UPDATE: As expected, Atlantis Seasons 2 and 4 have been added to Prime. All seasons of all three shows are available to stream in the U.S. as of September 2020. For future updates on Stargate’s streaming availability, check out GateWorld’s Where To Watch page.
The original story follows …
Stargate has made its return to the Amazon Prime Video streaming service in the United States, ending a nearly 8-week drought.
All three shows left the streaming service back in July, leaving plenty of viewers in the lurch in the middle of a rewatch — or, in some cases, their first time watching Stargate.
Now viewers old and new have gotten a reprieve. All 10 seasons of Stargate SG-1, three seasons of Stargate Atlantis, and two seasons of Stargate Universe are back on Prime Video. The catch is that only Atlantis Seasons 1, 3, and 5 are included with Prime, as of today. We’re expecting Seasons 2 and 4 to catch up soon.
If you’re looking to start at the very beginning, the original Stargate feature film is currently available in the U.S. for free on YouTube for a limited time.
Rights on various streamers tend to be fluid, so enjoy these series on Amazon while they last. GateWorld always has the details on each show’s online availability in the U.S. listed on our Where To Watch page.
The Stargate shows are also on Hulu — but with a catch. Amazon has 16:9 widescreen episodes of SG-1, with upscaled video quality. (The show did not begin filming with HD cameras until the eighth season.) For some odd reason Hulu streams 4:3 episodes at 480p standard definition.
Here’s a quick comparison, from Season 4’s “Small Victories”:
The Stargate TV franchise was in continuous production from 1997 to 2010, turning out more than 350 episodes. Today co-creator Brad Wright is working to get a new series on the air — so 2020 is a great time to start your binge!
