I'm trying to watch a show on SideReel, but I can't figure out how to get the episodes to play. How do I get to a video to watch?

Hi there! Tracking a show means that you're "keeping track" of it, essentially. The series will show up on your profile (aka your "tracker"), where you can mark off which episodes you've watched, view your personal TV calendar, and other fun stuff.
To watch a show, you don't necessarily need to be tracking it. Please refer to the instructions in the official response above and let me know if you're still having trouble.

I've just signed up so I can watch Being Erica - and can't get it to play. What's gone wrong?.


I live in the UK. Is that a problem? Should I cancel my membership and save the frustration?

"the consultant" is listed but does not play.


I assume if it is listed you have the video, true?

Hi John! SideReel simply provides a place for users like you to submit places to watch TV online. We provide listings of shows so that you can keep track of the episodes you've watched, view TV listings, and browse links to watch certain content. Just because a show is listed on our site does not necessarily mean there will be links to watch it.

I followed all the instructions. No use. I think I'll just leave Sidereel. It clearly isn't for people in the uk.

Hi there! Sorry to hear you're having trouble! Make sure you're clicking the "search links" button to view the full list of viewing options that have been submitted for any particular episode, and avoiding any US-limited links, which will be labeled with a US flag.

How can I watch HBO Girls free without having to buy it on iTunes?.


I downloaded SideReel with understanding I could watch HBO Girls for free. Now you say I have to buy it on iTunes for $24.99, I'm sorry, but that's not what I asked for.

Hi Theresa,
Keep in mind that SideReel itself doesn't host any video links – we simply provide a place for users like you to submit and share places to watch episodes online. You can browse the available viewing links for the show you're looking for, True Life, by visiting its show page here: http://sidereel.com/True_Life

Why is this site deceitful?.


I'm rather disappointed with this site, as I found it during a web search on the Gilmore Girls. Your link to the site claimed "watch the glimore girls for free". When I go to your site all it does is send me to sites that charge. I do not appreciate liars. Please explain why your site is so deceitful?
