NOTE: List includes only WoNN-recommended titles and those too big to ignore. Feel free to add others in the comments below (although please try not to duplicate what's already been posted).

Tip #1: Regularly check your online Instant Queue/My List for expiration notices, listed in red in the Notes column. They're usually posted a week before a title expires.

Tip #2: You can watch a title past midnight if you start streaming it by 11:59pmas long as you don't back out or pause more than 15 minutes. On the east coast you may be able to go as late as 1:59am.

I read that soon the Netflix search page will have a "Last Chance" bar added. Not sure how much notice they will give on expiring titles.

David Speranza said...

I read that a while back as well. Will believe it when I see it!

Starchild said...

I hate it when they take off British shows - I miss my British detectives! I read somewhere that you can change your zone or region easily? I wonder if British Netflix gets more of those shows? I take it that Amazon Prime outbid Netflix for a lot of these titles. I dislike it because of the format - the interface is just terrible in my opinion. Hard to search, and pay movies are mixed in with the free.

David Speranza said...

I don't think it was a case of Amazon outbidding Netflix--I think both services have simply held onto the shows they consider most important. Plus it seems like the BBC is getting pickier about what it wants to share (possibly as it considers its own streaming service?).

I'm not crazy about Amazon's interface either, but I'm getting used to it.

As for changing your region, I've never done that, but there are certainly ways out there if you type the right words into Google. ;-)

If Netflix won't show enough British shows, try Acorn TV. It's all British all the time.

TruePerception said...

Several of the cooking shows that had only 25 episodes, have now had their first seasons removed, and have shifted to season 2. Also, Iron Chef America was added.

Starchild said...

Which shows? I was hoping they'd put season 2 of Pioneer Woman on, because it was renewed after all, but still just season 1.

TruePerception said...

Triple D, Man vs. Food, and Good Eats, for sure, but I assume it's all of the ones added previously with 25 episodes. I'm pretty Chopped was on Season 2, as well.

TruePerception said...

Also, Next Food Network Star has seasons 9 and 10 (not sure what they were before), Mind of a Chef still has the same two seasons, Chopped IS season 2 only now, as is Cupcake wars. Cutthroat Kitchen is still on season 1, Kitchen Nightmares has 3 and 4, and Ramsey's Best Restaurant is only season 1. Other than that, just check out the Food & Travel TV subsection of TV Shows.

You've probably all noticed this, but just want it on the record that the Netflix user Home page is no longer showing the expiration date beneath movies/shows on My List (now the second row on the page, below Continue Watching). Not a big deal, but that reminder made decisions easier as soon as I opened Netflix. I keep all expiring stuff at the beginning of my list, but I can't remember all the dates.

Anonymous said...

It should still show the dates a week in advance on the full My List page.

Starchild said...

David, Is there any way we could break up the comments list, perhaps by month? Or put the newest posts first? It would be easier than scrolling down so far, especially with my finicky computer. It keeps bouncing back up!

David Speranza said...

I wish there was, but Blogger doesn't allow that kind of control. All I can do is continue culling those that are no longer relevant and keep the total to a minimum. It gets tougher to do that, though, with the increasingly long lead times people are posting! Maybe I'll try consolidating more of the standalone entries...

Has the style of comments changed for everyone? Because ifso, this new format sucks.

David Speranza said...

Yep, this is how it is, sorry. I explained why in my last post.

Last day: 4/24

A Barefoot Dream (Maen-bal-eui Ggoom) 2010 NR 1hr 59m. In Korean (Netflix blurb: A former South Korean soccer player heads to the fledgling country of East Timor, where he teaches poor children how to play ball.)

I share the dismay with the new comment form.

"Sherlock Holmes," which you listed as expiring on 4/19, isn't available for streaming on Netflix. It is on Amazon, perhaps it's expiring there?

Anonymous said...

The movie expiring is a rip-off of the Robert Downey Jr. movie made by The Asylum (they did Sharknado) and directed by Rachel Goldenberg.

will g said...

Oh, thanks, didn't see that on my first search. And the first line of Neflix's blurb is "Not to be confused with the Robert Downey Jr. blockbuster..."

Starchild said...

I know, Asylum films are, well, goofy! I watched 15 minutes of Sharknado 2 and was laughing so hard I fell on the floor! Come on! Where else can you see people in a jet 40,000 feet up at least getting eaten by sharks!

Of course, I liked reading "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and am thrilled they are making a movie of it! So I guess I am tacky enough to give this Sherlock a go.
