The Show About Nothing is coming to the digital network now under attack from and available on just about everything. This week Hulu announced that it’d secured exclusive rights to stream Seinfeld.
Hulu made the announcement this week during its 2015 Upfront. Each year television networks give presentations about their upcoming shows and special events for advertisers. Jerry Seinfeld himself joined the network’s executives on stage at the event in New York City to announce the deal. Getting the exclusive rights to Seinfeld is a rare win for Hulu, which is terrific at delivering shows currently airing, but has a pretty paltry back catalog of hits that aren’t already available on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
Hulu says that every single episode of Seinfeld will be available for on-demand streaming through its Hulu Plus subscription service sometime this June. The press release doesn’t mention if it’s a good idea for you to skip directly from the episode about the Soup Nazi to Jerry dropping his girlfriend’s toothbrush in the toilet and not telling her.
Hulu also announced a deal that’ll give its users exclusive on-demand access to new shows from AMC, IFC, BBC America, Sundance TV and WE tv. We’re willing to right off WE tv as a non-starter, but this deal means that only Hulu users will get exclusive on-demand access to shows like that The Walking Dead spin-off that AMC has planned.
Hulu Plus costs $7.99. As you prepare for the epic release of Seinfeld through the Hulu Plus apps on your Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows Phone and Windows PC, we encourage you to check out recording artist Wale’s More About Nothing and Album About Nothing featuring clips from the show and Jerry Seinfeld. Those albums are about the deepest things you’ll hear all year.
