Is Framing Britney Spears on Netflix?

Nope. Framing Britney Spears is not available to stream on Netflix.

Framing Britney Spears is part of a production from The New York Times which airs on FX and Hulu, which means it will only be available to stream on those platforms. It's unlikely that Netflix will stream the documentary as The Walt Disney Company own both FX and Hulu.

Where to watch Framing Britney Spears online

Framing Britney Spears was released on FX and Hulu on February 5th in the US. You can stream the documentary on Hulu.

Framing Britney Spears is one standalone episode in the The New York Times Presents series.

If you’re not already a Hulu subscriber, you can sign up to get a free 7-day trial. Thankfully, the Framing Britney Spears is just over one hour long so you'll have plenty of time to stream it before your trial runs out.

Unfortunately, Framing Britney Spears is not currently available to stream in the UK.

According to PopSugar, the documentary will air in the UK at some point in Spring 2021. It's possible that it could also land on Disney+ for UK viewers, as Hulu and FX are both part of the wider Walt Disney Company.

Parts of the documentary are being shared on YouTube and on social media but, at the moment, there is currently no service in the UK that is currently streaming the documentary in its entirety.
