The long-running TV game show "Jeopardy!" is a classic, and beloved by many. If you're like me, just having it playing in the background provides a sense of comfort; it's also fun pretending to be on the show, yelling out answers to an invisible audience.
While the show isn't quite the same since the death of longtime host Alex Trebek (it is now hosted by actor Mayim Bialik or former "Jeopardy!" contestant Ken Jennings), it still provides plenty of nostalgia and fun for the whole family. It's also great for learning trivia and sharpening your knowledge of well, everything.
If you've cut the cord on cable and are looking for alternative ways to keep watching the show, we've done the homework.

Hulu Live offers a one-month free trial so you can decide if the streaming platform is right for you. After that, the cost is $65 a month, with no contract commitment.
- Peacock Premium
With Peacock Premium, watching "Jeopardy" live each weekend is $5 monthly; signing up with the service, owned by Comcast subsidiary NBCUniversal, lets you add as many scheduled shows as you like to a watchlist to see on-demand whenever you want. Another incentive to sign up: All 9,200 episodes of the show are available, offering one-stop shopping for all your "Jeopardy!" streaming needs.
- Sling TV
A cable alternative with access to channels such as NBC, Comedy Central, BET, Syfy, MTV, and TNT, Sling TV has been picking up steam for its relatively cheap pricing options. It also doesn't rope you into a contract. Plans start at $40 monthly (with the first month half-off) and offer perks such as DVR storage and streaming on multiple devices. You can also watch live sports and news on Sling TV.
- YouTube TV
YouTube TV offers more than 100 channels of live and local TV channels with an option to add extra networks for entertainment news, live sports, and more.

Other Ways to Stream 'Jeopardy!':
- If you still prefer to watch shows on TV, a top-rated HD TV antenna for less than $30 on Amazon should do the trick. With a 250-mile range, you should be able to watch stations such as ABC after installation. That means access to "Jeopardy!" and other shows in real time.
- You can also watch free clips of "Jeopardy!" on YouTube, though this approach might frustrate people looking for full shows and being able to follow contestants from one episode to the next.
