BUZZR is throwing a birthday party and the whole country is invited as the retro game show network streams live online for the first time.
BUZZR is celebrating its third year as the nation’s only retro game show network and beginning at midnight tonight, it can be experienced on the web and across multiple viewing devices. For the first time, BUZZR will be available to viewers throughout the country via live stream atwww.BUZZRPlay.com.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating our third anniversary by offering a simulcast of BUZZR on the network’s website for the first time,” said Mark Deetjen, general manager of BUZZR. “BUZZR will be the only game show network available via live stream, and we can’t wait to allow even more of America to experience the very best in vintage game shows. BUZZR has always reached an extremely broad demographic, but this new streaming option will allow us to reach a younger, more tech-savvy audience, looking for content on the go.”
Current hits from the past airing on BUZZR include Match Game with Gene Rayburn, Supermarket Sweep with David Ruprecht, along with other vintage favorites such as Family Feud, Sale of the Century, Card Sharks and Password Plus. With BUZZR streaming their treasure chest of game show content, many of these gems will be seen on the latest tech devices for the first time.
The network is also currently in the midst of hosting its first-ever BUZZR Misspelling Bee – a celebration of National Spelling Bee week.
