  1. Major props to this blog! I love watching random, obscure movies on Netflix, and lately I've just been watching films that I know are about to expire. Thanks to this site I've watched Hobo With a Shotgun, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Spring 1941, Headhunter, Choose, Dream Home, Off and Running, Miss Gulag, Aisha Tyler is Lit, No One Killed Jessica, A Wednesday, Oye Lucky Lucky Hoye and Life in a Metro all in the last week or so! lol

    1. That's great to hear. And thanks to all the commenters on this page, since I'll be the first to admit that none of those titles were "officially" listed above. ;-) Glad to see you've found a system that works!

    2. How can they drop Battlestar Gallactica, a classic sci-fi show? Did they spend so much money on the rights to The Blaclklist that the can't afford to stream BSG after 10/1?

    3. I know, it's a real shame. And it does make one wonder.

  2. 8/24
    The Moo Man


    The Nature of Existence Companion Series

    Durham County
    Inspector Morse
    Nanny 911

    Dawson’s Creek

    1. Why can't Netflix hang on to great crime thrillers like Durham County and Love/Hate, which appear to have migrated to Hulu. Also disappointed that the first three of four seasons of Spiral, a terrific French crime thriller, seem to have disappeared without warning. (The first three seasons are--surprise--on Hulu.). While Netflix gives notice when an entire series is leaving, they don't appear to give any notice when they drop one or more seasons of a series.

    2. You're right, they certainly don't make it easy for us in terms of giving proper notice. Which is why we have to do our best documenting those disappearances here. As for what Netflix does or doesn't hang onto, I'm guessing it all comes down to popularity vs. cost. The studios and distributors, with their exorbitant streaming fees, certainly don't help matters.

  3. Samurai Champloo expires September 27th

  4. 9/22/14 The Very Best of Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan

  5. Dr. Zhivago (series, not the movie) shows up as expiring on 09/30/2014. Last day to watch 09/29/2014.

    Also, pretty sure most people know this already, but in case not, if you want to squeeze in one last movie, if you start streaming it a few minutes before it's set to expire on midnight you can continue to watch it past midnight. If you pause it it will resume but if you close the browser window / tab or leave it paused until it times out (about 15 - 20 minutes I think) then it will no longer stream.

    1. Thanks for that tidbit. I was watching "The Appartment" on 8/31 using the TV's Netflix App. I finished it before midnight. Without restarting the App, I was able to restart it after midnight. It was gone the next morning.

      Does anyone know if midnight refers to the local time zone or to a specific time zone?

    2. It's the local time (unlike Hulu, which I believe is EST).

  6. Checked My List today, Initial D and Law & Order both have "Until 10/1/2014"
    The original Law & Order, going to be gone! T_T Well, I know what I'm doing this month...

    1. Well, the same goes for Law & Order SVU, Law & Order Criminal Intent.
      I guess it's not that big a deal when Netflix never had ALL the seasons to start with. (like wth was up with that anyways)

    2. They did have more seasons of SVU. I think it was maybe 2 years ago when they had seasons 1-7 of SVU, now they just have seasons 8-12 ... until October anyway.

    3. Is there any chance this just means the currently available seasons are expiring, and they're rotating the others back in?

    4. It would be nice to think so, but I wouldn't count on it.

    1. How do you find out what is expiring so early? I know the apps on the video game consoles(Xbox 360 and so on) alert you earlier than the website, but it still hasn't updated with these expiring titles.

    2. Well, first of all, I have Amazon Prime. Amazon alerts you to expiring movies about a month in advance, and as it turns out, a lot of those movies are also on Netflix and expire at the same time. I just do a search for the titles and when the search results come up you'll see something like "Availability: streaming until 10/1/2014". You see, Netflix does alert you about a month in advance just like Amazon does, but you have to do some looking in order to find the notification.

      Second, I go through my entire watchlist (about 400 titles at any given time) and do the manual search I just described. It takes a while to finish, but the result is that I have a complete list of the expiring titles right at the beginning of the month and can use the rest of the month to decide which ones to watch.

    3. Okay, I understand now. Thanks for the great work, it is very helpful.
