Onesumore: Multiple BBC Series Scheduled to Leave Netflix UK in March 2021
Compared to a few years ago, there is very little BBC library left on Netflix UK. Sadly, the BBC’s series list is further reduced with the multiple dramas and comedies slated to leave in March 2021.
Over the past two years we have seen an exodus of the BBC library on both sides of the Atlantic. In particular, since the release of BritBox in the UK, we have seen more and more BBC productions leaving the UK library.
In April 2020, we had the huge surprise to see a collection of BBC content arriving on Netflix UK, but just two months later all of the BBC’s beloved David Attenborough docuseries have left Netflix UK.
Here’s the full list of BBC titles that will be leaving Netflix at the end of March 2021:
BBC series leaves Netflix UK on March 3, 2021
BBC series leaves Netflix UK on March 30, 2021
- Diana: Seven days that rocked the world (1 season)
- Extras (2 seasons)
- Fawlty Towers (2 seasons)
- Harry Enfield and Chums (2 seasons)
- Harry Enfield presents… (1 season)
- The Job Lot (3 seasons)
- The Office (UK) (2 seasons)
- Parade’s End (1 season)
- The Thick of It (4 seasons)
Removing the above series will likely see them move to BritBox, the streaming service run by the BBC and ITV.
The existence of BritBox and the involvement of the BBC continues the long debate over the status of the TV license fee. For many UK residents, they believe that the very existence of BritBox should make TV license fees obsolete, as both are effectively paying you twice for the same content.
It should be noted that series such as Office and Fawlty towers has been scheduled to leave Netflix UK previously. But, ultimately, their respective licenses were renewed by Netflix UK.
