Watch Old TV Shows & Classic Clips Online with | Well, Maybe!

TV Land LogoVisit TV Land! No, it’s not some mythical place where old television stars go to spend their retirement. Instead this TV Land is a website dedicated to old and classic TV shows of yesteryear and beyond.

Upon visiting the site, I straight away liked the design with its retro styling and easily accessible channel guide. The problem was, I soon discovered that was about the only thing accessible to me.

I clicked on the ‘Classic Shows’ tab to be presented with a list of classics and originals. The classics featured programmes such as The Brady Bunch, I Love Lucy and MASH. All good so far, so I clicked on Star Trek, one of my favourite TV shows ever.

The show has its own separate page with a nice retro space design. As well as various clips from the show, there are also interactive games, and message boards. Very nice.

But, and it’s a big but, when I tried to click on any of the streaming video clips, I was unfortunately told in a pop up window that “THE VIDEO YOU ARE TRYING TO WATCH CANNOT BE VIEWED FROM YOUR CURRENT COUNTRY OR LOCATION.” And yes, it was all in caps.

So I’m in the UK, and that means I’m not allowed to view anything on this web television station. I’m not a leper you know, just a British guy with a love for all things television, and retro in particular!

So, a nice site design, and I’m sure some of the featured videos are great. Unfortunately if you’re a Johnny Foreigner like me, there’s no way of watching anything on the site. If you have any more luck than I did, let me know by commenting.

    I love watching TV Land. I wish that they would get Trapper John M.D on. It started back in the 80’s . I love to see it on TV Land for a change, like in the afternoon instead of seeing another episode of Leave It To Beaver or another episode of I love lucy. It’s on for only an hour.

    I hear you~
    I have been trying for hours to find clasic TV shows to only end up back at the big letters saying ” CANNOT BE VIEWED FROM YOUR COUNRTY” I’m in Canada for peet sakes. We have all the channels they have in the USA. We share many of the same stations on regular cable let alone satelite. This is suppose to be the world wide web not just for one countries use. Yeesh lighten up and quite with the paranoid delusions of grandure!

    I love your station, but please keep it classic Tv. There are so many great old tv shows you could add to you schedule , instead of the new ones yov’ve added . Designing Women is not classic! I bought this station to see Andy Griffith , Mash ect. I would like to see shows like , Bet your life , The Honymooners , Truth or consequences, something young people haven’t seen , and older people haven’t seen in a long time!Thanks

    Funny, I get the same message from when I try to view any of the clips on there.
    I can’t access any clips on the BBC site either.

    I’m from Ireland now living in the U.S.

    I believe that it’s a licensing issue that prevents the U.K. content beiing made available here.

    show western’s on the weekend and at niight but not the
    same picture after seeing it the day before The stuff that’s
    being shown on early morning should to shown very late
    at night, what a waste of tv time.

    Before paying out more money for costly package of tv
    shows and movies I will shut down cable period.

    T.V. LAND officially SUCKS NOW! Everything they started about is gone. You can watch the shows they are now broadcasting on a dozen other channels if you like those programs?
