*List includes only WoNN-recommended titles and those too big to ignore. Feel free to add others in the comments below (although try not to duplicate what others have already 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.

  1. If you want to see Starlet, which expired this past midnight, it's free at IMDb (and should be at Hulu, as well). If you're not sure, check out David's review, easily accessible from the master list at the top of this page. Don't know how long it will be free; they usually don't offer them free for long. I was surprised at how much I liked it.

    1. These are Korean dramas. I recommend "To the Beautiful You". It's more approachable than many, and the plot revolves around fairly tame gender-bending.

  6. Not a bad month for expirations, after all. When I saw the number of Amazon Prime titles leaving I feared the worst, but I would say this is a pretty normal month for Netflix.

    1. The last Streamageddon (I call it when over 500 titles are fixing to leave Netflix at once) was easily explainable. That was when Warner Archive Instant started.

      My feeling is that Netflix won't let that happen again on purpose. They got a lot of bad publicity for that happening. The only way another Streamageddon happens is if some company wants to take on Netflix head to head. And I don't think that will happen anytime soon.

      Delete
    2. But Warner Archive Instant is only rare and hard to find titles...are you saying that most of those 500+ titles were in that category?

      Delete
    3. Is Copper leaving at the end of February?

      Delete
    4. Considering it was just renewed this month with other BBC shows, I doubt it. There's currently no indication it's expiring, but if that changes I'll post it.

      Delete
    5. Not so much, Brian. But it might explain why there aren't a lot of titles before 1970 available on Netflix. It's been a while and I would have to look at my old Netflix thread to have a better idea.

      And not all the films are obscure. There's The Candidate, Face in the Crowd, The Great Santini, The Music Man, Summer of 42 and Wait Until Dark to name 6.

      My point is pretty much that Netflix can't afford the bad publicity of another Streamageddon.

      And as for Copper, no mention of expiration dates on Roku or Netflix itself so it's safe for now.

      Delete
    6. Those who are planning on giving Saturday Night Fever a goodbye watching may want to consider pairing it with Tony Manero 2008 (Note: that movie is NOT set to expire as far as I know, but it references SNF)

      Delete
    7. Tony Manero is the second part of a trilogy of films dealing with various points in Chilean history from average people (they share the same director Pablo Larrain).

      Part 1 is Post Mortem which is leaving on the 28th and deals with the political awakening of a morgue worker when his girlfriend disappears. Part 3 is No, which is currently not streaming has Gael Garcia Bernal as someone who works on the No side of a referendum held by Pinochet.

      Delete
    8. I knew that Tony Manero & Post Mortem had the same director (& lead actor too, I think) Brian C., but didn't know they were part of a trilogy. Thanks for the info. Would be interested in seeing part 3 if Netflix ever picks it up. Unfortunately, I think Post Mortem has already expired, on the 20th. My guess based on the first two is they don't seem to be tightly linked plot trilogies in the Star Wars or LOTR sense, but more thematic trilogies, i.e. they can stand alone watched by themselves but are enriched if one sees all 3.

  7. This is weird, these titles, all grade-C horror movies, were added on 2/1 and are listed on the site as expiring on 3/1. Catch 'em while you can!

    1. Sorry, just wanted to point out that this set actually features 35 early Chaplin shorts, from 1914-1918. For some reason they're randomly grouped (not in chronological order) into "episodes" consisting of 2 or 3 films.

    2. Thanks. I've noticed that Netflix's blurbs are often inaccurate.

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

      Delete
    2. I would assume they would have to fix their algorithm before they can add this feature so that it ignores everyone ordering the movie when they see it is going to expire. Because right now they use the statistics to decide if they should bring it back so they will probably want to mark that someone chose it while they were told it was expiring.

  17. 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.

    1. Actually, they DO show as expiring when you search for them on Netflix. I'm not sure why they aren't listed that way for you.

      Delete
    2. I have a streaming only plan, Brian. If you have a different plan that might explain why we get different results. Regardless, it looks like, based on your helpful confirmation that, at least for now they are marked for expiration although Disney titles seem to be among those that do a lot of expiration churning. These were only the ones I came across. Those with youngins might want to take a closer look at some of the other Disney titles. BTW, Brian, your own comprehensive expiration lists are mucho appreciated.

      Delete
    3. No problem, I'm glad to help. Of course, my contributions are mainly based on searching titles from my own watchlist. As I watch more of these titles and remove them from my watchlist, I assume that over time my watchlist will grow smaller and my contribution will also. However, every month I continue to add new titles and my list has remained fairly steady at about 450 or so movies, so we'll see.
