If you have been waiting to enjoy the skits of one of America’s longest running comedy shows, brace yourself to enjoy it on Youtube now. For the first time ever, Saturday Night Live will go live officially on YouTube. An ad-free Saturday Night Live YouTube channel with roughly 2,500 clips from the series’ 38 seasons has been opened up. According to Variety, we expect to have more 2,000 clips will be added soon.
The new YouTube channel, meanwhile, is intended to promote Saturday Night Live‘s syndication deals across the world. And trust me some of us are already sold. (Variety reports that SNL can be found in 170 countries.) The production company is using a startup called Zefr to manage the YouTube channel, and it will run recommendations at the end of clips to spur further viewing. The premier of season 39 of SNL, begins Saturday, September 28th with a number of cast changes. Get ready to giggle.
