'Friends' Got Taken Off Netflix And Fans Are Not Handling The News Well

It's been a bad start to the new year for fans of the hit sitcom 'Friends'.

The minute the clock struck midnight on December 31st and we rolled into the new decade, Netflix's deal with Warner Bros. officially came to a close and the show's ten seasons disappeared from everyone's 'Continue Watching' list.

Netflix bought the streaming rights for 'Friends' in 2015, paying $30 million USD per year to bring Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe and Joey onto screens around the globe.

Netflix has swept the nominations for the 77th Golden Globe Awards, with 'The Irishman' and 'Marriage Story' leading the pack.

Warner then upped the annual price tag to a whopping $100 million USD per year in 2019 and reports warned that 'Friends' probably wouldn't last much longer on Netflix.

The show is eventually heading to HBO Max (Warner Media's new service) in the US but not for a whole five months -- and fans are desperately screaming into the void, wondering how they'll get their 'Friends' fix.

Of course, there are plenty of naysayers who are cackling with glee that the sitcom is no longer available on tap -- urging 'Friends' desperados to maybe watch something else for a change.

But for die-hard Australian 'Friends' fans who need their fix ASAP, you can head along to 10 Play to stream a bunch of eps from the series that are constantly rotating.

Best of all? You won't have to pay a cent!
