  • Friends

WarnerMedia's strategy boils down to wanting to have its cake and eat it, too.

Friends will be there for you on Netflix for the foreseeable future. Is it necessary to be exclusive to WarnerMedia on their product? WarnerMedia, the company that owns Friends, is developing its own streaming service and wants Friends for itself because it's an incredibly valuable property; by one estimate, it's still the third-most popular comedy in America, nearly fifteen years after it went off the air. And the impact of Disney+ is already being felt, with Netflix's Marvel quickly drying up with the cancellations of Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Daredevil.

Netflix's content boss, Ted Sarandos, said Monday that "The Christmas Chronicles", starring Kurt Russell, had 20 million views in its first week.

Under Netflix's deal, Friends will be available until 2019.

Granted, Disney can afford to cling more devoutly to exclusivity, given how many beloved brands it has under its umbrella, and how faithfully they all adhere to the same family-friendly category. However representatives for Warner Bros. Long story short, Friends is staying on Netflix, so no need to turn your December into The One with the Binge-Watch.

So use this chance to marathon as many Friends episodes as you can.

"The One Where Friends is Going Nowhere, Don't Worry", it replied to one anxious fan.

Protesting to keep Friends on Netflix is futile, because Friends' exit is a cold, hard business decision. The commotion began over the weekend when fans began to notice that the incredibly popular show would only be available through this year, leading to an outcry on social media. AT&T executive John Stankey intoned at a conference last month that companies like Netflix "should expect their libraries are going to get a lot thinner".
