Availability notice on Rules of Engagement Netflix

In the case of Rules of Engagement, it’s not leaving because of a blanket removal from CBS rather Netflix is likely considering its lower ratings given that it’s now been off the air for five years. Netflix tends to like more recent and actively promoted shows which push subscriptions. We’ve seen it happen regularly with older shows being removed from Netflix.

Where will “Rules of Engagement” stream now?

No new home has been announced for Rules of Engagement but it is currently available on CBS’s own streaming service. As we’ve mentioned before on What’s on Netflix, CBS likes to keep its content on its All Access platform unless a competitor can offer a substantial amount.

What to watch now

Netflix has some other options for you though. It’s growing array of comedy sitcoms continues to grow with the likes of All About the Washingtons and Fuller House rocking the lineup. If you love David Spade, he stars in multiple Sandler movies exclusive to Netflix plus he just starred in “Father of the Year” a watchable if rather forgettable comedy.
