Hundreds of classic movie titles from Warner Brothers, MGM, an Universal are disappearing today off of Netflix. We know that Woody Allen’s “Stardust Memories”, Charles Bronson’s “10 to midnight”, and the James Bond hits “Dr. No” and “Goldfinger” are all not making the cut along with many more.
This may upset some Netflix users; however, what needs to be understood is how Netflix works. Netflix only really rents the license from TV shows and movies. When their license expires, Netflix decides whether or not to renew the licenses by how often each video is watched. Netflix spokesman Joris Evers told CNET that the goal for the company is to be a good programmer rather than a broad distributor.
Joris also said, “Netflix is a dynamic service, we constantly update the TV shows and movies that are available to our members. We will add more than 500 titles May 1, but we also have titles expiring, this ebb and flow happens all the time.”
Evers explains the loss of films were part of a deal with Epix. “The vast majority of the titles that expire on Wednesday are older features that were aggregated by Epix,” Evers said. “We recently added many great, more recent titles such as ParaNorman (Universal), Hunger Games (Epix), Safe (Epix) and Bachelorette (Weinstein). Tomorrow we will also add MI:2, among many other titles.”
