Old Shows/Off Air.


How do I watch the old episodes of NYPD Blue. I found the show and all the episodes, but cannot get the shows to play. Is there some magic solution or button to click to see shows that are no longer on the air but are here on sidereel?

Trouble Watching Show.


I have tried to watch the concluded Showtime TV show " Queer as Folk". However every time I click on the episode to be watched the screen (for the show) shows up as a grey and black diagonally crossed screen. Further more when I click on the screen a white box pops up. I continue to wait for the page to load but nothing happens

how do I watch a show.


I followed directions on how to watch a show and it doesn't seem to work. What does it mean to "Connect with Facebook (or twitter)"? do I have to do that first? I do see any link or video start button anywhere! Help!!

Technical requirements for streaming?.


Hi. Can you tell me if I can watch your programming on an old Macbook? It's an A1181 (2.2 GHz, Intel core duo), circa 2010. Also, at what point are there fees for your service? Thanks.

Hi Dana,
SideReel does not host any video itself, so any streaming content you may find through the site is hosted by an external service/website. Some of these sources may require payment in order to view their content — these will be labeled with a "$" icon.
