The agreement is reported to include all 180 episodes at an estimated $700,000 per episode value. Sony Pictures  controls the distribution rights and this marks the first time the series has been unleashed in it’s entirety in digital form. TBS runs the series in syndication and has so for years. This Hulu deal is said to have no affect on how TBS airs the reruns.
