  • Fearless of ticket agents - too hot to be handled!
Background: I messaged Peach a couple of days ago about discovering a legitimate site that broadcasts complimentary TAR episodes and I had heard back that there hasn't been a thread in recent memory providing information on where we can watch un-pirated versions of the show. I thought I'd get the ball rolling by compiling a standard list of our resources for the U.S. version of the show. Feel free to share verifiably legal sites showing international versions as well like the Australian, Canadian, Asian, Ukrainian, Chinese, HaMerotz LaMillion, etc. :tup:

Perhaps it would be nice to know which services allow non-American users as well.

Pluto TV is currently showing only TAR 13-20. It previously had TAR 1-7 but those have been taken out of the rotation.

I am a Hulu user so happy that 30 and 31 are coming to Hulu! Also happy for the Canadian Disney+ users! I feel bad for everyone that uses Amazon Prime as that is a bummer.

I am have a question about Hulu. I just finished my rewatch of season 7 and it takes me to season 8 and it says it, "exp. 8 days". The only seasons that don't say this are 1-3, 5, 7, 23-29. Will the other seasons (minus 30 and 31) be taken off the platform in 8 days or is it just an accident?

Presumably 1-3, 5, 7, 23-29 will stay for now.

It is official, seasons 4, 6, and 8-22 have been taken off of Hulu. Hopefully CBS will do something about this because it is the American version of the show after all. Hopefully CBS will put them on Paramount+ or/and Disney+.

Wondering why it's a range of seasons that are removed instead of just not offering any at all. Why the random spare 5 and 7? ???

Agree it was such a weird thing. Also I checked Paramount+ last night and 32 has been removed and the first episode is up of 33. I guess they combined the first two episodes as it is title "We're Back / It Can't Be That Easy". Also, when watching the premiere on Paramount+ last Wednesday live it said the episode was 2 hours and not two 1 hour episodes so I guess this sense.

Update: Now Paramount+ has split them apart and they are their own episodes now.

Any legitimate ways to watch TAR Israel and TAR Vietnam with English subtitles?

All episodes of TAR Asia should be on Youtube, for now. All episodes of TAR China 1-4 as well, but there are only Chinese subtitles.

I can now report that Apple TV has a season pass and individual episodes for season 33 available for purchase and download. With the changes in ITunes, which is only for Windows, it appears the AppleTV app/service is how one buys season passes for download going forward.
Apparently, there are two versions of the first hour/episode, episode 1 and episode 101. Both are listed as 48 minutes. The second episode is listed as 41 minutes. FWIW.

Edited to add: When it comes to downloading the episodes on a Windows device (Iím using Windows 11 on my two Windows HP notebooks), the ITunes app for a Windows device works as it has in the past.

I just find it mental there is no legal way for me to stream this show, even if I'm willing to pay for it!
