If you just got a shiny new Android TV, phone, or tablet you probably downloaded the Netflix app for it. Maybe you were gifted a Netflix subscription. Or maybe you already have Netflix and there is no Holiday tie-in I can make. Whatever the case may be, a bunch of titles are being removed from Netflix real soon.

Netflix regularly adds and removes movies and TV shows from their service. On January 1st they will be removing around 65 titles (Netflix doesn’t list them all, but places like the What’s On Netflix Now? blog find more). Here is the list. Get some hot cocoa and start watching!

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.

This is Google’s first ‘complete’ prototype of its self-driving car

  1. wow….wonder why are losing some of those….they are pretty awesome titles

  2. There are some good movies on that list :o

  3. Odd they are losing only one or two titles in a series of movies. Why are they just losing a random movie in a series?

  4. At least two or three of those will be back on Netflix by April. I wonder if all these streaming contracts are as big a headache for Netflix as it sounds like it would be.

  5. K hope they’re not being pulled due to legal ramifications. Never seen so many titles pulled at once.

    1. It’s more than usual, but then they must had a lot of deals that end at the end of the year.

  6. I know it’s a slow news day and all, but come on Phandroid! There’s already a number of sites that post what’s leaving Netflix and what’s coming to Netflix every month, and this has absolutely zero to do with Android.

    1. I see where you are coming from, but if you’ve been hanging around here for awhile, you’ll see they cover things that can be done on an android; like Netflix. Plus, some of us only come here for our tech news.

    2. And they even forced you to read it! Oh, wait….

    3. I should query for the text “come on Phandroid!”.

  7. Also Nowhere Boy and a bunch of other Woody Allen movies besides Manhattan: A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy, Interiors, Shadows and Fog, Bananas, Alice

  8. They’re removing Spaceballs!!!!! *cancels Nexflix account*

    1. Seriously. WTF

  9. Boyz n the hood… Are they crazy?

  10. This is a key reason, in my humble opinion, why streaming can’t yet beat actual discs or purchased movies/music. I’ve run into this with both movies and music – when I decide to watch a movie (or listen to an song/album) that I know was available before and it’s no longer there for streaming. Maybe it will come back at some point, but in other cases I never see it again. It’s frustrating.

    1. That is why I view Netflix more as an alternative on-demand movie channel with a better selection. And just like a regular movie channel, eventually movies will be cut from the offering.

  11. So, why are they removing them exactly?

    1. License ended or just not popular enough to warrant the cost

  12. And (with the right addons) XBMC can play all of those and no bullshit titfortat contracts required.

  13. Seriously even braveheart and gladiator dafuq. This is one of the reasons why I still download movies.

  14. You can always catch these titles on different Netflix regions. To change your Netflix region, you have to follow these steps

  15. There’s a way to get what you want when you want. Its somewhere out there.

  16. No not Big Trouble in Little China!

  17. why does Netflix remove movies? I would think they would want to have as many as possible.

    1. those movies aren’t free you know, they have to pay to keep them

      1. and sometimes the rights holders, won’t renew the contract with netflix.
        or netflix says, 10 people watched these this year, and it cost us $10,000, its not worth renewing.

  18. So many classics on the list that should never be removed.

  19. this is one of the reasons i canceled my netflix subscription. If i want to see a movie, i rent or buy. Simple done. I know the movie industry wants that, but 2 hours of flicking thru choices to decide there is nothing i want to watch is not good entertainment for me.
