There comes a time in every young person’s life when they must accept two truths. The first is completely unrelated to digital media and involves learning that consuming alcoholic beverages on an empty stomach isn’t a good idea. For users that do decide to drink on an empty stomach the second lesson is more crucial: Friends is timeless and goes incredibly well with an upset stomach, a sick day and a comfortable blanket. The old among you know what I’m talking about and the young among you won’t have to wait long to find out on their own. Earlier today Netflix announced that Friends will arrive on its instant streaming service this coming January.

The company didn’t announce any other details besides Friends’ January 2015 debut on its streaming service. That’s because it didn’t actually need to. The entire show’s run will be available for users to stream at their leisure in the New Year. For $9.99 a month users will be able to watch Rachel, Chandler, Ross and Joey struggle to keep romantic entanglements afloat and make somewhat cruel jokes at each other’s expense. In addition we’ll be able to watch the delectable Courtney Cox before she ever picked up a giant wine glass and teamed up with other cast members for Cougar Town. There’s also some “Smelly Cat” songs in there from actress Lisa Cudrow.

Netflix costs $7.99 a month and includes unlimited access to the service’s entire catalog of digital streaming movies and television shows. Netflix apps are available for nearly anything that plugs into a television or has a display of its own. That includes Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One. There are also Windows Phones, Windows, iPhone, iPad and Android apps.
