Kiss your productivity goodbye: Hulu just bought the rights to the classic '90s sitcom.

Attention, Seinfeld fans: the seminal "show about nothing" will start streaming on Hulu this summer. The company beat out Amazon and Yahoo for the contract, shelling out an estimated $1 million per episode. (Compare that to the $500,000 per episode Netflix reportedly paid for another '90s TV favorite, Friends.)

All 180 episodes will be available sometime in June—which means you'll never again have to wait for syndicated reruns in the middle of the night. It's like a 24/7 Festivus!
