Several readers have reported that Netflix stopped showing expiration dates for Netflix streaming titles, and the Feedfliks blog confirmed the change:
Until now, the API provided the exact expiry dates but Netflix has now made the decision to *not* provide the exact expiry dates unless a title is expiring in the next two weeks. For all other titles, Netflix will show a far-out, made-up date irrespective of whether it expires 3 weeks out or 6 months out. On FeedFliks, we are representing this far-out date with 1st Jan 2025 which explains why 95% of your Instant Queue titles seem to expire on that exact date.We hear all of you writing in and expressing frustration at this loss of information that was previously available. We’ve checked with the API folks and they have communicated that this is a done decision for now. We’re as disappointed as you all but this is now beyond our availability to influence. We’ve tried. To get in touch with Netflix’s Customer Service, please call 866-716-0414.
Thanks to Splarka, Kyle, Matt, and everyone else for sending this in.
