TV Series and Films on Telegram: Telegram is one of the apps that has experienced exponential growth over the years: despite the fierce competition from WhatsApp, it has stood out for the numerous additional and special features that have made it famous and increasingly used (just think of bots, animated stickers, and secret chats).
But one of the features less known to the general public is the integrated player within the app, capable of playing any audio/video format even from URL links without having to download any content and without having to open one of the app players on our device.
In this guide, we will show you how to watch TV series and films on Telegram using the free and legal sources on the web, so that you can immediately check the correct functioning of the integrated player and thus search for other sources to view new content.
TV series and films on Telegram: a complete guide
In order to use the video player integrated into the Telegram app, we will have to make sure that we are using the latest version of the app, which we can download for free for Android devices and for iPhone/iPad.
How to add TV series on Telegram
To be able to watch TV series via telegram, we will take advantage of both the internal player (which we had mentioned in the introduction) and a special chat of the app called Saved messages; this chat is created as a personal chat that only we (from our various devices) can view and within which we can save images, photos and URL links of sites so that we can manage them later.
Using the chat Saved messages we can create our playlist with all the episodes of the favorite TV series without having to open a flood of links every time in the browser.
To add one or more episodes of the favorite TV series on Telegram we open the web browser on our devices, go to the website that has free and legally accessible content, choose a video and press up on the address bar, copy the link using the Copy function, let’s go to Telegram and paste the link in the chat Saved messages, holding down on the text field and using the Paste item.
As soon as we confirm the addition of the link, the preview of the added video will immediately appear (in the next chapter we will show you how to use the player).
If the TV series has multiple episodes let’s add them all in the chat Saved messages, so as to have a well-ordered chronological order.
In fact, we can also create our own “TV series”, aggregating the contents we like by taking them from the web, from the other chats or groups that we frequent on Facebook or on Telegram itself.
How to watch TV series on Telegram
After creating our personal playlist inside the saved messages chat, we tap the Play symbol that will appear in the center of the first episode or episode that we want to watch.
We will see the internal Telegram player appear, able to view the streaming content without even having to open the original website! The player will occupy about half of the space on our player’s screen and will also provide some very interesting options, such as the PIP mode (i.e. a floating window to move freely in other chats or in other apps) and the button to view the video on the screen internal.
The operation is very simple but at the same time effective: after pressing the Play button, the buffering will load (visible as a thin white bar on the bottom of the video) and, after a few seconds, the chosen content will be played.
Obviously we can move anywhere within the video, sliding with the finger on the lower bar (which in fact behaves like a time bar, so that we can send the video back and forth at will).
Analyzing the other items available, we can see the Close item with which to close the video, the Copy button to retrieve the link to be shared in other chats and the Open in button, in case we want to use another player for playback.
Sites where you can watch TV series and films on Telegram
If we do not know where to find the TV series and films to insert and see later on Telegram, below we have collected all the (legal) sources from which you can visit to find interesting content:
Nobody forbids you to search for content even among the groups and channels present on Telegram, but in many cases it is copyrighted material therefore shared on the platform in a completely illegal way.
The addition of the integrated player within Telegram chats is definitely interesting because it allows us to immediately open the video links that our friends share, we can open the video links and the links to the TV series contained within dedicated groups and channels for the purpose and, using the Chat Saved messages, we can also create our personal playlist with the best funny videos or with the videos we want to see at a later time, so as not to have to even fetch them from the history of the web browser or from one of the chats group.
Using this function we will have to pay close attention to the channels and warez groups (really numerous on Telegram): we run the risk of infecting our phone with Bitcoin miners or worse than seeing our compromised chats.
