Clicker – Watch Any Show, At Any Time


Thousands of television shows are uploaded online every day. Finding the one you want to watch, though, isn’t always that simple. Clicker is a website that’s on a mission to change that, by making it easier than ever to find the show you want to watch directly from your home computer. Part search engine, part TV Guide, and part DVR, Clicker works by cataloging all the programs that are broadcasted online and allowing you to view them with the click of a mouse.

Users can discover new programs or find their favorites by searching for shows, browsing new uploads, or checking out Clicker’s recommended videos. Once you’ve found an episode you’re interested in watching, check out the description, categories, and tags for more information before clicking play. Rather than watching videos directly from the Clicker site, you’ll be given an easy-to-understand listing of all the places online where the video is available to watch instantly. After clicking on a source, you’re ready to go.

Once you register as a user, you can create playlists that update automatically whenever new episodes of your favorite shows become available online. Because Clicker currently maintains a catalog of more than 450,000 episodes, you’ll never be left without anything to watch. Rather than searching through multiple video archives, or browsing TV shows on specific networks’ websites, Clicker has become a one-stop shop for anyone looking for a better way to watch their favorite TV shows online.

Practical Uses:

  • Find out instantly when your favorite shows are uploaded online
  • Watch TV shows from anywhere with an internet connection
  • Save time by searching for multiple shows on multiple networks all in one place
  • Discover new shows and search by topic, such as weddings or home improvement

Insider Tips:

  • Sign up to receive alerts when new content becomes available for select shows
  • Check to see the most popular TV shows and episodes at any given time
  • Search for programs by title, category, network, airdate, or popularity
  • Create a Clicker user account by integrating with your Facebook profile

What we liked:

  • Playlist function updates automatically when new episodes have been uploaded
  • Multiple ways to browse or search for shows
  • Clicker gives you links to multiple places to view a specific video online
  • Ability to add your own tags, notes, and information to TV show descriptions

What we didn’t like:

  • Most videos aren’t actually hosted by Clicker, which means you have to click through to another site to watch the shows
