One of the most common questions we get through our contact page (and in comments) here on British Legends is:
“Where can I watch Only Fools & Horses online for free?”
It used to be really easy to watch episodes of Only Fools & Horses online. There were a number of Facebook pages that had just about every single episode of the show – including Christmas specials, feature lengths, and rare clips – uploaded, and you could watch them directly from Facebook.
However, the BBC has started to crack down on uploaded versions of Only Fools & Horses. Not only is it now difficult to watch online for free on Facebook, it is also just about impossible to find episodes of the show on YouTube as well (in fact YouTube has always been a bit trickier for finding “hooky” versions of TV shows).
If you’re in the UK, then there may be some Only Fools & Horses clips available on the BBC iPlayer website. However, the back catalog is fairly terrible with a lot of content missing.
This leaves the humble OFAH fan with one of three options:
- Buy the DVDs or digital episodes
- Wait until the episode you want to watch screens on TV as a re-run
- Watch Only Fools & Horses on one of those “TV locker” websites – most of which are a scam
Lucky for you, the team here at British Legends have trawled through the Internet to find a site where you can genuinely watch OFAH for free. Well actually, in fact, this site/web page claims to be the “ultimate guide to watching Only Fools & Horses online”.
It doesn’t host any of the videos itself. But what the site does do is provide very accurate links to places where you can go and watch episodes of the show. The links included on the page are updated on a regular basis so that you don’t need to spend ages trawling through different ones to find what works.
Each link also has a little commentary, explaining how many ads there are, what the site works like on mobile, what the video quality is like etc.
