How to watch Jeopardy! online for free
Jeopardy! is a syndicated program, which means the show airs wherever local channels have rights to each episode. Put simply, Jeopardy! fans can expect channels and airtimes to vary by location, so it’s a good idea to visit jeopardy.com/watch to search when and where Jeopardy! is airing near you.
Whether Jeopardy! is airing on your local CBS, NBC, or ABC affiliate, you have options to stream online for free. Most viewers should be able to successfully stream Jeopardy! on one of the live channels offered through fuboTV or Sling TV, which both offer 7-day free trials for new subscribers. Just make sure to cancel your subscription before your free trial is up to avoid subscription fees. Should you choose to continue your service, however, fuboTV offers subscriptions starting at $64.99 a month, whereas Sling TV‘s Blue Service Tier starts at $35 per month.
If Jeopardy! streams on your local CBS channel, be sure to sign up for fuboTV, as Sling does not currently carry local CBS channels. Alternatively, viewers watching Jeopardy! on CBS can stream the show live on CBS’s new streaming service, Paramount+. The service, which normally starts at $5.99 a month for a limited commercial plan and $9.99 for no ads, will allow you to stream shows live from your local CBS channel and any other originals and exclusive content for free for 7 days if you’re new to the platform.
