Status of Who Do You Think You Are? Episodes Online

The options to access episodes of Who Do You Think You Are? online has changed and now requires the use of Discovery GO and a TV provider.

UPDATE Wednesday April 20th: We received the following information from the Digital Team at TLC:

The rest of the season will be on DiscoveryGO, and users will need a log in to watch, with the exception of Lea Michele’s episode. Lea Michele’s ep will be offered for free on DiscoveryGO and tlc.com.

===========================================

In case you were wondering about the online access to this week’s episode of Who Do You Think You Are? staring singer and actress Katey Sagal, it appears that TLC has now changed the options for accessing the content.

For the Katey Sagal episode, and likely for all future episodes of WDYTYA, you will need to use the DiscoveryGO platform along with access to a TV provider. The Scott Foley and Aisha Tyler episodes are still available for free online but with specific expiration dates (see image above).

I have an inquiry into my contact person at TLC to see if all future episodes of WDYTYA will require the use of the DiscoveryGO platform. Stay tuned!
