Will What Men Want be coming to Netflix?
If you want to avoid the theaters and see What Men Want on Netflix, will you be able to?
It is not definite, but it is highly likely that What Men Want will be coming to Netflix in the future.
Streaming rights are big business, and they involve negotiations and deals between production companies and streaming services. Whether a show will come to Netflix depends on the production company involved.
Paramount Pictures is the production company for What Men Want. In November of 2018, Paramount Pictures entered into a contract with Netflix to produce movies to be released directly to Netflix. This deal does not appear to include streaming rights to movies released into theaters, but it does show a good relationship between Netflix and Paramount. Also, at present, Paramount does not seem to have given exclusive streaming rights to anyone else.
Given this, it is probable that at some point What Men Want will be coming to Netflix. Further evidence for this is that What Women Want was on Netflix for about a year. It came off Netflix in November of 2016, and in August of 2018, it went to Starz.
