The Price Is Right: The Barker Era streaming channel is getting a batch of “new” episodes from the first season of the longest-running game show in U.S. TV history this November.
Starting tonight November 27, fans can catch 60 fresh episodes of The Price Is Right hosted by Bob Barker, which debuted in 1972. New episodes will air on weeknights starting at 8:00 p.m. ET on November 27 through January 7. Giving you a great opportunity to watch some classic Bob Barker content you may have never seen.
The batch includes episodes 0012-0465, though some episodes will be skipped due to the content (episodes featuring furs) or issues with the source footage, as posted by the channel on Facebook.
Each night, fans can tune in to watch the season that started it all. There will be two episodes on most evenings. On select nights, The Price Is Right: A Tribute to Bob Barker special, hosted by Drew Carey and directed by Adam Sandler, will take the spot of the second episode.
In December 2020, Pluto TV and Fremantle launched a 24/7 free channel dedicated to The Price Is Right. The channel started by airing six episodes daily, beginning with the show’s heyday of the 1980s, adding additional seasons in batches over the next three years.
Barker passed away on August 26 at 99 after a lengthy 35-year career as the host of The Price Is Right. He started on the radio with The Bob Barker Show for six years before becoming the host of Truth or Consequences, another popular game show that ran from 1956 to 1975. He was a cultural icon spanning decades and an enthusiastic animal rights activist working with the United Activists for Animal Rights, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and the Seas Shepherd Conservation Society.
The Price Is Right: The Barker Era channel is available on Pluto TV, The Roku Channel, and Sling Freestream.
