Has Netflix Renewed Their Contract with BBC?

North and South NetflixAccording to a commenter, JustLuthen, it’s a done deal:

“I just spoke with Netflix. It has renewed its contract with the BBC and RA’s not going anywhere.”

Thanks, Luthen. It’s a great message on a Monday morning, and my optimist is clinging onto it. Not because I need to watch the Netflix version of North and South, or MI-5 (Spooks) or Robin Hood, but because it’s such an easy way to turn potential fans onto Richard Armitage.

Maybe some of the rest of you can also call to ensure that Netflix means what they say! :D

edit: Spooks is not staying. Bummer.

What Variety should have said about the shows not staying:

Fans should ‘plain that “Fawlty Towers,” “Blackadder,” “MI-5″ and “Red Dwarf” will no longer be available on Feb. 1.

:D

If Zan’s blog name was ever apropos, it is on this piece. LOL! Thank you, Zan for making sure we have a place to quickly get a fix!

Sad, sad, sad … Netflix is cleaning house on February 1, 2015. Among the many changes coming, we’ll be losing access to some of our favorites …

Right then … so what to do when needing a Richard fix and the DVD player is just not convenient? Not to despair, dear friends!
