FXX to air EVERY Simpsons EVER back-to-back in best TV marathon ever

FXX plans what may well be the longest ever TV marathon, with every Simpsons episode airing back to back for a week and a half before the new season starts

TV network FXX just bought all the rights to the Simpsons, and to celebrate before the next series airs, is planning to show the entirety of the long running cartoon sitcom, back to back, in what must be the longest and best TV marathon ever.

FXX recently bought the rights to all episodes for just shy of 1 billion USD - at 750 million dollars. But it sounds like it will be putting the much loved show to good use, as every single one of the 552 episodes will be on the channel 24/7 - as well as the movie - for an entire week and a half.

FXX will also launch a digital hub later this year that will allow fans to access any episode, any time online at SimpsonsWorld.com - mirroring a similar effort that was recently canned by South Park. The fun begins at 10am on August 21 and broadcasts constantly until 12am, September 1.
