Live from Yahoo! It’s Saturday Night! Yahoo! has just announced that it acquired the exclusive rights to classic clips of “Saturday Night Live” from 1975 through 2012, effective in September. It appears that Yahoo wants to through itself into the online video scrum that’s being played by the likes of Hulu, Amazon, Netflix, etc. In fact, the exclusive deal trumps Hulu and NBC.com where SNL clips will now be removed. More from Brian Stelter at The New York Times.
