Last March Netflix announced that South Park Seasons 1 - 9 would be available on Netflix streaming, and reader Honest Abe noticed that the show will only be available until 4/16/2010.
Since Netflix streaming (and other services like Hulu) are new, we'll be seeing a lot of experimentation by the studios. The problem is that the studios still make the majority of their revenue on DVD sales, so we'll be seeing a lot of titles be available for streaming for a limited time. Netflix also has a limited budget for movies and TV shows -- even HBO with more than 40 million subscribers has a limited number of movies available each month. It'll be interesting to see how Netflix selects titles over the next few years as they grow.
What show or movie that has been removed from Netflix streaming do you miss? What would you like Netflix to add to streaming?
