List of Netflix UK Exclusives

Published on EST


When is an original not an original? Quite often actually. When Netflix buys exclusive distribution rights to programs, they are rebranded as Netflix Originals even though they were made by different production companies around the world.

Does it matter? Not really. The first true Netflix Original was, of course, House of Cards and their own output has exploded since then. But this is dramatically increased by their buying in of other programmes from around the world. These programmes are the re-released in various territories.

Here’s a list of the programmes offered by Netflix in the UK.
