Title: Game Show "Channels" On Roku,...Etc... Thread.
Post by: TimK2003 on July 02, 2021, 10:04:17 PM
Might as well start an official thread for new apps/channels found on Rokus/Fire Sticks/AppleTVs that either rerun game shows or have individual "channels" devoted to a single game show, as I seem to stumble across new ones every so often.

On (at least) Roku, there is a Local Now channel you can add, that has a channel devoted entirely to "Funny You Should Ask" reruns.  Not surprising as it looks like Byron Allen's TV empire may have a hand in this channel.

(I know, it may be about as far down the bottom of the barrel as you can get for the lather, rinse, repeat shows), but I have a feeling we may see more of these "channels" appear in the future...hence the new thread).

Great idea, Tim! Below is a list of game show reruns found on some streaming channels as of July 2, 2021. Of course, feel free to add
any additional shows or channels that I'm missing.

Netflix
--Jeopardy!
--Wheel of Fortune

Roku
--Deal or No Deal (Synd.)
--Weakest Link (Synd.)
--Celebrity Name Game
--On The Cover

Tubi
--Beat Shazam
--25 Words or Less
--Name That Tune (Lange & Krakowski)
--Take A Good Look

Amazon Prime
--13 titles from the Buzzr archives (Family Feud, Press Your Luck, Trebek's Double Dare, et al.)

*They used to have the network version of 5th Grader, but it was recently pulled. Odd considering doesn't Amazon own the rights to that show now?

Pluto TV: Buzzr, TPIR Barker Era, and DOND.

("American Gladiators" too, if you consider that a game show)

Pluto also has Game Show Central, streaming various GSN originals including Baggage, America Says, Lingo (Engvall version only, sadly), 1 vs. 100 and Minute To Win It. The only pre-2009 show I've seen on the channel is Cram in the early morning hours.

Amazon Prime also has two seasons of Pointless Celebrities available for viewing, as well as every episode of Million Dollar Money Drop (a very random show to be offered).

Britbox has episodes of civilian Pointless, but unsure which seasons are available.

Looking through the Pluto TV listings, it appears the Tween channel shows old Nick games like Hidden Temple and Figure It Out. They also show 5th Grader, but unsure which version.

Sony Canal Escape Perfecto is on Pluto. Airs episodes from S01-02 of the Mexican version.

Sony Canal Competencias, which is a different feed, is on Plex, Xumo, et al. (but not on Pluto). Every time I've checked, it's showing Escape Perfecto Mexico, but on a different schedule from Sony Canal Escape Perfecto. Its webpage, however, claims that it also airs the Chilean version of Russian Roulette ("Ruleta Rusa"), but I've never seen it come up ... and the channel schedules I've seen so far don't list individual program titles.

Been that way as long as the 1973 episodes have been on offer, as far as I could tell (they've got Pilot A designated as "Episode 000").

It does. Local Now started as a Weather Channel spinoff, with local weather, news, sports, traffic & even restaurant review bits based on the viewer’s zip code, mixed in with national news updates & lifestyle videos. They still have the original Local Now channel, but a few months ago they added a Pluto-like streaming service with additional channels. Much of the additional content is from Allen Group, but they’ve brought some outside channels on board as well—BUZZR being one of them.

And yeah, Local Now is available on pretty much all the major streaming devices.


Looking through the Pluto TV listings, it appears the Tween channel shows old Nick games like Hidden Temple and Figure It Out. They also show 5th Grader, but unsure which version.
The Cena/Nick version, I’m sure… unless they’ve just signed an agreement to start running Foxworthy’s versions as well.



On another note… Looking at lists like these, as well as their movie offerings, it’s a bit striking that Sony has so many streaming outlets, but nothing for their massive classic game show library. I know they had a few J! eps on Crackle when they owned that service, but nothing to speak of since. I suppose they could always launch their own BUZZR-like streaming channel; but it seems that if they had the appetite to do that, they’d have done so instead of Game Show Central, Escape Perfecto & the like. (It’s one reason that personally I don’t buy into the idea that Sony classics could never in a million years show up on BUZZR—but that’s probably for another discussion.)

And if you're a big fan of the Big Balls, they have the first seasons of the Australian, British, AND Canadian versions of Wipeout!

It was briefly mentioned, but the service Plex (https://www.plex.tv/watch-free-tv/) has Game Show Central, Sony Competencias, and, new as of today, BUZZR.

Plex has probably the best program guide I’ve seen on a free streamer. It goes out an entire week and shows when an episode is new to a channel.

Pluto TV Game Shows showed several episodes of the UK version of "101 Ways to Leave a Game Show" this morning.

Also, Pluto TV's British channel (which primarily shows scripted fare like "Doc Martin" and "Death in Paradise") broadcast a few episodes of "The Almost Impossible Game Show" this morning. First time I've ever seen something resembling a game show on said channel.

Xumo, a Comcast-owned, Pluto-like competitor (that for some reason doesn’t carry BUZZR or any long-locked up classics and thus, doesn’t get much attention here), has launched its own game show channel & on demand section (https://www.xumo.tv/channel/99991640/free-game-show-tv). Among the selections: DOND, 25 Words or Less, the PAX show On the Cover, Gladiators knockoff Knights and Warriors, and the pseudo classic Magic Johnson’s All-Star Slam-N-Jam.

Channel 308 on the Xumo app, or this link:

Escape Perfecto on Sony Canal Competencias (not the same feed as Pluto's Escape Perfecto channel) has gone back all the way to Episode 1, which is airing now in the 4am ET hour and, presumably, will repeat during the day. I've never seen this one posted on YT or elsewhere. Episode 2 follows next.

I've landed in the middle of what appears to be an interesting episode. There are minor differences throughout, and being a couple years older, pre-inflation Mexican prize values appear to be considerably smaller. Only six major prizes, and the jackpot is 500k pesos.

Spoiler: The team in Episode 1 reaches Question 9, doesn't use either lifeline, and crashes out on a wrong answer. Since the Escape Seguro wasn't yet in the game, they leave with nothing.

These early episodes are quite interesting indeed! The producers hadn't yet mastered setting the difficulty of the prize challenges relative to the prizes, and this just happened (which, I think, is Episode 10):
The team went for the car (value only $165k, btw), and the challenge was just balloon inflation, which they completed in only four questions and got the car out of the cage. But they couldn't quit yet because they hadn't reached Question 5 ... which they got wrong, and they left with nothing.

Xumo Game Show TV (308) has what appears to be most/all of UK quiz Impossible both streaming (not 24/7) and on-demand, starting with S01E01.

Edit: Also, Xumo 312 shows Impossible 24/7, but it appears to be only available through TV apps and not on the desktop, so I can't seem to post a link here.

Not sure how long they've been there, but Roku Channel (https://therokuchannel.roku.com/details/caba7a6551b6504e8cf01ebb330f121a/deal-or-no-deal-synd) has up 290 episodes of the syndicated version of Deal or No Deal, which is apparently 10 short of the entire series. Peacock also has some episodes up, but it seems Roku Channel has considerably more.

They've been there since roughly April. One of my friends, a huge fan of DOND, did the legwork and figured out which 10 Roku skipped over.

-9/8/08 double-run, ep #1011: Noble Jackson
-9/10/08, ep #1043: Stacy Fratelli (This one is, however, on Peacock.)
-9/29/08, ep #1076: Monnae Michaell (This one is also on Peacock.)
-7/13-17/09, eps #1166-1170: The entire Lottery Week. GSN never aired this one, nor is it on Peacock, so unless you taped this first-run you're basically out of luck seeing it again.
-10/1/09, ep #2009: Angela Deeb
-1/18/10, ep #2061: Kymoni Roebuck (the episode that is listed as that date is actually 5/7/10, #2060, with Marty Garcia.)
