Last chance for Starz Netflix movies

02.27.2012

If you're a fan of ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS, prepare to be very upset.

Last year it was reported that Starz would be ending their agreement with Netflix at the end of Feburary 2012. Now it's the last couple of days to instantly stream some great films via Netflix. Be sure to check your Instant Queue to see which films won't be available after Feb 28th. The following are some selected fan-favorites films that will no longer be available once the Starz deal expires.

Netflix has been battling bad press since several changes to service last year confused subscribers. The first being a rate-increase, and and announce split between their instant streaming, and DVDs-by-mail service. The former change was later canceled.

Netflix currently has 25 million subscribers, many of which use the hybrid streaming, and DVD service that costs approximately $19 a month. While still much cheaper than renting multiple films at video stores, or using on-demand cable, Netflix recently lost millions of subscribers because of that late 2011 rate increase.

It should be noted that these films will still be avaiable via DVD-by-mail. Head over to Movie Fan Central to suggest to others your favorite Starz films that we shouldn't miss before they are gone.

Netflix is only decent for their tv shows selections. Their movie selection is down right embarrassing. If your a 1 star B-movie fan then its golden but if you want new releases then stick to Red Box or Vudu or On-Demand.

Haven't streamed in ages. Usually stick to the classics and occasional documentaries.

Still digging Netflix streaming...

They just added Season 2 of Archer and all those 70s sexploitation women in prison films including The Big Bird Cage.

Even losing those Starz movies it still beats the heck out of the 30 bucks a month I had been dropping on HBO and Showtime.

I only dig indie and foreign stuff. Looks like streaming might be another fallen format just like VHS, Laserdisc
and HD DVD.

I totally agree! I think streaming video will prove to be a fad...just like MMA or the Internet.

I gave up on Netflix a while back

I put my Netflix on hiatus shortly after the price hike. I can't be too mad at them about it on one hand, but I didn't like how they automatically kept me upgraded to the DVD and streaming service. I rarely streamed stuff to begin with - ironically, it was usually Arrested Development and South Park, which I already own both of in their series' entirety on DVD - so I basically was paying double and never once used the DVD service. I initially signed up after an ex-girlfriend of mine constantly

I initially signed up after an ex-girlfriend of mine constantly talked about renting movies through them, but I didn't think their streaming service had enough quality films to make it worthwhile, and once they lost Criterion and Starz I figured it'd be better to cut my losses.

As far as I'm concerned I'll only resume my membership fees when Arrested Development Season 4 shows up for streaming in 2013.
