As people increasingly turn to the Internet for their TV fix, Hulu is adding "Seinfeld" episodes and future AMC series to its lineup.

That means they won't be on Netflix, which has far more subscribers—more than 62 million worldwide. Hulu said Wednesday it has nearly 9 million subscribers.

Hulu is an online video service owned by Disney, Twenty-First Century Fox and Comcast. It shows some TV episodes and movies for free on its site. Subscribers pay $8 a month for more content.

All "Seinfeld" episodes will be available for Hulu subscribers in June. Hulu will also have future shows from AMC Networks Inc. channels like AMC, IFC and Sundance TV, including "Fear the Walking Dead," a spinoff of "The Walking Dead" that will air on TV this summer.

Crackle spokeswoman Naomi Bulochnikov said "Seinfeld" episodes will still be available on the site, which is owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment, however. Crackle streams a handful of episodes at a time for free.
