- FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” is leaving Netflix, which could signal
future FX and Fox shows leaving the service, as the Disney-Fox deal
is expected to close in January.
- Disney is launching its own streaming service next year, which
will compete with Netflix.

FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” is leaving Netflix in December, signaling
what could be in store for shows owned by Disney after the
Disney-Fox deal is complete.
According to Netflix’s website (first pointed out by
CinemaBlend), “Sons of Anarchy” is only available until
FX, which originally distributed the series about biker club
starring Ron Perlman and Charlie Hunnam, is a Fox property. But
once the merger with Disney is complete (it’s expected to close in
January), it will be owned by Disney.
Disney is expected to launch its own streaming service late next
year that would compete with Netflix, so “Sons of Anarchy” being
pulled could mean bad things for FX’s other shows on Netflix, such
as “American Horror Story” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson.”

Other FX shows like “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and
“Archer,” and Fox shows like “Bob’s Burgers” and “Empire,” left
Netflix previously, but can be found on Hulu, which Disney will own
60% of once its Fox deal closes.
Disney also owns ABC, which could mean that those shows are in
danger of leaving Netflix and either being exclusively streamed on
Hulu or the upcoming Disney service. Some ABC shows currently on
Netflix include “Scandal,” “How to Get Away with Murder,” “Grey’s
Anatomy,” “Once Upon a Time,” and “Marvel’s Agents of
How ‘The Price Is Right’ is made
