Relax! You'll still be able to stream Friends in SA

Friends

The folks over at the Wall Street Journal report that WarnerMedia has reached an agreement to keep Friends on Netflix throughout 2019, but the particulars of the deal allow WarnerMedia to also put the show on its impending streaming service. Netflix has canceled three of its five Marvel shows in the last two months, the most recent being "Daredevil" last week (Disney owns Marvel). As of Monday afternoon, the expiration date has been removed from the Friends show page, which appeared to have been a glitch. Hope everybody enjoyed the four years of Friends on Netflix! Netflix is dealing with some serious backlash after they announced that the 90's sitcom that follows a group of friends living their lives will be pulled from the platform in January.

There won't be a break from "Friends" on Netflix after all.

Netflix paid $118 million (around $500,000 per episode) for the Friends catalog in 2015. The video streaming company said it would retain the long-running sitcom for users in the United States - at least through 2019. This wasn't entirely out of the blue-WarnerMedia intends to launch its own streaming service at the end of 2019, and most assumed that Warner Bros TV-owned Friends would be a major part of that service at launch. BTIG analyst Rich Greenfield suggested as much in an analyst note in October, writing "Content like Friends is likely to disappear from Netflix in 2019 as WarnerMedia launches its own SVOD service". But given the growing competition in streaming-Apple is also getting into the game, and Netflix and Amazon are upping their content spending-it's curious that WarnerMedia doesn't want to differentiate itself more emphatically with TV shows and movies that can only be seen in one place.
