2,000 Netflix Movies to Disappear TodayBy: Sean Patterson - May 3, 2013
Netflix users may find their Instant Watch queues a bit lighter today. Nearly 2,000 movie titles on the popular streaming video service are set to expire today.
Originally, Slate had reported that the movies set to disappear were from MGM and United Artists, and are set to move over to the new Warner Archive Instant streaming service. Warner Bros has since denied this, and a Netflix spokesperson has stated that the movies were part of a contract the company had with Epix.
Regardless of where they are going, Netflix users today will not be able to stream movies such as Adaptation, and Big Daddy.
In other Netflix news, the company is pushing forward with its original programming initiatives. The release date of the next Netflix original series has just been announced.
Orange is the New Black will premiere on July 11, with thirteen one-hour episodes being released all at once. Starring Jason Biggs and Laura Prepon, the comedy series follows a “Brooklynite” sent to women’s prison who must deal with her new eccentric inmates.
