Fans of Seinfeld are celebrating like it is Festivus. The entire episode library of Seinfeld is now streaming on Hulu. Hulu CEO, Mike Hopkins, believes that the show about nothing can help Hulu attract new customers and expose the newer generation to classic 90s comedy.
“We think it’s a one-of-a-kind property. There aren’t too many shows that have a puffy shirt in the Smithsonian, for example. We believe that we’re going to be able to introduce ‘Seinfeld’ to a whole new young audience that’s here at Hulu. We also think that Seinfeld will help us attract a new audience to Hulu.”
Hulu has also gone the extra mile in order to give Seinfeld fans a once in a lifetime experience. Hulu has built a replica of Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment from the TV show. It’s real, and it’s spectacular. The apartment in New York City is going to be open from June 24 to June 28. Fans can visit the apartment and make as many Kramer entrances as they want. Props from the show will also be scattered around the set and fans will be able to relieve some of Seinfeld’s most iconic moments. Fans will even be able to recreate the sexy photo shoot that George did.
The streaming service had to pay more than $150 million for the 180 episode library of Seinfeld.Acquiring the streaming rights to Seinfeld created a bidding war between Amazon, Yahoo, and Netflix. Hulu announced they won the war in April of this year.
Faster than you can say “these pretzels are making me thirsty,” fans took to Twitter to talk about Seinfeld now streaming on Hulu.
Overdosing on Seinfeld the next couple days.
