Netflix gets the last laugh in HBO "Friends" deal

HBO and Netflix From ‘Friends’ to Foes

Max will launch that spring with 10,000 hours of content, according to Variety. With most of its competition having a single-digit monthly price tag, It's already a tough sell even with all those movies. It will also cover most of the HBO's current running programs on the platforms. Though Doom Patrol's appearance wasn't mentioned, fans can rest easy assuming that the show will also be featured in HBO Max, in addition to the DC Universe service.

Pricing details for the service have not yet been revealed, although Disney recently said its streaming offering would come in at $7 month - around half the price of a similar Netflix subscription.

In order to offer those 10,000 hours of content to its subscribers, the streaming service will include titles from HBO, Warner Bros., New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes, and more. "Thanks for the memories, gang ☕", Netflix tweeted.

Instead, fans of "Friends, " will have to look to WarnerMedia's new streaming service, called HBO Max.

In South Africa HBO series was exclusive to M-Net (DStv 101) on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV service for a number of years until shows were "co-located" with Showmax and series like the recent final season of Game of Thrones that became available on both Showmax and M-Net at the same time as the linear broadcast scheduled time.
