Do you enjoy watching The Game Show Network for free with its app? We have bad news as starting in April 2023, the free Game Show Network app is going away, and they are directing everyone to cable TV.

In a statement posted on the Game Show Networks’ website, they announced this change:

Starting April 1, 2023, Game Show Networks’ streaming app will no longer be available. We know that many of you have enjoyed streaming your favorite game shows. While the app is no longer be accessible, you will still be able to enjoy all of your favorite game shows through your cable providers. Visit to find which channel we’re on using Channel Finder, and if you are looking for a specific game show, you can use our Content Finder Tool.

Thank you for your loyalty and being part of our family.

No word yet on if this will affect the Game Show Central, a sister network that streams for free on Pluto TV, Plex, and the Roku Channel. The Game Show Central feed is different from the Game Show Network but carries some of the same shows.

Increasingly many cable and streaming services have been dropping networks that offer a free stream online. This is resulting in many networks cutting back on free access to their programming. This may be part of why The Game Show Networks’ parent company Sony has decided to end free access to its content. The second issue here is the cost of maintaining the app.

If you want the Game Show Network, the cheapest way right now is to get it with Frndly TV starting at $6.99 a month, and you get access to 40+ other channels.
