UPDATE: The Stargate Channel is now streaming on Pluto TV at channel 152 (and on demand) in the United States. Despite the company’s announcement of only certain seasons, the three series launched with all 17 seasons available.
Thus far we have only confirmed that the Stargate Channel is available in the U.S. We have reached out to Pluto TV for comment on whether the shows and movies are restricted to this region.
The original story follows.
There’s a brand new way to watch Stargate starting this Friday. Pluto TV is giving Stargate its own 24/7 dedicated channel, beginning on April 1, 2022.
The Stargate Channel will stream the original “Stargate” feature film, the two SG-1 movies, plus selected seasons from the three live-action television shows.
Pluto TV is an Internet television service available in 25 countries, including the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and throughout Europe and Latin America. Because shows here run continuously on the hour (rather than on demand) the service hearkens back to the old channel-surfing days. The service is entirely ad-supported, so expect commercials — meaning Pluto is available for free in select countries, and without the need to create and manage an account before accessing the full array of classic shows and movies.
Starting April 1, 2022, the Stargate Channel will be continuously streaming:
- Stargate the Movie (1994)
- Stargate SG-1 Seasons 1–5 (1997-2002)
- Stargate Atlantis Seasons 1–2 (2004-2006)
- Stargate Universe Seasons 1–2 (2009-2011)
- Stargate: The Ark of Truth (2008)
- Stargate: Continuum (2008)
By our count that’s 196 hours of Stargate at launch, covering more than half of the 375-hour franchise. To watch it all you’ll need to load up on caffeine and snacks and binge for a little over 8 days straight.
Pluto TV hasn’t said what order they’ll be running things in. But most shows and movies also look to be available in the On Demand section if you are in the mood for something specific.
Along with channels dedicated to a genre (like science fiction) or an era (like “80s Rewind”), the Stargate Channel joins other franchise-specific channels running 24/7 on Pluto TV — including Star Trek, classic Doctor Who, CSI, Beverly Hills: 90210, and more.
Pluto TV launched in 2013 and was acquired by Viacom in 2019. The Internet television service boasts 50 million global viewers and more than 150,000 hours of content.
Ad-supported episodes stream continuously throughout the day, so check the Pluto schedule to see when a particular episode will be coming up next — or just call it up in the On Demand section. Look for the Pluto TV app for your smart TV or mobile device, via Verizon FiOS, Cox, on Xbox and Playstation consoles, or find the service online for free at Pluto.TV.
