Disney Pulls Netflix’s 20th Biggest TV Shows Internationally

Pictured: Sons of Anarchy, How I Met Your Mother, Grey’s Anatomy

January 1 usually brings a lot of big changes when it comes to licensed content and 2022 will be no different. On January 1, 2022, a huge collection of Disney content via 20th Television will be leaving most parts of the world. Here’s what goes.

In almost every case, the shows in question have already left Netflix in the United States. Most Fox titles notably left Netflix US in 2017 and 2018.

Where will all of these shows air next? Well, in any case, they’re already streaming to their new homes with this on Disney+.

Disney+ expanded its lineup in early 2021 with a new tile called Star that houses all of the shows below and many more shows that didn’t make it to Netflix.

The key question from a business perspective is whether pulling shows like this will result in new subscribers. It’s unclear, but if you’re desperate to watch these shows, this is what you’ll need to subscribe to in the future.
