    I have been watching shows on Sidereel for a few years now, because I don’t have a tv. However, I have been having more and more difficulties in being able to watch them with your site because so many of the links are to say the least very sketchy–in fact often my security system warns me that the links are dangerous on a fairly regular basis. Then there are the sites that won’t let you leave unless you click that your really want to leave–a very common trick to make you pick up a virus on your way out. And although I have a powerful computer with a good high speed internet connection, I get stuck with stop start stop start really bad streaming… and those annoying casino and gaming ads that pop up all the time… I could go on. I guess we get what we pay for right? ; ) but really, the quality of sites you host has gone down. Now I’m going to try to get caught up with Mad Men…

    “Here’s the good news: SideReel isn’t going anywhere!”

    And those of us who actually want to WATCH something, without following pointless links, or links to HIGHLY questionable sites, or links to grubby “pay us or else” sites like comcast — we care you’re not going anywhere . . . WHY?!! You offer NOTHING anymore. Why should we care about your so-called “enhancements”, your “TV tracker” (big deal, like that isn’t found on DOZENS of other sites — FOR FREE), or your “original video segments” (yawn).

    Goodbye. I won’t be back until you actually have something to offer besides . . . well, nothing.

    Im confused by the idiotic comments …except for the last one. No one is paying for anything. Links are posted by Sidereel but by individuals, some of whom are scrupulous. I think its great that I can come here and watch many shows that don’t air in Canada and watch them for free.

    I love Sidereel. If I can’t find a good link here, I do have other sites as back up but by and large I can find Sidereel to be one of the best sites for watching shows.

    What happened watched episode box? Annoying to have to go back to show tracker to check box. Also, getting warning that some of the content on tracker page is not secure.

    I am sorry but this is a lame excuse for your alleged enhancements which I doubt will ever come to fruition. Also you need people to want to use your site but without your present links to popular shows there isn’t a demand to use your site. I expect to see this website fail badly now. I loved your site but now have to use other sites now to find all of my favourite shows that are broadcast in the USA. I live in Ireland and many shows don’t appear over here on TV till over a year after they are broadcast in the US. I see no reason for people to use your site and you give no apparent reason why people still should only using the words “enhancements” as a reason which gives me no encouragement at all. Sidereel I am sorry to see you go but anyone watching TV would probably find all the information you give in their local TV section of their newspaper of magazine. Goodbye Sidereel there are now much better sites available than your lame efforts of late for watching TV on the internet.

    To be honest, I like the Tracker.

    And while I don’t understand why all of this copyright bullcrap has to be in place for shows that were broadcast over the air, I do appreciate ANY sites that help me watch TV or Movies because I don’t live in the USA anymore.

    I can’t go to NBC, ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, TNT, SyFy or any other site to watch the freebies like everyone in the USA can do. “This content is not available in your area.”

    What this means for me is that I have to use a number of different sites to accomplish my task of TV viewership.

    Install Firefox and NoScript and you lose about 90% of unwanted casino ads.

    I’m not a big fan of Sidereel’s videos or picks either because I NEVER agree with critics. Critics are people that can’t deliver any goods. They can’t act, perform musically or sing or do anything that they are criticizing.

    Plus, MY opinion counts as much as their opinion does, unless somehow that they have been bestowed with a plaque that says they have more right to be on this planet than anyone else.
