Sign this petition if you would love to see Seinfeld on an online streaming platform to allow you to binge or simply pick up at a random point in the vast 180 episodes for a quick giggle!


History of Seinfeld & online streaming services: The streaming rights to Seinfeld could easily top over $100 million, or over $500,000 per episode. Sony Pictures, the studio that produced and still owns Seinfeld, has been in negotiations with Hulu, Amazon, and Yahoo for streaming rights to the show and received its first rejection last week from Netflix, despite the fact that Netflix paid a similar amount for Friends, another highly rated NBC sitcom that survives to this day in syndication. The move from Netflix certainly might seem gutsy—because who wouldn’t want exclusive rights to one of the highest-rated sitcoms of all time? Seinfeld could be the star on Netflix’s stellar collection of classic sitcoms, ranging from The Andy Griffith Show and Cheers to both the British and American versions of The Office. With serious competition from established content providers like HBO, Netflix needs such evergreen content if it hopes to be the best streaming service for the aspiring cord-cutter. In fact, considering the rejection letters Seinfeld is likely to continue to receive from other streaming operators—only Amazon might have the money necessary to buy the entire series—Sony might do well to sell a “Greatest Hits” package of episodes.
