Before Hulu and the ability to stream Netflix there was All Media Network’s SideReel. SideReel aggregates links from other websites that host or embed full episodes of TV shows. Yesterday, SideReel iOS was released and the free app lets fans find, track and watch their favorite TV series on iOS devices.
SideReel’s tracker allows fans to mark off episodes of shows that they’ve watched and receive alerts when new episodes of favorite shows are airing on TV. The tracker also features a discovery element, as the deep content library of more than 27,000 shows and 100,000 episodes that SideReel has amassed over the years is easily sortable by genre and user ratings.
“Everyone loves TV. From superfans to casual watchers, everyone has a favorite show they love to watch,” said Laura Murphy, President of All Media Network. “With the huge volume of content across multiple online platforms, it’s hard for busy consumers to discover new shows and keep track of their favorites. SideReel makes it easy for viewers to find and track their TV favorites and points them in the right direction for where to watch.”
SideReel’s reputation as a go-to destination for hard-to-find episodes of shows has helped the site build a loyal social following. The site has more than 13 million monthly unique visitors and over 7 million registered users, and SideReel has over 1.3 million Facebook likes and 34,000 Twitter followers.
