New FAST channels coming to Redbox’s free streaming service from Fremantle include:

  • BUZZR – BUZZR is a pop culture time capsule – an unending celebration where viewers can play along to some of Fremantle’s vast portfolio of more than 40,000 iconic game show episodes, which are shown around the clock. Featured titles include Match Game, where host Gene Rayburn is the ringmaster to a mad-capped panel of celebrity guests; Whew!, a limited-run quiz show hosted by the late Tom Kennedy featuring a wacky bonus round known as, the “Gauntlet of Villains”; as well as famed titles Family Feud, To Tell the TruthPasswordPress Your LuckBlockbusters and Card Sharks.
  • The Price Is Right: The Barker Era – Celebrating one of the most iconic names in game show history, Bob Barker, this channel brings him back for fans and introduces him to a whole new generation. Having spent 35 years as the host of television’s longest running game show, Barker was the recipient of 19 Daytime Emmy Awards and also received an Emmy Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1999. The Price Is Right: The Barker Era broadcasts hundreds of episodes from the 80’s all hosted by Barker. These game show gems have not been on television since their original air date – nearly 40 years ago.
  • Baywatch – If you’re looking for action, excitement, and running in slow motion, Baywatch is always here, 24 hours a day. The Baywatch channel features the first 5 seasons, with new seasons switching in every quarter, including “Baywatch: Hawaii.”

Redbox has aggressively scaled its ad-supported video on demand (AVOD) streaming service to include thousands of popular films and television series in the past year while also growing to more than 120 FAST Channels available on its streaming app, with plans to add more in the coming months.
