NBCUniversal Digital Enterprises today unveiled Seeso, a new streaming comedy channel, the first of its kind offering from NBCUniversal.

Set to debut in January 2016, the ad-free subscription service will be available at and on streaming platforms, connected devices and other distribution partners for $3.99 per month.

The streaming channel will offer a variety of SVOD innovations, including an autoplay function.  Additionally, a ‘hunt while you watch’ function will allow viewers to continue watching while they look for what to watch next.

“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,” comments Evan Shapiro, Executive Vice President of NBCUniversal Digital Enterprises.  “By focusing on a specific, yet large niche, and providing a curated experience, we can help viewsers find good stuff they might not or cannot find. Seeso is your neighborhood comedy eatery, with daily specials from a chef you trust.”
