PlutoTV Grabs The Daily Double And Buys A Vowel With 24/7 Jeopardy And Wheel Of Fortune Channels

The game show hub of PlutoTV joins their growing array of daytime channel hubs, like talk shows, courtroom reality TV, food programs, and an entire station dedicated to national treasure “Judge Judy.” If you have a smart TV or any device that allows for streaming, I cannot stress enough how awesome PlutoTV can be. The algorithm can be exhausting, and sometimes it’s nice to just flip on PlutoTV and let their 24/7 livestream tell me what I should sit back and enjoy.

As PlutoTV is a free, ad-supported service, Sony is within its right to license the episodes in a separate deal with subscription-based services, like Netflix, Hulu, or the PlutoTV sister streamer, Paramount+. “Jeopardy!” was on Netflix for quite some time before leaving in August of 2021, and the streamer still boasts 25 episodes of “Wheel of Fortune” for the time being. There are over 7,000 episodes of “Wheel of Fortune” in the catalog, so I can’t imagine anyone is shelling out the big bucks for the rights to all of them. 

Regardless, whatever episodes PlutoTV gets their hands on will surely be worth watching, if only to see the progression of Pat Sajak being unbelievably done with clueless contestants making bad guesses.
