Popular HBO Show Reportedly Coming To Netflix Soon

According to reports, Netflix will be getting the well-liked HBO series Sex and the City, carrying on a licensing trend between the two rival streaming services.

The comedy series, which Darren Starr created for television and was based on Candace Bushnell's writings, made its HBO premiere in June 1998. Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis appeared in the plot, which followed Sarah Jessica Parker's character Carrie Bradshaw.

Sex and the City will be available on Netflix as part of an HBO license agreement, according to a social media post by Dylan Byers of Puck.

Early in April, The New York Times will start offering Sex and the City for streaming on Netflix. Additionally, the comedy will remain accessible on Max. 

The follow-up series And Just Like That..., which has been renewed for a third season and will continue to be available only to Max, is exempt from this. The amount Netflix is paying for Sex in the City's license is unknown.

Although it may be the biggest and most recognizable HBO Original to date, Sex and the City is not the first to be licensed to Netflix.

Netflix and HBO entered into a licensing agreement for The Pacific, Ballers, Six Feet Under, and Insecure last year. Several of the shows have become popular on Netflix since then. 

Particularly noteworthy on Netflix is the popularity of Ballers, a sports dramedy starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
