Woo-Hoo! The Simpsons Cash-In On Cable

Following a multiple network bidding war, FXX has become the exclusive cable home for The Simpsons.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upstart network has secured cable, VOD and non-linear rights to the longest-running comedy series in history, the network announced Friday.

As part of the pact -- said to be the biggest off-network deal ever -- FXX will become the cable destination for all seasons of 20th Century Fox TV's The Simpsons starting in August 2014.

The deal covers 24 seasons -- a whopping 530 episodes -- as well as subsequent seasons not in first-run on Fox of the series from Gracie Films Productions and executive producers James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean.

The deal will mark the first time the series will air on cable.
