'The Simpsons' Streaming: All 530 Episodes Hit FXNow in AugustKevin Fitzpatrick |
'The Simpsons' has made countless headlines over the last year with its tributes to famed artists, LEGO tie-ins and memorial content, but the biggest story won't hit until late 2014. Following the massive syndication deal struck with FX, all 530 episodes across 24 seasons of the long-running FOX comedy will be made available to stream via FXNow!
Details of the major syndication deal first arrived in November, though the launch of FX's "HBOGo"-esque streaming platform hadn't yet been made official until recently. Of course, like HBOGo, the FXNow app will only available to authenticated, paid-service subscribers of participating cable, satellite and telco providers, among them AT&T U-verse, Cablevision’s Optimum TV, Comcast, Suddenlink and WOW!, with "others slated for 2015."

FXX will also begin airing reruns from the first 24 seasons of the long-running FOX comedy in August , with additional seasons to be added after airing on FOX. That is to say, FXX will begin airing episodes from the current 25th season once FOX has premiered season 26. Viewers can also access FXNow content through FXNetworks.com, apps for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad), Xbox One, Windows 8 desktop and tablet. Additional apps for Android, Xbox 360, Roku and Samsung platforms will arrive in the spring.
Assuming any of that made sense, what say you? Are you exceptionally cromulent that 'The Simpsons' will at long last debut their library for streaming access in August? Will America's favorite family have any other financial concerns, after such a massive streaming deal?
