The TV show Friends ran for 10 successful seasons on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004. Over the show’s lifetime, it managed to win 62 primetime Emmy Awards and frequently appeared on many of TV’s “best-of” lists. Recently, the show has seen a resurgence in popularity among nostalgic Gen X-ers and millennials. It has even gained a fandom within Gen Z as well.
With fans spanning 3 generations, it becomes one of the more in-demand shows to watch online. With the show originally airing on NBC, you would expect that Friends would be available to stream on NBC’s streaming service, Peacock, but it’s not there. This article will explain how you can stream all 10 seasons of Friends and enjoy the antics of Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler, and Joey.
All 10 Seasons of Friends are on HBO Max
Back in 2019, HBO Max spent $425 Million to have Friends‘ streaming rights for 5 years. Every episode of all 10 seasons of Friends is available to watch online for HBO Max subscribers. A subscription to HBO Max provides everything available on HBO and other content licensed from other brands like Friends.
You can watch Friends by subscribing to HBO Max for $14.99 per month. There is no contract, so you can pay monthly and cancel at any time. Once you subscribe, you can watch Friends using the HBO Max app. The HBO Max app can be downloaded to any of the following devices:

- Samsung TV (2016 models and later)
- Xbox One

Friends Still Airs on TBS
The cable TV Network TV frequently airs episodes of Friends. However, you don’t need cable to watch Friends. You can watch TBS without cable using any of the following streaming services.
Each of these services includes a cloud DVR, so you can set your DVR to record every episode of Friends when they air on TBS. This will allow you to watch all ten seasons over time slowly. TBS also will occasionally air a Friends marathon, giving you a good block of episodes to record.
However, I would recommend HBO Max if your goal is to watch Friends. I just wanted to mention the TBS option if you already have one of these services, or you know TBS is running a marathon where you could pick up one of the trial offers and watch Friends online for free.
