Netflix’s most viewed show The Office might get pulled from the popular streaming service.
Internal talks from NBCUniversal are currently deciding whether or not The Office stays on Netflix, according to Business Insider.
Although Netflix’s streaming contract doesn’t end until 2021, talks about pulling it are in the works.
Moving The Office might be used as leverage for NBCUniveral’s ad-supported streaming service. It’s set to launch in 2020.
NBCUniveral’s streaming service will be free for cable-TV subscribers.
All of this is BAD news for Netflix.
The Office, Friends and Parks And Recreation are Netflix’s most watched shows, according to Recode. All of which being NBC exclusive shows.
Lastly, having the big 3 most streamed shows on NBCUniversal’s streaming service could potentially cost revenue for Netflix.
