Deleting a lot of great titles and they want us to believe it’s a good thing.
If you’re a movie enthusiast and love those nostalgic movie titles like E.T. and Forrest Gump, NetFlix won’t be a place to enjoy those titles. In 2018, Netflix is deleting popular cult classic movies and popular TV shows.
Here’s what Netflix will delete January 1, 2018:
The Addams Family
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
Daddy Day Care
The Day the Earth Stood Still
The Desert Fox: The Story of Rommel
Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood
Dressed to Kill
E.T. the Extra Terrestrial
I Am Sam
The Inn of the Sixth Happiness
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (Seasons 14-17)
Licence to Drive
Made of Honor
The Man with One Red Shoe
The Manhattan Project
The Mighty Ducks
Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous
Mona Lisa Smile
The Parent Trap
Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction
Pokémon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages
Pokémon: Indigo League (Season 1)
Pokémon: XY (Seasons 1-2)
Requiem for a Dream
Saw: The Final Chapter
The Secret Garden
Someone Like You
Three Coins in the Fountain
Young Mr. Lincoln
This is just what’s going away on Jan 1. There is a totally completely new list of deletions scheduled for the entire month of January.
What Netflix is attempting to do is spin the deletion of some iconic cultural classic movies with their original content like Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Furthermore in the wake of this ultimate entertainment dump, Netflix announces an increase in its rates to hit a major amount of its subscribers in January.
Is this the beginning of the end for the streaming giant? Have they lost sight of what subscribers want?
I have lost all faith in Netflix which has resulted in me adding my account to the stack of accounts that have cancelled their long standing subscriptions. What’s a double kick in the proverbial nuts… Netflix doesn’t care. Netflix honestly believes that for every cancelled subscription there is two to take its place. Many business leaders would agree, once you lose sight of what your market responds too – you’ve lost.
Netflix hit one out of the park with Stranger Things, but if they’ve hedged their bets on all original content its makes them no different than YouTube or Vimeo.
