A stream of GSN

I'm one of the Neanderthals who still has a complete (or "fat") cable bundle. But if you're tired of cable bills - who isn't? - there are other ways to get GSN, our little game show network.

One funny mistake: the linked article says GSN runs "Card Sharks, Match Game, To Tell the Truth and Press Your Luck." In fact, the network doesn't program TTTT right now, but three out of four ain't bad. Anyway, the article reviews various non-cable options for GSN, including DirecTV, Sling TV and Hulu.

In particular, the article says Hulu offers access to such goodies as Steampunk'd. I can't imagine why anybody would want access to that show, but there's no arguing tastes.

The article doesn't discuss game show oldies diginet Buzzr, but of course it's available free...or almost free. You just have to spring for an antenna to catch the over-the-air signal, assuming Buzzr has a subchannel in your area. Luckily for me, my fat cable bundle from Time Warner or Spectrum or whatever already offers Buzzr. Which does run To Tell the Truth.

  1. I have DirecTv and currently watching Harvey Feud right now. Have to admit, GSN looks so much better in HD. The first 2 and a half years I have had cable GSN was in SD. It looked kind of blurry and not nice looking.

  2. I'd like to point out a few things if you don't mind.

    Like just about any other streaming app provided by a TV network, "GSN NOW" app requires you to login with your TV provider info. If your TV provider isn't listed, etc. Then you can only view the clips from shows I assume, although there weren't any clips to watch when I was on. Logged into a TV provider or not.

    DirecTV's pay streaming service is "DIRECTV NOW" just to clarify. Seems like that offers a lot.

    Just wanted to clarify that.
