A new study has found that young people would end their subscription with Netflix if Friends was ever removed.
The Hollywood Reporter and Morning Consult polled 2,201 adults about what would make them unsubscribe from the streaming giant and results revealed that 49 per cent of users between 18 and 29-years-old would leave if the sitcom was axed.
The same was said of The Office, along with Marvel and Disney content.
The investigation also polled what it would take to make the most amount of people leave Netflix all together.
It showed that 31 per cent would quit the platform if The Office and all of the Disney and Marvel content were shelved, compared to 30 percent if Friends, Disney and Marvel were removed.
Following that, 27 per cent would leave if Disney and Marvel content left.
These statistics follow a survey that suggests 8.7million Netflix users might abandon the service in favour of Disney+ when it’s launched later this year.
Back in April, Streaming Observer extrapolated data that they collected from the 602 US adults they polled for the research.
But even taking that into account, there’s likely to be a lot of families that’ll consider jumping ship. And it’ll probably be those with young children.
Netflix UK confirmed in February that it has no plans to remove Friends from its service anytime soon, following a nationwide panic after TNT and TBS president Kevin Reilly hinted that the smash-hit sitcom will end up on Warner’s on streaming service.
‘How many times we need to tell you Friends isn’t leaving,’ the streaming giant wrote in a tweet.
Friends is available to stream on Netflix.
