For now, however, Sony and Pluto also aren’t saying how deep into the vaults they’ll be reaching.
Jeopardy! I could see going pretty deep, especially given the Crackle and Netflix packages. I'd also love to see the spinoffs, though I realize that's a bit less likely.

Wheel, though...I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised but, given precedent, preparing to be disappointed.

Thirded, though I wouldn't boo stuff like Seasons 5-12 or the Goen era either (and I know the latter is unlikely but still).

While I realize that for a nearly 40-year-old game show, "vintage" could mean 2002*, I'll give them benefit of the doubt. I say that realizing Crackle's put up some pretty obscure Sony shows, and I think they realize people would get a kick out of the ceramic Dalmatian the same way they do Trebek's pornstache or Barker with dark hair.

Enjoy lots and lots of backstage TPIR photos and other fun stuff here. And yes, I did park in Syd Vinnedge's parking spot at CBS

http://www.gameshowforum.org/index.php/topic,32598.msg384517.html#msg384517 - Shortly after the classic TPiR channel launched on Pluto TV, I wanted to see a classic J! channel, as I posted in this thread. XD

I just saw an ad for the Wheel and J! channels on Pluto.  The J! footage appeared to be from Ken Jennings' run, 2003-04 or 2004-05.  The channel is specifically branded as Jeopardy with Alex Trebek.  Sorry for those anticipating seeing Dr. Oz host.  Wheel was pre-Million Dollar Wedge, so...pre-2010?  A contestant picked up a $10,000 wedge that didn't look like a Mystery wedge.

And as I typed this, another ad throws some monkey wrenches into the above speculation regarding Jeopardy.  Audio and video of older Trebek was used.  The 2nd ad also had Brad Rutter winning $1,000,000.  No older (pre-HD) footage from Wheel was shown.

ETA:  Someone has pinned the Wheel footage to 2017.

Based on this, I have a feeling I'll be a viewer. This sounds like it'll be episodes from my childhood/teenage years. If any 90s sneaks in, I'll be very pleased.

I spotted a red glitter J! board in the promo, so I’m guessing S1 shows up at some point.

Now you no longer have to wait for your favorite Pluto show to go to a commercial to see the spots for yourself.
