Netflix To Dump Many Popular Streaming Titles On January 1

Updated on

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) is set to drop dozens of popular TV shows and movies from its streaming service on January 1, according to a list on Reddit. Starting Wednesday, the original Dark Shadows, War Games, Kids in the Hall, Top Gun, Titanic… none of these will be available for video-on-demand. That’s because rights on these titles will elapse. The movie rental site’s list won’t include these and many other starting New Year’s.

A Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) executive told CNet that the video streaming company routinely brings new titles and deletes some old ones depending on the licensing contracts. It’s just the way Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) acquires content. Its licensing is time-based. They pay to license rights for a multi-year exclusive streaming subscription. Once the license expires, the two parties can negotiate another deal or it’s over. Here is the list of titles that are going to expire starting January 1st. It’s for the U.S. market only.
