Watch TV shows for free with Couch Tuner

If you love watching TV after a long day at work or as a means to relax and unwind, we recommend Couch Tuner (couchtuner.eu), a site that allows you to stream TV shows and videos for free. The site is easy to use and most devices are compatible and will play back videos of your choice to watch.

How to use the site

Simply go to the website, couchtuner.eu and choose from a list of TV shows that are displayed. Once you choose a TV show for streaming, click on it. It will take you to a page where you can see 'Download' or 'Play it Now.' Don’t click on these options or the 'Watch It' link as they will take you to another page where the movie is supposed to be downloaded and streamed. Once this is done, the screen will ask you to register on the site and pay a fee before you can watch the movie. These are just ads that are pretty annoying.

Instead, look for ‘Watch it here’ in yellow at the bottom of the synopsis of the show. Click on the title of the episode and start watching. If you do not succeed to get it to play on your device, you can try another computer, laptop or tablet.

There are also helpful tips provided such as how to refresh and play videos and troubleshoot common errors that show up preventing you from opening or loading a video file. If it does not work, then you can choose a different player in the tabs menu.

  • Disadvantages

Although Couch Tuner is free to watch, there are certain cons which you have to endure. You get tons of ads all around the screen. If you are not careful with your mouse, you can have many windows open all asking you to register and pay a fee before you can watch. Others also complain of ads that won’t go away from the screen while streaming a TV show. In other cases, mature images are flashed which are often uncomfortable and annoying to say the least.

Is it legal?

Couch Tuner has a disclaimer on its site freeing it from any liability in regards to copyrighted materials and their legality. It is not hosting these TV shows but instead provide the links where you can watch them. Unfortunately, the redirects are often just there to make you click on site ads and according to many users, there are plenty of virus infected pages on these active links.
