One little tidbit I found this morning in at least the Pluto TV iOS app.

If you visit the On Demand area of the app, and scroll down (quite a bit) to Game Shows, you will see a bunch of content from Game Show Central there.

Sadly, the only early-2000s GSN original that I see in the On Demand section is Friend or Foe - but, there are a ton of episodes available of that and the other originals, too.

Was hoping to see Russian Roulette.

If you have the need to hear Apolo say "EVERY SECOND COUNTS!!" a dozen times in an hour...

I'd rather jab a sharpened #2 pencil through my eardrums, but YMMV.

I tuned in when they were airing the GSN version of 1 Vs. 100...That show was annoying all the way around.

I suppose this "streamer" makes some sense for Game Show Network in the same way that Buzzr makes sense for Fremantle in terms of monetizing existing content that's just sitting around collecting dust, but I can't help wondering if a bit of Buzzr envy somewhat motivated this.

Thatís pretty much it exactly, IMHO. I donít know that Iíd call it envy per se, as much as just wanting their own slice of the pie financially, but I do think this is at least partly motivated by BUZZRís success.

One show Iím surprised isnít there yet is Lingo, considering it was one of GSNís biggest original hits ever. Is there a cross-ownership issue with it? I thought they owned it free & clear.

Game Show Central is now available on The Roku Channel through Roku players.  I'm not sure of the programming selections when compared to the channel's offerings on other streaming services.

Sadly this appears to be US Roku players - no luck up here in Canada.

Even if you donít have a Roku player, you can still watch the Roku Channel on mobile devices with the Roku app & on desktop computer. Roku is pretty much is for streaming devices, though. (You might be able to use a third-party app to stream it to another device, but most of the stuff on Roku Channel is on other free streamers too, so it would probably only be to satisfy your curiosity. Of course, geographical restrictions may apply on all of this.)

In addition to GS Central, the Roku Channel has also added an all-Deal or No Deal stream, for those so inclined.

Strangely, the streams on Pluto and Roku Channel are not identical. As I type, Emogenius is playing on Roku Channel while America Says is playing on Pluto.

That's not really all that uncommon for streaming networks. Not so much for news networks or "real" networks (BUZZR, Stadium, etc). But some online-only networks--i.e., Pet Collective, FailArmy, Lively Place, etc.--run a different stream on the Roku Channel from what they do on Pluto, Xumo, or whatever. Not really sure why, but it's something some of them do.

And speaking of BUZZR... Not sure whether it was a late add or I just missed it, but it has been added to the Roku Channel as well.

I think I've figured out my problem here in Canada.  I get "A" Roku Channel.  Just apparently not "THE" Roku channel.  :D
