Compared to a few years ago there is very little remaining of the BBC library on Netflix UK. Sadly, the list of BBC series is being whittled down even further with the multiple dramas and comedies scheduled to leave in March 2021.
Over the past two years, we’ve seen an exodus of the BBC library on both sides of the Atlantic. In particular, since the release of BritBox in the UK we’ve seen more and more productions from the BBC leaving the UK library.
Here’s the full list of BBC titles set to leave Netflix at the end of March 2021:
BBC Series Leaving Netflix UK on March 3rd, 2021
BBC Series Leaving Netflix UK on March 30th, 2021
- Diana: Seven Days That Shook 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 (U.K.) (2 Seasons)
- Parade’s End (1 Season)
- The Thick of It (4 Seasons)
The removal of the above series will likely see them move to BritBox, the streaming service spearheaded by the BBC and ITV.
The existence of BritBox and the involvement of the BBC continues the lengthy debate about the status of the TV license fee. For many UK residents, they believe that the very existence of BritBox should make the TV license fee obsolete, due to the fact by having both you are effectively paying for the same content twice.
It must be noted that series such as The Office and Fawlty Towers has been scheduled to leave Netflix UK before. But, eventually, their respective licenses were renewed by Netflix UK.
