A two-day marathon of some of Stargate SG-1‘s best episodes is coming to Roku this weekend, May 2 and 3.
Roku’s free, on-demand video streaming service is available online and via the more than 40 million compatible devices in U.S. homes. (The company reported 39.8 million active accounts as of the end of March.)
From what we can tell, though, fans should not need to own a Roku device to enjoy the marathon. The Roku Channel streaming service offers a wide range of TV and films available on the Web site without a Roku device — and, in some cases, even without logging in to a free account. (The service also offers paid add-ons for premium channels.)
The Roku Channel also launched in Canada in 2019 and in the U.K. just last month — so hopefully the marathon will be available on both sides of the pond. The service touts no subscriptions, fees or logins required to access content.
While we don’t know which episodes will be included in the marathon just yet, MGM does say that it will feature fan favorites from all ten seasons of the show.
Stargate SG-1 ran for five seasons on Showtime from 1997 to 2002, and another five seasons on SCI FI Channel (now Syfy) from 2002 to 2007.
