Newswire: Netflix is about to stop streaming Luther, Doctor Who, most BBC shows
If anyone has a spare TARDIS laying around, it sure would come in handy right about now as Netflix will reportedly be eliminating almost all of its BBC programming as of January 31.
Due to the expiration of Netflix’s contract with the BBC, the streaming service will no longer carry a number of U.K. imports, including Doctor Who, Luther, Fawlty Towers, Black Adder, the original British version of House Of Cards, Wallander, Coupling, Top Gear, and more. This is potentially a huge blow for the people who depend on the online subscription service to provide them with across-the-pond entertainment. Plus, some of us might be a little late to the game on Black Mirror, and need a bit more time to get through all the episodes. There is no word yet on whether any negotiations are taking place between the two companies.
