For long-running game show The Price Is Right, the price is now free, as in a free, ad-supported streaming-TV channel.

Samsung TV Plus said it has added a FAST channel dedicated to Bob Barker-era The Price is Right episodes to its channel lineup in February. Barker hosted the CBS game show from its 1972 launch until 2007. 

Right now, the channel is featuring episodes from seasons 11 to 14, roughly from 1982 to 1986.

Samsung TV Plus also added a Jamie Oliver channel and a Divorce Court channel.

Jamie Oliver gives viewers a variety of recipes he prepares while standing at home in his kitchen or while having adventures on the road.

The Divorce Court channel features the venerable courtroom show where marital disputes are settled with tears and laughter.

In March, Samsung TV Plus will be adding movies keeping with a Women’s History Month theme.

On Samsung’s Movie Hub, actresses Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, Queen Latifah, Diane Keaton, Katie Holmes and Zoe Saldana are featured.

The FlimRise Free Movies channel will feature a Leading Ladies Marathon with titles including My Other Mother, Madame Bovary, Gang of Roses, Mrs. Dalloway and After the Storm. 

Samsung TV Plus offers 250 channels with news, sports and entertainment programming that are available on Samsung smart TVs, Galaxy devices and the web. ■
