RUMOR: The entire House M.D. series is set to hit Netflix streaming (Watch Instantly) soon.
FACTS: There's no official word on when House M.D. is going to hit Netflix streaming. Some users have pointed out that Fox (the network that House M.D. aired on throughout its entire run) is Netflix streaming friendly, but while that claim is true -- NBCUniversal holds the license to the House M.D. series!
lucky, NBCUniversal is also Netflix steaming friendly. Proof of that comes with the fact that they was quick to place their most popular shows (Heroes, The Office, 30 Rock, Psych, etc.) on Netflix streaming.
But here's the catch: House M.D. is far more popular than virtually every show that aired on NBC in the past 10 years. The series is so powerful, NBCUniversal could make a bundle off Blu-ray and DVD sales for decades to come.
It's also possible that Fox has the streaming rights to this series for at least 34 days from this writing, so that could delay NBCUniversal's potential plans to bring this entire series to Netflix streaming.
It's also worth noting that NBCUniversal signed a new deal with Netflix on July 13, 2011; in other words, they wouldn't make any new announcements until July 13, 2012.
