SNL will stream Elon Musk episode internationally on YouTube
You can see the new episode anywhere on earth, possibly on the moon.
Despite its title Saturday night live Live broadcasting didn’t begin until 2017 in the United States when NBC began broadcasting new episodes live on both coasts. For the latest episode of Elon MuskThe network will expand its broadcast to more than 100 countries via YouTube.
Variety got the news on SNL streaming their latest episode worldwide on YouTube to expand the audience for the show. Where normally only the performances of the musical guests are available worldwide, this time the entire episode can be streamed simultaneously on YouTube from South Africa to New Zealand.

Frances Berwick, Chairman of NBCU Entertainment Networks, commented on the broadcast’s change in a statement.
“’SNL’ is a global phenomenon and this livestream marks the first time audiences around the world have seen the show at the same time as the US. It’s incredibly exciting to create this global event with host Elon Musk and musical guest Miley Cyrus. We thank our international partners and YouTube for helping us to achieve this. ”
It’s still unclear whether the livestream will be supported by advertising, which Variety said was one of the reasons NBC plans to stream new episodes of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Late night with Seth Meyers on Peacock ahead of her TV show when the needs of local NBC partners killed the plan before it got off the ground.
Perhaps because of the pandemic, or perhaps just as a sign of the future as the world becomes more connected and streaming services cater to global audiences, we are seeing changes in late night television. Recently, Conan O’Brien for example, announced the date for the end of his show on TBS before joining HBO Max.
It’s unclear if SNL will continue to stream future episodes live or if this is a one-and-do deal, but the show will air a new episode tonight with Musk as the host and lead actor Miley Cyrus as a musical guest. You can see the new episode at the link below.
