Will Netflix (NFLX) Stock Be Helped By The Possibility Of 'Seinfeld' On Demand?

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Netflix Inc. (NFLX) may soon be showing "Seinfeld" episodes, as the prospect of "Seinfeld" on demand is real, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.

Jerry Seinfeld, the star of the sitcom, suggested that during a recent Q&A on Reddit.

Since the sitcom's finale first aired on NBC in 1998, ''Seinfeld'' has enjoyed a robust second (and third, and fourth) life in reruns across the broadcast and cable TV landscape, Businessweek said.

STOCKS TO BUY: TheStreet Quant Ratings has identified a handful of stocks that can potentially TRIPLE in the next 12 months. Learn more.

The series, which was produced by a unit of Time Warner (TWX) and distributed by Sony (SNE) Pictures Television, has pulled in over $3 billion worth of revenue from the series, making it one of the most valuable TV franchises in history, Businessweek noted.

Yet all nine seasons of the show have never been available on demand for streaming viewers.

Shares of Netflix are up 0.72% to $424.89.

TheStreet Ratings team rates NETFLIX INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate NETFLIX INC (NFLX) a BUY. This is driven by multiple strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and expanding profit margins. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results."
