Netflix is an American media-services provider and production company headquartered in Los Gatos, California. The company was founded in 1997 by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph in Scotts Valley, California. Netflix is a subscription-based streaming service which offers online streaming of a library of films and television programs, including their own "Netflix Original" content.
Netflix had previously streamed select Thomas & Friends content on their platform (mainly online video packages and direct-to-video specials) before it was pulled in 2017 in favour of being broadcast on Nickelodeon. In February 2020, Mattel made a deal with Netflix, ending the Nickelodeon deal back in December 2019, to stream Thomas & Friends in the US, starting with Series 23 on 15 March 2020 and followed by the Series 24 specials in May. Thomas & Friends is also available on Netflix in many other countries.
