'The Simpsons' Streaming Service That Lets Fans Watch Every Single Episode Launches Tomorrow
It's time to get your Simpsons binge-watching on. The FX network announced today that they're launching the epic "Simpsons World" streaming service on Tuesday that will allow fans to watch every single Simpsons episode at any time. Yes, you will be able to watch Bart Simpson say, "eat my shorts" or "don't have a cow, man" to your heart's content.
The episodes will be streaming on SimpsonsWorld.com and the FXNOW app available on iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Apple TV, Xbox, and Samsung Smart TVs. In addition to having 25 seasons-worth (552 episodes) on their platforms, they'll also be putting up new episodes a day after they air.
Users will be able to watch all the episodes and a bevy of clips; however, with commercial spots. And if you need help figuring out which episodes to watch first, Simpsons World also categorizes the episodes by popularity.
The folks behind Simpsons World promise interactive features as well. They'll have some up at the launch and will be continuing to roll out more in 2015 with features like "Did You Know" fun facts, featured episode playlists, script details, and advanced clip and episode search functions.
This comes on the heels of FXX debuting back in August a non-stop, 12-day marathon playing every Simpsons episode on the network.
“The Simpsons is one of the greatest shows ever made and our goal was to create a site that pays homage to this classic iconic brand while delivering a rich, personal experience,” FX Networks’ President of Marketing and On-Air Promotions Stephanie Gibbons said in a statement. "Fans will be able to seamlessly move in and out of the deepest digital archive of any TV series online ever."
