Friends is coming to Netflix Canada and USA this January

Friends Gets 11 Emmy Nominations

One of the greatest sitcoms to ever grace the television screen is coming to Netflix on January 1, 2015. For a change, Canadian users won’t be left in the dark when it comes to programming on Netflix as Friends will be available to its members on both sides of the U.S.-Canada border.

The announcement was made earlier today on Netflix’s Twitter account:

Getting the popular series on the streaming service is a major coup for the streaming service, ensuring that millions will spend the cold winter months binging on Friends from beginning to end.

The show has won a total of 62 Emmy Awards and is ranked as one of the greatest television shows of all time by TV Guide. The series finale on May 6, 2004 attracted 52.5-million American viewers – a number that no other television show has come close to reaching in the decade following the conclusion of decade-long Friends.

Netflix’s successful acquisition could also pave way to the near-future inclusion of another gem from NBC’s golden era: Seinfeld.
