Yahoo Gets 38 Years Of Saturday Night LiveBy: Chris Crum - April 25, 2013
Yahoo announced a deal with Broadway Video to feature SNL content on Yahoo properties. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer announced the news herself.
Mayer added in a blog post:
Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker, or Tina Fey as Sarah Palin? As a lifelong Saturday Night Live fan, it is nearly impossible for me to pick my favorite skit. And, 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. Blues Brothers, the Coneheads, Church Chat, Wayne’s World, Coffee Talk, Pat, the Hanukkah Song – the list of tremendous clips goes on and on. Saturday Night Live has pervaded and defined our culture for decades.
That’s a lot of SNL. I wonder what percentage of that is actually funny.
The content will be available across Yahoo’s properties in an unspecified format. It’s not available yet. The company says it will announce when it is. More details will likely emerge at that point.
