A moment of silence for all Friends fans. US reruns of the popular television sitcom Friends will be moving from Netflix Inc to a new streaming service, HBO Max in 2020.
The service, from AT&T Inc’s WarnerMedia is scheduled to launch next spring, and is expected to offer more than a dozen original shows and movies from stars including Reese Witherspoon and Anna Kendrick. Programming from AT&T-owned networks such as HBO and TBS and classics from the Warner Bros film and TV library will also be part of the service.
A subscription price for HBO Max has not yet been announced.
Friends, a TV hit in the 1990s, was the second-most-watched show on Netflix in the United States when measured by minutes streamed, according to Nielsen data for 2018. The most-viewed Netflix show is The Office, which will switch from Netflix to a planned digital offering from Comcast Corp’s NBCUniversal in 2021.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix lost Friends in a bidding war with WarnerMedia, which agreed to pay $85 million per year for five years for the show. Netflix reportedly made a Herculean effort to keep the show, spending $80 to $100 million to keep the series for 2019, but couldn’t manage beyond that.
Netflix, in a comment on Twitter, said it was “sorry to see ‘Friends’ go.”
“Thanks for the memories, gang,” the company said.
Nasir Khan Jan is not only famous for his video content and unabashed style but also how he takes criticism and negative comments. Nasir Khan Jan has lately started becoming active on Twitter and has been winning hearts with his tweets. He proved that he has a strong tweet game when he clapped back at model Rabia Butt after she attempted to troll him.
Nisar Khan Jan recently posted a picture of himself on Twitter with the caption “Cheat your boyfriend and propose me”.
Soon after, Pakistanis started commenting on NKJ’s picture. Among those was Rabia Butt who jumped in with a most sexist reply.
“Who should propose you? The boyfriend or the girlfriend?”, Butt wrote in response.
To which NKJ responded, “Log naam kama gaye mujhe badnaam kartay kartay.” Following NKJ’s tweet, Rabia played it safe and tweeted:
A friendly banter between the two then ensued.
Rabia’s comments didn’t sit well with NKJ’s fans who started schooling Rabia. To them, the model tweeted:
What do you think? Good friends or throwing shade?
