LONDON | Still there for you: ‘Friends’ most-viewed UK streaming show
LONDON — Almost 15 years after it was canceled, “Friends” is still there for British viewers.
The catchphrase-generating New York sitcom is the most popular show on U.K. streaming services, beating big-budget original productions from Netflix and Amazon.
Research by U.K. broadcast regulator Ofcom shows “Friends” led the field in the first quarter of 2018, followed by laddish Amazon auto show “The Grand Tour” and lavish Netflix royal drama “The Crown.”
The figures may be attributable to binge-watching by “Friends” fans after the show was added to Netflix’s U.K.
