article imageHulu acquires 'Seinfeld' & secures partnership with AMC Networks

By Can Tran     Apr 30, 2015 in Entertainment
The Hulu streaming service has acquired the exclusive license for "Seinfeld," which will be available starting June. It also has a partnership with AMC Networks.
It's not going to hurt much if you decide to ax your subscription TV service.
There are viable options like Playstation Vue, HBO Now, Viewster, Crackle, Amazon Instant Video, CBS All-Access, Crunchyroll, FUNimation, Netflix, and Hulu. Internet streaming viewers most likely know that Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and Hulu are the three top platforms for media in general.
You may want to weigh the options before deciding to pick a streaming video service, but there are many who choose to subscribe to multiple services because it's still cheaper than cable or satellite.
Netflix has impressive content, but also dominates with original content like House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, and Marvel's Daredevil.
Hulu has the advantage of streaming new episodes of currently airing series after the previous night's broadcast. That means you can catch the latest episodes of Grimm, Blacklist, Arrow, The Flash, Castle, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and more after the previous night's broadcast.
The battle between the streaming services is through original content and exclusive content.
In the case of Hulu, it has acquired the license to stream every episode of Seinfeld at once. If you're a Seinfeld fan, then you can binge watch all episodes on Hulu starting in June.
This is the result of a deal with Sony Pictures Television.
CNN Money reports Amazon and Yahoo had also sought the license to stream Seinfeld, but you can ultimately watch the series in June. It shouldn't be surprising because NBC Universal owns part of Hulu and Seinfeld aired on NBC.
This should put Hulu on equal ground with Netflix, which has the license to stream all episodes of Friends. It doesn't stop with Seinfeld, CNN Money also reports that The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead will also be available on Hulu soon.
This is a partnership between Hulu and AMC Networks, which likely means you can catch the latest episodes of those series.
Seinfeld is still big as it is even after it finished years ago, where The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead are icing on the proverbial cake. When it comes to AMC's content, most of those shows will be leaving Netflix soon because Hulu is investing a lot of money for a long-term partnership.
Engadget reports that Hulu will add content from IFC, BBC America, and Sundance TV.
The partnership with AMC TV would make Hulu a more viable alternative to Sling TV.
Going back to Seinfeld, the deal is between $700K and under $1M an episode.
