The Simpsons Fans, Unite! FXX Announces Online “Simpsons World”

My family is ready with our Apple TV for next month’s The Simpsons excitement.

But wait! There’s more!

Accompanying FXX network’s launch of the first-ever The Simpsons marathon that will be running from August 21 through September 1, the network announced the upcoming “Simpsons World” on their FXNOW website and in apps for iOS, Android, and Xbox, offering each and every last episode to network subscribers.

This is an outstanding gift to the world; over the past several years Fox Networks has been working very hard protecting the copyright for the show, limiting their current streaming service to just a few episodes at the time via Hulu Plus.

Let me tell you what’s really cool about “Simpsons World.” Unlike other online content streaming services, “Simpsons World” will be fully customizable for a unique viewing experience. You can search via characters, guest stars, episode themes, and even your favorite quotes from the series.

Even though I had written last month about contemplating cutting the cord with our cable TV, this is actually part of our family’s motivation for delaying canceling our cable. Please note that you need a participating cable/satellite provider login and password to access FXNOW.

Sound off in the comments if you’re excited about this availability. We want to hear from you Simpsons’ fans!
