A number of classic comedy shows will be leaving Netflix UK this month – scroll down for the full list of titles.

Many shows from the BBC archives have just expired or will soon no longer be available to watch on the streaming platform, as well as Channel 4‘s Friday Night Dinner, according to What’s On Netflix.

Last week, Extras, Fawlty Towers and The Office UK all left Netflix – while the US remake of The Office joined the streaming platform earlier in the year. 


Today (July 6) Dinner Ladies and The Vicar Of Dibley are no longer available to view, while the latter is currently available to watch on BBC iPlayer.

Here’s the full list of classic comedy titles leaving Netflix in July:

In other BBC news, the broadcaster recently defended their new logo, after many criticised the minimal changes online.

“We are simply using our own font – which we own the intellectual rights to – to tidy up the blocks when we update content or BBC products,” they said in a statement.

“It would be wrong to suggest that the costs of the design of the blocks was significant.”
