It has been announced by Netflix today that they will be getting the streaming rights to all 180 episodes of Seinfeld.
This is all coming during a time where by 2021, Netflix will have lost both Friends and The Office by that time, so it may look as though the streaming company is trying to get something big on their streaming service to get people to look forward to, as well as nto cancel their subscription with Netflix.
To make it even better, along with all 180 episodes being available to stream, users will also be able to watch them in 4K. The streaming deal with Netflix is supposed to last for five years.

Mike Hopkins, Chairman, Sony Pictures Television, said this about Netflix’s recent acquisition:
“Seinfeld is a one-of-a-kind, iconic, culture-defining show. Now, 30 years after its premiere, Seinfeld remains center stage. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Netflix to bring this beloved series to current fans and new audiences around the globe.”
Right now, users can currently stream Seinfeld on Hulu, where it is now expected to be leaving the service in January 2021, so that it can make a trip to its new home on Netflix.
The streaming market is getting more and more intense now, as Apple TV+ launches on November 1, 2019, Disney+ launching on November 12, 2019 and with HBO Max and NBC making new streaming services that will be launching in 2020, with HBO Max being the exclusive streaming carrier of Friends, which, again, will be leaving Netflix in January 2020.
