Update (5/20 1:30pm): Hulu has announced that it will have the full catalog of Seinfeld available on June 24th.
So what’s the deal with online video streaming? Apparently it’s worth upwards of $180 million, in the case of Seinfeld. According to various reports, that’s how much Hulu is paying to bring every episode of the popular 90’s sitcom to its streaming service. Yada Yada Yada, you know the rest, stream it for $8 a month and you’ll have access to the best show in the history of television, unless you can double dip with a friend and mooch on their subscription then all signs point to yes!
But if you’d rather skip on the subscription costs and just own the series out right? Well, Amazon offers the entire Seinfeld collection for $65 on DVD – a sponge-worthy deal indeed. At that price, $180 million looks like a pretty big matzo ball hanging out there.
Whether you’re grabbing all 180 episodes at Amazon or jumping on a Hulu Plus subscription, you can rest easy knowing that you’re a 1/3 of the way closer to the trifecta.
