Last year, FX sister site FXX landed the exclusive cable and video-on-demand rights to The Simpsons, and it looks like fans of the show will finally see a payoff soon. While the nearly $1 billion deal includes cable distribution rights, the big news is that FX will be launching a dedicated app that allows subscribers to stream the entire series (all 24 seasons and counting) legally from mobile devices and the web … 

There’s currently no way to legally stream the show, and while FX has said it won’t be coming to the new FXNOW on-demand app, the network has officially confirmed that a Simpsons-specific app is in the works and will require an FXNOW account. That means if you want to stream The Simpsons, you’ll have to get your cable through one of the few providers that offer the service (which is reportedly only about half of the cable providers in the U.S.).  D’oh!
