    Can anyone get Jerry Seinfeld's 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' to play in Crackle on the Apple TV? Everything else on Crackle will play except for this show. It works on the iPad but not the AppleTV. I'm baffled.

    Crackle: Comedians….

    Yes, it worked fine on my ATV2 (not jailbroken). I did have to sign up on Crackle's web site and sign in on the ATV.

    Hmm. Are you in the USA or Canada or elsewhere?

    I'm in Canada, but like I said, it works on my iPad so I don't think it's a geo-restricted issue. Over at the Crackle forums, there are many complaints about Seinfeld's Crack series not playing on Roku's, but nothing about Apple TVs.

    Weird. Maybe I'll try power-cycling the Apple TV to see if that makes a difference.

    Hi ldgit, any luck? I'm having the same problem. I watched an episode on ATV a few days ago, but since then no episode will load. I can watch other shows on crackle though. I haven't tried watching on the ipad. I'm also in Canada, on Rogers.

    I haven't tried this great show thru my AppleTV yet, but I love this show! My favorite episode so far being the one with Brian Regan as guest ( "...I think I'd rather be workin'!" ) I'll have to give it a try when I get home tonight.

    :D :D :D :D

    I can watch the oldest episodes on the Apple TV and any of the trailers for the show, but the most recent episodes from season 3 and season 2 won't play, except on the iPad (at least there's Airplay).

    Normally, I would think it's a geographical licensing thing but then I would expect it not to play on the iPad, as well. Very strange.

    I tried CICGC tonight on Crackle and it worked fine for me. My Netflix wasnt working on my AppleTV, but it was on my iPad, so I "restarted" my AppleTV ( there is a restart under settings ), and then it worked fine. I was able to finish the movie The Score, which was a great movie with Robert DeNiro and Edward Norton.

    :) :) :) :)

    Didn't work for me, but it worked on the iPhone app so I watched it via airplay. Weird.

    I tried it on Plex with the Crackle plugin and it works fine, so it seems the problem is restricted to the Crackle app for the Apple TV.
