Eureka Seasons 1-3 Removed from Netflix and Hulu, are Free with Prime

Update 4/27/2017: We’ve been getting more people looking for Eureka on Netflix, so we checked and unfortunately it’s not on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. It’s no longer free with any of the 3. The only options to watch it are to buy it on Amazon Video, buy a DVD , or wait for SyFy to upload a new season. In other words there’s no where good to stream it!

Update 5/19/2015: Dennis writes in the comments that Eureka is no longer free on Amazon Prime. Sorry for the confusion from this outdated information!

We have Amazon Prime and they charged me for watching season 1 ep. 1-4. I thought we did not need to pay but my wife said they charged us for the episodes. You will not get for free Eureka season 1-5 on Amazon Prime.

We previously posted that Seasons 1-4 were in order on Netflix, and that Season 5 had arrived. Well now Netflix has removed seasons 1-3 as of this morning, October 1st. Strangely, when you search for “Eureka” on Hulu, they’ve removed all traces of the show, even with Hulu Plus:

It’s very odd, and we can only assume that either Eureka was only licensed to both companies for a limited time, or they’re planning an exclusive somewhere else later. Or maybe someone paid more for the exclusive right to stream the show…

There is good news!

All episodes of Eureka are up for free on Amazon Instant Video if you have Amazon Prime. (see update above!) Simply go to Amazon to watch them free with Prime, $1.99 each without it, or $2.99 for HD.

Season 1, Season 2, Season 3, Season 4, Season 5

We appreciate you taking our links in to show them that we sent you – even though the episodes are free and they won’t change the price on anything. Thanks!

  1. I am sick! I Got hooked a few weeks ago, watch several episodes a night, and had TWO left in season three I sit down to watch tonight (October 1) and find out they're gone as of this morning! Knowing netflix does this with no apparent warning is a huge turnoff for the service now. The only reason I subscribed was to watch full series of showers I had never seen. Thumbs down!

  2. Netflix needs to update on their page if they are going to suddenly discontinue a series. Had to do a Google search to figure out seasons 1-3 gone suddenly. No interest in 4 & 5 without the history. Would have planned my viewing time differently had I known in advance.

  3. I also was 7 eps away from finishing season 3 and find today that they are all gone from season 1-3. If they had given some warning I wouldn't have taken a week off from watching it on Netflix. Hopefully will be able to tind it else were and season 4 and 5 will still be there when I come back.

  4. A seriously lame move, netflix! How many more of my favorite shows are you going to eliminate in part or in whole? Prime offers Downton Abbey. Maybe it's time to switch…

  5. WHAT THE FUCK DOES NETFLIX THINK THEY'RE FUCKING DOING?!?!?!?!?! I WAS ABOUT TO WATCH SEASON 2 OF THE ANIME SERIES MAGI AND THEN IT JUST FUCKING SHUT DOWN ON ME!!! AND ONCE I GOT BACK ON IT WASN'T FUCKING THERE!!! ALSO THEY DELETED SEASON 1 OF BLACK BUTLER AND OTHERS MORE!!! LIKE OMFG WHY?!?! I CAN UNDERSTAND THEM DELETING SHOWS AND MOVIES, BUT WHY THE SEASONS?!?!?! WHY!!! THIS I CAN NOT HANDLE!!!! GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER NETFLIX! !!!

  6. It's not Netflix's fault. They don't own the rights, they get their content from the rights holders. Those holders decide what they'll let Netflix use and what they won't. If you want to get mad at someone, get mad at the Eureka rights holders. Clearly they made a deal to give exclusive rights to Amazon for the first three seasons. Probably as a test to see if they want to give Amazon exclusive rights to the entire series.

  7. for the ding dongs who dont bother asking, i spoke to one of the moderators of netflix. they are working on bringing back all the seasons, however the reason they lost the first 3 was due to license expireing, they are trying to make a deal with syfy to allow the contined streaming of all the seasons, so dont blame netflix. the moderator plans on emailing me when they plan to bring them back. so dont worry guys they are working hard at bringing it back

  8. We have Amazon Prime and they charged me for watching season 1 ep. 1-4. I thought we did not need to pay but my wife said they charged us for the episodes. You will not get for free Eureka season 1-5 on Amazon Prime.

  9. So first time posting here (I also don't know if this comment thread is defunct technically). As of today they do not have an ETA on the return to Netflix, however the rep I spoke to said that having a few seasons up is a good sign, and that he'd put in a request on my behalf to have the other seasons return. So while they may come back on their own, maybe if enough people put in requests it would help to push the process along.

  10. Any fan of of Eureka will agree that the first few seasons were the most enjoyable. Why even bother keeping the last two seasons? Even new viewers can't get in to the series. Bring back every season or do away with Eureka altogether. As far as Amazon goes, take the series. I'm still not paying for you. (:

  11. So any Netflix TV or movie series/sequential we are watching could be removed from Netflix anytime without notice, forcing us to purchase from AMAZON to finish watching the series. I thought Netflix adds media, TV and movies. I had no idea that Netflix removes media, TV shows and movies.

  12. Fortunately for me I have already watched eureka all of the seasons! I wanted to watch it again but only seasons 4 & 5 were there so I did some looking online & found out they are gone. Not happy to watch just part of the seasons. I like to see them in order. I have been seeing this a lot more on netflix I won't start a show if there is only part of it available!! So please do whatever you have to do to fix this!!

  13. Seasons 1-5 are on Shomi in Canada… there's a one month free trial right now, you can probably work through the first 3 seasons in one month (I personally came close) before switching back to US Netflix for seasons 4 and 5…

    (Hola Unblocker on Chrome for a proxy for US/Canada depending on where you are.)

  14. New to Netflix and am very disappointed with this selection (but have many more to check out), luckily I watched the whole series, unfortunately the first 3 seasons were the hook. I will find it somewhere else.
    I assume a major network (or scifi) bought the rights and are waiting for the right time to air it again (with lots of commercials)!

  15. They new d to put seasons 1-4 non Netflix I liked eureka that was part of reason I actually got netflix the need to get their shit together
