Netflix Loses A Bunch Of Its Movies

A major downside of VOD services compared with having a vast Blu-ray or DVD library is timing. Services like Netflix, Hulu, etc. have contracts with content providers – contracts that expire usually around the end of a calendar year unless otherwise renewed.

Thus from January 1st, certain films will no longer be available on that service to watch when you want. Today, a Reddit post has listed the films that are about to drop off Netflix due to contract with various rights providers running out. When (or even if) they will return is anyone’s guess. The list is as follows:
