newmark, author, editor-in-chief and publisher of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. “Our brand stands for hope, inspiration, and all the best in humanity, and our fans know that when content is brought to them by Chicken Soup for the Soul they will have a great experience.”

“With the addition of Chicken Soup for the Soul to our family of AVOD networks, Crackle Plus expands its audience to millions of primarily female viewers, providing our advertisers and marketing partners a hard-to-reach and underserved audience in the AVOD market,” said Philippe Guelton, president of Crackle Plus. 

The Chicken Soup for the Soul streaming service joins Crackle Plus’ family of free, on-demand offerings including Crackle, Popcornflix and Truli.
