‘Friends’ will ‘be there for you’ in Netflix streaming deal
All 236 episodes of the popular NBC 10-season series, one of the most-watched U.S. shows of all time, will be available for streaming in the United States and Canada on the subscription service beginning Jan. 1, 2015.
The show launched the careers of actors Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Lisa Kudrow, and made them household names.
Netflix announced the deal with a music video of the show’s hit theme song “I’ll Be There for You” performed by pop duo the Rembrandts at the show’s local coffee hangout, Central Perk. The cafe was installed as a pop-up in New York this month to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the “Friends” premiere.
