How to Watch ‘Seinfeld’ and Is the Series on Netflix?
Seinfeld turns 30 years old tomorrow — it premiered on July 5, 1989 — and what better way to celebrate than by binge-watching the show? Get all the details on how to watch Seinfeld ahead.
Is ‘Seinfeld’ on Netflix?
Sorry, Netflix subscribers. The show about nothing isn’t available to stream on Netflix. But don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to watch Seinfeld.
How to watch ‘Seinfeld’
Other options are available to watch Jerry Seinfeld, Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), George Costanza (Jason Alexander), and Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards) get lost in parking garages, talk about whether or not a man is sponge-worthy, and yada, yada, yada.
Those who subscribe to Hulu are in luck because all nine seasons are available on the streaming service.
Hulu bought the streaming rights to all 180 episodes of Seinfeld in 2015, which experts estimated may have been worth nearly $1 million per episode.
It’s certainly a draw for fanatics of the show who may have initially purchased a Hulu subscription simply because Hulu had the entire series.
Watching the series on Hulu is the easiest and most straight-forward option but for those who don’t subscribe to Hulu, episodes are available in other ways.
Where can I watch ‘Seinfeld’ if I don’t have Hulu?
Amazon has episodes of Seinfeld available for purchase as well as entire seasons of the show.
For those who don’t have Hulu or Amazon subscriptions, similarly, YouTube has individual episodes and full seasons for sale.
Pro tip: HowToWatch.com suggests buying the show by season to save on costs. Your bill can be cut almost in half by purchasing full seasons rather than individual episodes.
If purchasing digital episodes or seasons isn’t your thing, the series is available on DVD — but not Blu-ray — at local retailers such as Target, Walmart, and Best Buy. Again, in this instance, it’s cheaper to buy the box set instead of purchasing seasons separately.
Last but not least, Seinfeld reruns are shown on live TV regularly, particularly on TBS. Local TV stations air reruns too so it shouldn’t be too difficult to find Seinfeld on TV at any given time.
TBS is having a Seinfeld marathon in honor of the show’s 30th anniversary called the Bestivus of Seinfeld, as a nod to the Festivus episode of the show. The marathon begins at 6 a.m. EST on July 5, 2019. TBS will air 30 episodes of the show back-to-back.
