2,000 Netflix Movies to Disappear As Streaming Service Initiates Shakeup

2,000 Netflix movies to disappear isn’t perhaps the headline Netflix subscribers wanted to read this morning, but that’s what’s going down. We were also liberal with 2000 part, it’s close to 2000. Alright fine, it’s 1794.

"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," said Joris Evers, director of global corporate communications at Netflix in a statement to Netflix. Of course, most of the films that are due to go missing, you won’t really care about. But there are a few gems in there. "We are selective about what’s available to watch on Netflix. We often license TV shows and movies on an exclusive basis, so we can provide a unique experience. We’ll forego, or choose not renew, titles that aren’t watched enough,” continued Evers. “We always use our knowledge about what our members love to watch to decide what’s available on Netflix. Our goal is to be an expert programmer, offering a mix that delights our members, rather than trying to be a broad distributor.”

Netflix has become the premium choice for streaming video, with Love Film and Now TV trying to pry the media crown from atop it’s binary head. But with this recent announcement of a major film cull, fans of a hearty back catalogue might think twice about renewing their subscription.
