Giddy Up Because All 180 Episodes Of Seinfeld Are Coming To Netflix

There are so many good TV shows and movies out at the minute that you probably wouldn't be able to finish them all before you died.

But that doesn't mean the stuff that was produced a decade or two ago doesn't match up.

While some of the best sit-coms don't have the budget that shows in 2019 do, that doesn't mean they aren't any less funny. And one of the best of the best was the 'Show About Nothing': Seinfeld.

Incredibly, Netflix has managed to wrangle the legendary show off NBC's hands and will add all 180 episodes to it's global platform in two years.

Sony Pictures Television chairman Mike Hopkins said: "Seinfeld is a one-of-a-kind, iconic, culture-defining show.

"Now, 30 years after its premiere, Seinfeld remains centre stage. We're thrilled to be partnering with Netflix to bring this beloved series to current fans and new audiences around the globe."

Netflix has signed a massive deal to secure the show for the five years following 2021, however there is mystery surrounding whether it will go on any longer.

NBC is reported to be launching its own streaming service, which is why shows like Friends and The Office US had to be pulled from Netflix.

Hulu has the rights to Seinfeld in the US and Amazon streams it internationally.

Variety reports that Hulu was paying a cheeky $875,000 per episode. Let that sink in for a second. That equates to around $160 million per year that Hulu was paying to let streamers watch the legendary show.

But Variety adds Hulu's deal runs out in 2021, which is why it was up for grabs for Netflix.
