A: What is Hulu?

Craving Jeopardy reruns?

You now have two options:

  1. Tune for free to your local Jeopardy broadcast station. The game show will continue showing tournaments from the past year for another month or so until starting its 35th Alex Trebek-hosted season in mid-September. The 2017-2018 “College Championship” starts rerunning today, August 13.
  2. If you’re a Hulu subscriber, stream your choice of 60 classic episodes from seasons 29 through 31. The selections include two “Tournament of Champions,” a “College Championship,” a “Kids Week,” and 2014’s “Battle of the Decades,” which celebrated the show’s 30th anniversary. Needless to say, the latter tourney featured breakout champ Ken Jennings.

Minus over-the-air commercials, each Jeopardy episode on Hulu clocks in at 20 minutes. In the future, the pay streamer said, it will  be “refreshing its offering of popular episodes.”

You can watch Jeopardy for free every weekday via an antenna attached to your TV set. For the channel and time in your area, visit Jeopardu’s “Find Your Station” page.

Here’s a summary of season 34 (spoiler alert if you’re planning to watch the “College Championship” rerun!):
