Some Streaming Content To Be Purged From Netflix On Jan 1st.

One of the funniest things about the internet is that no matter how hard you try and keep a lid on things the more random news comes out of it. Earlier this year, when Netflix did a “purge” of some of their streaming content, which the media over-hyped as “streamaggedon”, Netflix closed off its API that made it impossible for people to see when new titles would appear and expire on the service.

While the media like to knock Netflix for these purges that shouldn’t come as a shock, many of the titles that are available on the service that are being purged are something you either own or don’t care enough about to purchase for your own collection.

So it comes as a surprise when a list of slated movies and television series were nearing their contract-ending date appeared on Reddit. Classics like Roman Holiday, Serpico and The Odd Couple, as well as television series like Dark Shadows and The Kids in the Hall.

While many of you are going to bitch and moan about the purge, it should be pointed out how many of those movies have you seen on the service or, more importantly, how many of those movies did you know were even available on the service?

Here is the complete list, from Reddit, and voice your complaints in the usual place.
