Looking for where to watch Turkish Dramas with English subtitles? Here's a list of options.
• Free places to watch Turkish Drama with English subtitles:
- Watch-it - Requires registering. I'm not familiar with it, but format looks easy to use. Link here
-Turkish Masa - Link here (hover over the 'videos' tab at top of page to see selection of series) -Serial4U - **This one now looks suspicious now. Do NOT use unless you are VERY confident you won't download a virus, malware, etc. Link here. Watch for popups! Close pop up window, play video. Repeat numerous times if needed. .
-Dailymotion: Search in a general search engine, but add 'Dailymotion' to the search. Example: "Yargi with English subtitles Dailymotion." To find the next episode on Dailymotion: • Copy the title of the episode you are currently watching. • Paste it into a general search engine search (like Google, not the Dailymotion search). • Change the episode number to the episode you want, and add the word 'Dailymotion'. Ex: Dailymotion title of episode I'm watching now is "Yargi/Judgement - Episode 8 (English Subtitles)." To find episode 9, paste this into a general search: "Yargi/Judgement - Episode 9 (English Subtitles) Dailymotion." Pasting it into the Dailymotion search bar will often not bring up the episode.
-General Search Engine Search - Example: "Yargi with English subtitles." Using different search engines may bring up more options.
-Facebook - Type in the name of the series you are looking for. Example: "Icerde with English subtitles" or "Medcezir episode 1." Be sure it has ALL the episodes!
-YouTube: •Similar search method as Facebook. •Use the YouTube 'filter' option (filters 'button' may be at far right hand of screen) and click on 'subtitles/cc'. That will show you results of captioned/subtitled videos. You can use the same search method to show you 'videos longer than 20 minutes' to eliminate trailers, clips, etc. | • If the captions are in the wrong language, you can auto-translate the subs using this method. (Will not work on phone unless you are using the YT app.) • Check IMDb.com to see how many episodes the series includes and be sure ALL of them are on YouTube and ALL of them have captions/subtitles before beginning to watch.
• Check out my blog post "Turkish Drama Series on YouTube with English Subtitles" for complete Turkish Drama Series with English Subtitles that I found. Double check that ALL the episodes still have English subtitles. Things can change quickly on YouTube.
-Turkish 123, YoTurkish, and WLEXT are free sites. They have a broad selection of series, however, there are risks: New tabs randomly open with ads or porn. (Close the tab and go back to original tab.) Getting the episode to start may require careful navigation of the right thing to click on. But one wrong click can downloaded malware or a computer virus. Also note- these sites offer multiple server options where to watch the episodes should you have trouble getting an episode to play. May be noted as 'options' or links below the video. (See "Additional tips" below to minimize ads)
Additional tips provided by readers:
-Brave Browser is a free web browser you can download. It blocks most of the ads and porn when watching on Yoturkish and Turkish123.
-Chrome Browser pop-up blocker: Be sure you're using the most updated version of Chrome. To block pop-up ads, click three dots on top right corner of Chrome browser page > Settings > Privacy & Security (on left) > Site Settings > (scroll down) Pop-ups and redirects. Tick the box for "Don't allow sites to send pop-ups or use redirects." It doesn't eliminate all pop-ups, but helps a lot.
-Chrome Extension ad blockers: If you're watching on Chrome browser, these may help block ads--particularly on YouTube. Options here.
-Dizimania a free app for Android phones only (find on Google Playstore)
