Netflix letting go of ‘Friends’ for new HBO Max streaming service

NEW YORK -

Netflix is saying goodbye to “Friends!” The hit TV show has found a new home in Warner Media's new streaming service, called HBO Max. “Friends” will make the switch in 2020, when HBO Max becomes available. The new service has also signed on big names like Reese Witherspoon and Greg Berlanti to create original projects. Warner Media hasn't yet announced how much the service will cost -- but it is expected to compete with Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+.

Uber is rolling out a whole new 'comfort' category. Riders can now request extra legroom, minimal conversation, or ask their drivers to turn on the AC before they're picked up. It is available alongside the other categories like UberX and Uber Black. Uber says the 'comfort' feature will cost 20 to 40 percent more than a typical UberX trip. This new addition comes after Uber's public debut earlier this year. Its shares sunk 11% after the IPO -- the biggest first-day-loss in U.S. history.

BMW is making it easier to visit America's national parks. The automaker is partnering with U.S. agencies to offer free electric vehicle charging stations near national parks. As automakers are ramping up production of electrical vehicles, they will need to keep up with demand for chargers.
