What is The Circle?

In Channel 4’s The Circle, contestants live separately confined to single apartments shared only by cameras watching their every move.

In a game where anyone can be anyone, never meeting one another in person, the only way contestants can communicate with each other is through voice-activated social network The Circle.

Contestants rate each other frequently and unpopular players are blocked.

Ultimately, the most popular player at the end of the series stands to win a cash prize of up to £100,000.

The Circle airs Monday-Friday and Sunday nights on Channel 4.


If you’re not near a TV, you can watch episodes live as they air via the All4 Channel 4 Live Player.

Meanwhile, you can stream episodes and past series from Amazon Prime or from iTunes.
