Netflix Losing 1,800 Movies From Its Streaming Library

Netflix has chopped almost 1,800 movies from its streaming library (while adding only 500 new titles). The company says you shouldn't panic though, this is just the natural "ebb and flow" of the service.

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.
