Netflix Newcomers For January Include Bad Boys II, Cast Away And Friends: The Complete Series

2 January 2015 7:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What better way to ring in the New Year than to spend time with Joey, Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler and Phoebe? That’s the question Netflix has posed to its subscribers across North America and Canada after all ten seasons of Friends arrived on the streaming service on New Year’s Day.

Heralding no less than 238 episodes of the beloved sitcom — which ran from 1994 up until 2004 — fans will be left spoilt for choice, and it’s an addition that will no doubt instigate its fair share of late-night marathons.

Friends isn’t the only new addition to the company’s online selection though, with the likes of Bad Boys II, Cast Away and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas also cropping up from January 1 onwards. From that point on, Netflix also has plans to introduce several new titles incrementally. For action devotees, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit will make its bow tomorrow, »

New Year’s Day is here, which probably means a fair amount of you are dealing with varying degrees of a hangover.  As regularly happens every few months, Netfiix has undergone some changeover with regards to its Watch Instantly options.  In order to help you laze the day away, we’ve put together a full list of not only titles that are available on Netflix starting today, but also films and TV shows that will be hitting the streaming service throughout the month of January.  Most notably, the complete series of Friends is available to stream in its entirety right now, and I’m not sure I could find a better recommendation for a stay-in-your-PJs, do-as-little-as-possible day like today.  Start 2015 off right by watching Season 5’s “The One with All the Resolutions” and be grateful you didn’t wear leather pants last night.  Or, if you're looking for something more »
