Hi Sandy! Make sure you're clicking the 'search links' button for the episode you're looking for in order to browse the full list of links that are available. SideReel doesn't host any video content itself, so the viewing links you find on the site are all from external video hosts.

Expat Resident in China.


I live in China. If I sign up, may I watch my favorite TV shows like Game of Thrones in China?

Also, old shows like The Borgias, Sopranos, The Wire, etc.
Do you have a film library as well?

Thanks - Prof. William Lee, Esq.

Hi there,
The ability to stream episode content internationally really depends on the show and the links that are available. Please refer to the instructions above regarding how to browse the viewing links for each show.

I'm trying to watch old episodes of Millennium, and all the information shows up, but I don't get any links or any way that I can see to watch it. I tried a current TV show just to see if that worked, and it does. This is really frustrating.

Hi Lisa!
As described in the official response, SideReel doesn't host any video content — it simply provides a place for users like you to submit and share places to watch TV online. Sometimes older shows or series that aren’t as popular online just won't have much or any online video content for users to add to the SideReel page.

I can't get shows to play???.


On my laptop and within the app, I don't see how to watch a show. I'm clicking on everything I can and I get boxes with lines across and a circle in the middle. I'm fairly technical but maybe I'm missing something? Is it possible a show on here is not able to be viewed??

Videos gone.


It seems I can't watch anything on your site because all the video's are showing a black square with your logo on it. So nothing happens when I click.

Peaky Blinders.


I can't seem to get any episodes of this show to play. I have followed the instructions but I never get an arrow to press for "play". Just back to the episode list or up to the main screen again and again. Can you help?
