Coming soon to Yahoo, it’s Saturday Night!
She said: “As a fan, I couldn’t be more excited to announce that we have reached an agreement with Broadway Video to feature Saturday Night Live content exclusively on Yahoo! The partnership gives Yahoo! users exclusive access to the entire 38-year archive of SNL content as well as clips from the current season.”
Fans will get to enjoy classic sketches like “Samurai Delicatessen,” “Wayne’s World,” “More Cowbell” and also skits from recent seasons like SNL Digital Shorts and Stefon. Mayer did not specify a launch date for SNL videos on Yahoo!, but The New York times reports that they will be live as early as September.
The end of SNL on Hulu is a big blow to the video-streaming site despite their earning $695 million in revenue last year. Still, the site faces strong competition from rivals like Netflix and Amazon Instant Video, who are all jockeying for marquee television programs as well as creating their own original programming.
