    According to Variety, tomorrow Hulu will announce that it has won the rights to stream the Seinfeld series. The deal is rumored to be worth nearly 780K per episode. A bonanza for the cast as I'll bet they retained residual rights.
    Earlier rumors had Amazon and Yahoo in the running for the series, and Netflix dropping out, The deal should be announced tomorrow.

    I recently saw Jerry Seinfeld on Letterman. The guy is just naturally funny. What I didn't know is he is Hollywood's richest actor with a net wealth of $820 million.

    Just read that Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld have the residual rights. Around 400 million a year and that's prior to the Hulu deal.

    His series on Crackle, "Comedians in cars getting coffee" is pretty funny and is a must see for all Seinfeld fans.

    Great show. Watched it a lot with my dad growing up. Too bad I don't use hulu anymore. Not a good enough show to justify me paying for another video service.

    @Jonny Kansas , I pay for it just because I'm crazy!

    I pay for Hulu.
    I pay for Netflix
    I pay for Sling TV
    with HBO!
    And I still have to use "other means" to see all the shows I watch, and I don't even watch that much TV. I know, it's doesn't seem like it, but I don't.

    Still, I am a fan of Seinfeild, but for a show that almost 1mil an episode, Hulu better not raise my rate!

    I don't wanna be that guy. Haha! I pay for Netflix & get amazon prime video. Other things, I buy/rent from Google play or watch on demand.

    I do subscribe to HBO as well. Initially for Game of Thrones, but I've found many other shows on the stations in that tier that make it worth it to me.

    I wonder how they pulled that off. I don't think that would be possible today as most of the money, for the networks/studios, is in syndication.

    So both are probably heading to billionaire status. Amazing, but Seinfeld still stands, to me, as the funniest and most brilliantly scripted sitcom we've seen in 30 years. And Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO was almost as good, in some respects better.

    I never could get into "curb", but that's likely because I never watched it from the beginning. Some of the episodes I've seen were funny, but there were times it was on and I changed the channel. Something I never did with the Sein.

    Loved that show, Genius casting.
    I don't use Netflix enough to pay for Hulu too, what's it cost?

    Last time I checked, I think they were both about the same, give or take a dollar or 2. Been a while though.
