‘Friends’ leaves Netflix in 2020

‘Friends’ leaves Netflix in 2020

For example, we already know that Friends will be leaving US Netflix to move over the HBO Max, and that other '90s favourite The Fresh Prince of Bel Air will also be on the platform.

HBO Max will also carry original shows and movies.

The company said in a statement: "Anchored with and inspired by the legacy of HBO's excellence and award-winning storytelling, the new service will be "Maximized" with an extensive collection of exclusive original programming (Max Originals) and the best-of-the-best from WarnerMedia's enormous portfolio of beloved brands and libraries".

When DC Universe and a number of other networks were shown to be a part of Warner Bros upcoming HBO Max streaming service, fans were confused.

The price of the service isn't yet known. Late past year, Netflix signed an eye-watering $80 million rerun deal to keep the beloved 90s sitcom streaming on the platform "through 2019".

The overall expectation of the company is to enlarge viewers with Friends and new original contents. Which new shows are you most excited to see?

Apple plans to launch its new streaming service, Apple TV+, also in late-2019, also with a host of new shows.

With Disney Plus landing in November, Quibi's April 2020 launch, and NBCUniversal's service launching in 2021, there will be ample competition for HBO Max ahead.

HBO hasn't announced a specific release date yet, but has said that the service will launch in 2020, so there's still a little while to wait before it's available. As far as the movies are concerned, Reese Witherspoon and "Riverdale" executive producer Greg Berlanti will be working on new projects for the streaming service.
