Agreement between streaming network and British channel expires at month’s end
Netflix will eliminate most of its BBC programs by January 31 due to an expiring contract.
Shows like “Doctor Who,” “Luther,” “Black Adder,” “Fawlty Towers,” “Coupling,” “Top Gear,” “House of Cards” (the original British version), “Wallander,” and more will disappear from the streaming network’s lineup in the event an agreement on a new deal isn’t reached, according to Vulture.
But it was streaming competitor Amazon that took home top honors for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy—as its transgender series “Transparent” starring Jeffrey Tambor was victorious.
Netflix has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment on negotiations with BBC.
