Web users in China will now be able to watch “The Simpsons” on Sohu thanks to a licensing deal between the video streaming site and Fox. Rejoice!
The agreement was announced on Monday by Charles Zhang, chairman-CEO of Sohu.com, and Mark Kaner, president of Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution. It will mark the first time that the 25-season-strong (although only the first 10 matter) show will be available officially throughout China.
“The introduction of ‘The Simpsons,’ a household name in the U.S., will further enrich our users’ choice of the best American content when they come to our platform. This deal once again demonstrated our commitment in bringing the best experience to our users and tireless efforts to enhance our competitive edges in the industry,” Zhang said. (Explain “Two Broke Girls”).
“Simpsons” executive producer Al Jean responded: “Woo hoo! Now we can reveal Springfield is actually in Guangdong province.”
GOOD TRY GUYS, we all know Springfield is in Oregon. Maybe.
