With TCM being on the unfortunate end of all the cost-cutting streaming has been facing lately, viewers have understandably looked for other places to get their fix of the classics. In a separate article, we listed the streaming alternatives you can turn to for old movies, but here, we've gathered the all places you can watch old TV shows.
The good news is most classic TV can be found on smaller and more affordable sites like freevee (which has Bewitched), Pluto TV (which has All in the Family), Fubo (which has Hogan’s Heroes), and Tubi (which has Columbo). ShoutFactory and The Film Detective also get a special shoutout for streaming niche and hard-to-find TV shows from the past decade. But major streaming services carry many of the oldies too, even though they prioritize newer titles for the most part. Most notably, Paramount+ streams The Twilight Zone and I Love Lucy, Amazon Prime streams The Brady Bunch and The Andy Griffith Show, Max streams The Nanny and The West Wing, and Hulu streams Cheers, The Golden Girls, and M*A*S*H*.
From sitcoms to dramas and everything in between, these services are the best places to watch old TV shows.
