The site will follow the paid subscription models of other popular streaming sites like Netflix and Hulu Plus. But this one’s a little cheaper. For $3.99 a month, NBC says SeeSo will offer a variety of comedy options from licensed series such as Monty Python’s Flying Circus to original material and exclusive content.
In addition, the site will feature original playlists from guests and monthly video recommendations. SeeSo will launch in December for invited beta users and in January for everyone.
From NBCUniversal Executive Evan Shapiro:
Big streaming services have created a paradox of choice — they’re great if you know exactly what to watch, but if you aren’t in the middle of a binge, the search can be near endless. By focusing on a specific yet large niche, and providing a curated experience, we can help viewers find good stuff they might not or cannot find. SeeSo is your neighborhood comedy eatery, with daily specials from a chef you trust.”
Already, SeeSo’s website lists more than 20 original series and specials, including projects from Upright Citizens Brigade, Scott Aukerman, Wyatt Cenac, and Community creator Dan Harmon.
