Close to 2,000 Netflix movies are about to disappear beginning on May 1, 2013, and there is nothing that anyone can do about it. The Atlantic Wire revealed on April 30, 2013, that an exact number of 1,794 titles will disappear from Netflix over the month of May due to expiring deals with MGM, Viacom, Warner Bros., and Universal.
The full list of Netflix titles that will be gone from the streaming library by the end of May can be seen here: Netflix expiring titles. Let it be known that the site is often down due to high traffic.
Some of the titles that will be going away include highly-rated classics to some that are just guilty pleasures or downright awful. They include:
- “Dr. No”
- “How to Stuff a Wild Bikini”
- “Stardust Memories”
- “Cruel Intentions”
Mind you, there are a reported 60,000 titles of television shows, movies, documentaries, and more in the Netflix library, but many of these will still be missed. It has been reported though, that nothing with a 4.5 rating or higher is going away.
Netflix spokesman Joris Evers released a statement:
“The vast majority of the titles that expire on Wednesday are older features that were aggregated by Epix. We recently added many great, more recent titles such as ParaNorman (Universal), Hunger Games (Epix), Safe (Epix) and Bachelorette (Weinstein). Tomorrow we will also add MI:2, among many other titles.
“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.”
