Retire those boxsets and check out these legal streaming services where you can watch Stargate SG-1 online
Way back in the early 2000s when we first sat glued to the big blue circle, streaming services like Netflix and Hulu didn’t exist. If you wanted to watch a show, you had to wait until it aired on TV or buy the DVD set. Thanks to streaming services now, you can stream almost any show at your convenience (for good or ill, catching it when it aired used to be such a rite of passage in fandom). Streaming services are also great for fans of shows that you slept on the first time ‘round, or shows with so many spin-offs and seasons that keeping on top of them fried your brain.

For example, if you’re a fan of Stargate SG-1 and other sci-fi shows from this era, you can now watch them whenever you want! Even better is that these streaming services are more affordable than buying those old VHS tapes or DVDs.
Here are some of the top legal streaming services where you can watch Stargate SG-1 online… and by the way, we don’t get anything from this – it’s just an honest-to-goodness PSA.
Amazon Prime is a great all-around streaming service, but it really excels at TV shows and sci-fi/fantasy shows. If you’re a sci-fi fan or are nostalgic for the shows from the ‘90s and ‘00s, then you’ll love the selection available on Prime Video. Not all of them are free with Prime Video, but you can buy individual episodes or entire seasons of a wide range of sci-fi shows from the ‘80s, ‘90s, and 2000s: Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Lost in Space, and, of course, Stargate SG-1.
With Amazon’s recent purchase of MGM, it’s a pretty safe bet that Amazon Prime Video will become the permanent home for Stargate SG-1 sooner or later, so a subscription to the service is a pretty safe bet. You can try Amazon Prime free for 30 days. After that, the service costs $13/month for the standard plan. You can also get a 6-month plan at $17/month and an annual plan at $119/year.
In the Stargate SG-1 episode ‘Upgrades’, Daniel, Jack, and Samantha become superheroes proving that absolute power corrupts absolutely.
iTunes and Apple TV+
Stargate SG-1 isn’t currently included with Apple TV+ as they’ve been slow to license content, but if that changes you can get a family subscription for $4.99 / £4.99 / €4.99 per month. (Why not watch For All Mankind or Foundation while you wait?)
You can buy entire seasons of Stargate SG-1 on Google Play.
How do Jack O’Neill, Daniel Jackson, Samantha Carter, Teal’c, and more Stargate SG-1 stars score on the Myers-Briggs Indicator Test (MBTI)?
Netflix is the most popular streaming service in the world. It has millions of TV shows and films in its library, including a wide selection of sci-fi shows. While Netflix doesn’t have a lot of ‘80s sci-fi shows, it has a ton of ‘90s sci-fi shows and a few 2000s shows. If you love shows like Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Babylon 5, then you’ll find tons of great sci-fi shows on Netflix.
Stargate SG-1 was supposed to be leaving US Netflix in November 2021 but at the time of writing, it’s still available and you can try Netflix free for one month. After that, the service costs $13/month for the standard plan. You can also get a 6-month plan at $13/month and an annual plan at $96/year. Content changes pretty regularly on Netflix, so keep checking.
Canal+ Play (France)
For fans in France, Stargate SG-1 is also available on Canal+ Play, the streaming service operated by Canal+.
From Tron and Tide to Stargate‘s breathtaking transformations, Jeff Kleiser shares his story with Ed Kramer in the second episode of his CGI Fridays podcast.
In addition to the usual suspects, Gaters in Australia can get Stargate SG-1 on Stan, which is the streaming service operated by Nine Entertainment Co. (which also operates the Channel Nine TV network).
Stargate fans in the UK can stream all 10 seasons of Stargate SG-1 on NOW, launched as Now TV by Sky (Sky One actually broadcast Stargate SG-1 the first time around once Channel 4 lost interest).
The Entertainment Pass starts at £9.99/month and allows you to stream shows from Syfy as well, such as Fringe, Quantum Leap, Killjoys, and the original V.
How to Watch Stargate SG-1 for Free Without a Subscription
If you don’t want to pay a monthly subscription to a streaming service, you can also watch Stargate SG-1 online for free. To do so, you have to use a free streaming service, like Tubi TV. All 10 seasons are also streaming for free (with ads) on Pluto TV in some territories.
