Ah Seinfeld. The beloved sitcom about “nothing” that you could only watch at 7:00 or 11:00 PM on that channel you never go to. Well, say goodbye to Newman and get comfortable, because that’s about to change!
Beloved content streamer Hulu just announced that they will be the exclusive carrier of all nine seasons of Seinfeld, and they’ll be bringing it to a computer or streaming capable device near you. Hulu clarified that they will be running “full-length NBC versions of the show,” not re-edited versions that were put together for re-runs.
Seinfeld was on hand to deliver the news
He gushed about the properly-formatted episodes: “now you will see the full thing as Larry [David] and I cut it.” He also stated that having kids, he felt that this was the best way to get them to watch the show. Never not ready with a joke, Seinfeld quipped “You could have put the DVD in, but I guess nobody wanted to do that.“
Oh really Seinfeld, are you sure that’s it? The deal was reportedly put together for about $1 million an episode, for anywhere between $130-$180 million. Seinfeld and Larry David are rights profit participants.
Hulu is aggresively picking up content, with some outlets speculating (rightfully so) that they are competing with Netflix and their recent pick-up of Friends. Hulu is also about to become the home for all future AMC shows, like the upcoming Walking Dead spinoff – Fear the Walking Dead.
So serenity now! Get on Hulu, and Seinfeld (and other great upcoming shows!) will be accessible to you 24/7 and on demand. Make sure to leave a voicemail so your family and friends know where you are.
