What is the point of even having an account here if none of the videos of the show I am tracking will even load or play? This is rediculous!!!!

None of the programs that I want o watch will not allow me to..... it defeats the whole purpose of me signing up. Would not recommend to anyone, its a waste of my time

I want to watch the pilot episode of Homicide Hunter online. I click the online link. Nothing. I click anything that looks like it might trigger the streaming episode. Nothing. Google says I can watch episodes on Sidereel. What's going on?

Hi Spencer, SideReel doesn't host videos of episode content, though we do list links for external streaming sources when available.

Hi Jigar, sorry to hear you feel sick. This thread is 5 1/2 years old, and the user experience, along with the site's primary features, have changed a lot over time. Just to be clear, SideReel doesn't host any videos so subtitles are not really in our realm of expertise. If you're having trouble watching something, check out the instructions in the official response.

The episode guide for The Little Couple is located here: http://www.sidereel.com/The_Little_Couple/episodes

If there are links available for the shows, the 'View All Links' button will be available. If it is not, then there are no links available for the episode.

The "black screen with 6 grey dots" you are describing is a placeholder graphic for the episode when there is not a picture for that specific episode available on our site; It is not a video screen. Please follow the directions in the official response to find any available videos.

I live in the UK and I love shows like the real housewives of Beverley hills, Vanderpump rules, catfish and breaking Amish. I have cancelled sky tv as it is getting too expensive and I have got an android box but those shows aren't on. Is there anyway I can watch them on without paying? The cost will add up if I have to pay for each episode individually. Please can you let me know asap by emailing me lacey-phillips@outlook.com
Thank you. Lacey Phillips

after reading above comments including Kendra who would not give a straight answer to why we have to watch it through another site that we have to pay for when SR advertises as watch for free I will be going elsewhere along with everyone else

We're sorry you feel the question was not answered to your satisfaction. Some shows offer free official videos, while others do not. SideReel is a completely free site for tracking your favourite shows. We do not host videos, nor do we govern where official videos are hosted, or whether they are offered for free streaming or not; we merely provide links to the locations where the official video streams are located, free or paid, as available.
