January 14, 2015

Dr-WhoThe US Netflix service will reportedly be losing all of its BBC content at the end of January.

The contract with the BBC expires on February 1st, meaning that all of the titles that come to Netflix courtesy of the BBC will be immediately removed including Top Gear, Luther, Doctor Who, Fawlty Towers and Little Britain.

Reports suggest that it is still possible that a late deal could be struck to renew the contract with the BBC. The corporation still has a long-term content deal in place with Netflix’ rival Amazon Prime.
