Netflix will lose multiple movies to focus on exclusive content
The famous online streaming company Netflix confirmed through its official blog that it will not renew the licenses of many popular movies in order to focus on their exclusive content. Among the movies you will lose from your catalog are The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, World War Z, Transformers: Age of Extinction, among other. However, it is not all bad news, because users of this service will have the entire month of September to watch these movies before they completely disappear from the Netflix content catalog.
Netflix doesn’t want to have the same things everyone else has
This news does not come as a surprise, as exclusive Netflix content has proven to be very successful in recent years. This content is based on series such as House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Marvel’s Daredevil, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and several films that will be released in the coming months such as Beasts of No Nation (starring Idris Elba | and directed by Cary fukunaga), Ridiculous six (starring Adam Sandler, Terry Crews, among other famous comedians) and many other series and movies including other 3 Marvel superheroes (Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage) who will also be connected to the Avengers Cinematic Universe.
Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos commented as follows in the official statement:
“Although many of these movies are popular, they are also available through an extensive number of cable channels and other subscription services for as long as they are on Netflix, as well as being tied to the same licensing terms. . Through our original films and some groundbreaking licensing agreements with film studios, we want to build a better film experience for you. “
Basically, they are abandoning mainstream content that can be found elsewhere to focus on creating more original content. In this way, they give their consumers a better reason to pay a monthly access fee.
