The 'SNL' Library Is Coming to Yahoo in September

Yahoo! announced today that they've obtained  rights to the Saturday Night Live archive from 1975 to 2013 and they'll begin streaming sketches from the show's 38-year history in September. All the content currently on Hulu and Netflix, including Netflix's streaming of every episode, will still be available come September under the Yahoo! deal. This is part of a big comedy push Yahoo! is making that also includes offering the excellent original web series Burning Love and First Dates with Toby Harris. Here's the SNL content Yahoo! says they'll be offering:

●        A library of show clips from the 1975/76 – 2012/13 seasons
●        Select SNL musical performances
●        Making-of and behind-the-scenes clips
●        A selection of dress rehearsal clips
●        Yahoo! will also feature current season clips non-exclusively and has distribution rights for all clips outside of the U.S. non-exclusively

    Meh. Those archives of SNL on Netflix/Hulu are worthless as most are cut down to about 15-20 minutes.

    "This content is not available in your region" you ass! Any wonder Australia is one of the highest illegal downloaders in the world. Even the national broadcaster had to rush broadcast Dr Who as it was getting downloaded so much.
