American late-night television sketch comedy and variety show Saturday Night Live (SNL) is now available on Shaw Video-on-demand (VOD).

Shaw Cable becomes the first Canadian television provider to offer full seasons of Saturday Night Live commercial free on its VOD service.

Saturday Night Live premiered in October of 1975. Since that time, more than 700 episodes have been broadcast over the span of 37 seasons. Shaw says several seasons are now available with more content being added weekly. Shaw says customers ultimately have access to over 30 years of content.

"More and more, our customers are looking to access their content on demand - watching what they want, when they want," said Peter Bissonnette, President, Shaw Communications Inc. "Saturday Night Live is just another way we're providing our customers with exceptional entertainment experiences."

The cost for access to SNL on VOD will be $2.99 per month.
