NBC launches SeeSo, a comedy streaming service for $4 a month

We've been hearing for a while that NBC was prepping some sort of streaming comedy service -- today it finally took the wraps off. The new service is called SeeSo, and it'll deliver ad-free comedy content to you for just $4 a month. Naturally, NBC will be reaching into its rich library of content, including Saturday Night Live and sitcoms like 30 Rock. But what's more interesting is that it'll also be producing original content for SeeSo, including new shows from Dan Harmon, the insane genius behind Community, and the Upright Citizens Brigade. The service will also house some exclusive content, like Monty Python's Flying Circus and The Kids in the Hall. SeeSo will kick off with a private invite-only beta in December, and it'll be widely available in January.
