‘Seinfeld’ Being Shopped for Online Streaming Deal (Report)

Hulu, Amazon and Yahoo said to be vying for rights to iconic sitcom

“Seinfeld” could be streaming all over the place for everyone to see soon — not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Sony Pictures Television is reportedly shopping the iconic comedy to several companies for online streaming, with Hulu, Amazon and Yahoo said to be among the contenders, according to the Wall Street Journal.

One company that isn’t in the mix is Netlflix, which has decided not to pursue streaming rights to the show. (Was that wrong? Should they not have done that?)

Whoever ends up streaming “Seinfeld” online had better have deep pockets — according to the Journal’s insiders, the show, which originally aired on NBC from 1989 to 1998, could command a sum of more than $500,000 per episode.

Sony Pictures Television had no comment for TheWrap, though SPTV president Steve Mosko recently talked about the company’s interest in streaming services.

At a February panel titled The New Era of TV, Mosko referenced the growing business of fellow speak Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix.

“If you make good content, good things will happen… [and] we want you guys to keep growing so we can sell great things to to you,” Mosko said.
