LOS ANGELES – Jennifer Aniston calls it "unbelievable" that "Friends" still has an audience large enough to allow her to enter into multi-million dollar trade agreements to avoid her disappearance on Netflix.
"I find it amazing that she continues to have such love, such a public and such an appetite," Aniston told The Associated Press on Thursday at the premiere of her film on Netflix, "Dumplin '".
After the outcry sparked by fans, Netflix announced earlier in the week that it was keeping the adventures of Ross, Rachel, Phoebe and Joey available to subscribers until 2019 – at a reported price of $ 100 million. dollars to the streaming service.
"I think that says a lot about the show. All the more so as it happens at a time when it's so different from now. You know, people actually talked and talked, "Aniston said.
WarnerMedia is the owner of the show, which aired on NBC for ten years and ended in 2004. It has won six Emmy Awards, including that of best comedy actress, Emmy, for Aniston.
Netflix has paid more than three times the $ 30 million a year paid for "Friends," the New York Times reported earlier this week, citing two unidentified people with direct knowledge of the deal.
"Friends" could soon appear more places online. The Times said that nothing in the Netflix deal would prevent the show from spending on a streaming service proposed by AT & T that should be launched in 2020
