'Jeopardy' Will Now Stream on Netflix and Hulu
Producers Sony Pictures Television are making the most (financially) out of Jeopardy.
Netflix announced Monday that it has acquired 45 library episodes of the Alex Trebek-hosted quiz show, which will be available to stream for the first time on the service starting Tuesday. The announcement follows an August deal that Sony Pictures TV made with Hulu for 60 episodes of the syndicated game show.
That pact, Jeopardy's first streaming deal, included curated episodes including a Tournament of Champions, a College Championship, a Kids Week and some of the show's fan-favorite contestants in its rich history.
Sources say Netflix's 45 episodes are a subset of the 60 that are already available on Hulu, meaning those episodes are now available to stream on both rival platforms.
Both the Hulu and Netflix deals are nonexclusive in the U.S., so Amazon executives, if you're reading this, the pool is open and water is warm should you want to jump in, too.
