Netflix will be losing all Starz series and movies
Toy Story 3, Twister, Scream, Party Down, Scarface are just some of the titles included in the 1,000 viewing options that Netflix will lose at the end of this month. Starz contract with Netflix expires today, and although streaming will be available until tomorrow, it doesn’t leave you much time to watch all the movies or shows you may want to. Starz came out publicly with the following statement:
This decision is a result of our strategy to protect the premium nature of our brand by preserving the appropriate pricing and packaging of our exclusive and highly valuable content. With our current studio rights and growing original programming presence, the network is in an excellent position to evaluate new opportunities and expand its overall business.
According to an Engadget post from September, Starz decided to remove its movies and television shows from Netflix after talks broke down over the programming provider’s insistence that Netflix implement a tiered pricing system requiring customers to pay more for some Starz content.
Here is a list of some of the things you should go watch right now before you can’t anymore:
Toy Story 3
That Thing You Do!
Robin Hood: Men in Tights
Rumble in the Bronx
The Nutty Professor
Let Me In
Howl’s Moving Castle
The Man Without a Face
