All BBC Content Will Be Leaving Netflix

......Do you love BBC shows on Netflix? Soon you may need to find a new place to watch shows like Frozen Planet, Planet Earth, Call The Midwife, and more.

According to Discovery CEO, their deal with the BBC to launch a new streaming service in 2020 will mean all BBC content will be leaving Netflix. This was announced during a conversation with a Wall Street analyst about Netflix and Hulu moving into areas traditionally dominated by Discovery. “Yes, Hulu’s doing a few food shows and Netflix does some stuff, and a little bit of natural history. But all of the BBC content is coming off Netflix.” Said CEO David Zaslav.

The good news is the BBC has also announced it is offering some of its content for free to Pluto TV. Even some content that is not on Netflix will soon be free including the Antique Road Show and classic Doctor Who episodes.

Exactly when this will happen is unknown. Though it is likely to happen before the 2020 launch of the new Discovery/BBC streaming service. For now though BBC content is still available on Netflix at this time.....

Hmm, I wonder whether they'll be pulling BBC shows from Amazon Prime, too. Hope not. I'm a few seasons behind on Doctor Who, and I'd like to stroll - rather than sprint - through those.

If these streaming services mushroom I will probably get pick one or two, binge watch then cancel and move to the next one. Come back for a month or two a year later for new episodes.
