The Simpsons, the longest running animated series of all time landed one of the biggest syndication deals, a nine-figure deal for 530 episodes..
FXX, FX’s new spinoff network will become the cable network home for all seasons of The Simpsons, beginning in August of 2014. FXNOW, the soon to be launched mobile viewing app of FX Networks will be the exclusive non-linear home for all seasons of The Simpsons, excluding seasons airing in their first run on FOX.
This deal pretty much guarantees if your a Netflix or Hulu user you won’t be streaming the Simpsons anytime soon. FXX and FXNOW will get subsequent seasons of The Simpsons as new seasons begin their first run on FOX.
