Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit behind the classic children's show, announced a new partnership with HBO on Thursday. The next five seasons of the series will be available on HBO, HBO Go, HBO On Demand and HBO Now.
The partnership means that Sesame Street will be able to produce almost twice as much new content in each season. The show will still be made available to PBS and its member stations, which has aired the program since 1969, only now it will be free of charge for them after a nine-month window.
