Love 'em or hate 'em, you have to admit that Homer, Marge and Bart are official TV icons! "The Simpsons" has dominated the airwaves for over two decades, and now it has a new target in its sights: the Internet. Now, you can watch every episode of the longest-running sitcom of all time right on your computer and other streaming gadgets. That's right, you can watch all 556 episodes (and counting) ny time you want.
Fox already aired every episode during an epic marathon earlier this year. The network's 12-day "Simpsons" spree aired on its FXX channel beginning on Aug. 12.
If you missed out on the chance to see all of your favorites, you can head over to the Simpson's World website to check out any episode you want. You can also stream the episodes with the FXNOW app for Apple, Android and Windows gadgets. It'll also work with Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Samsung Smart TVs.
There's a catch, though. The streaming episodes are only available to cable subscribers with Time Warner, Comcast, Cox, AT&T and a few other companies. Some popular providers like Verizon FiOS aren't currently supported. To see if you have access, just visit the site and click on an episode to watch. A list of supported providers will pop up, and you can scroll through to see if your company is on the list.
But, even if you can't watch the episodes, there's some other cool features on Simpsons World that are open to everyone, cable subscription or not.
Don't know which episodes to check out? Simpsons World makes it easy to find the best ones with a running tally of the most popular seasons at the top of the page. You can even click on each season to see which individual episodes other viewers are watching most.
Obviously, the full catalog of streaming episodes is Simpsons World's most exciting feature, but if you can't watch those, there's still some stuff to keep you entertained.
The site is full of short clips from each episode that are free to watch without a subscription. You can access clips by clicking the featured clips link on the home page.
