Netflixenvelopes

As of Friday, Sept. 21 Neflix lost A&E and the History channel this is the biggest loss in content since the loss of Starz and Encore.  The loss in content represents more than 40 shows and 800 hours on content.  Netflix has made a comment in saying the viewer ship and demand did not match up to the licensing cost.

Shows no longer available via streaming are:

  • History’s Ice Road Truckers
  • Pawn Stars
  • American Pickers
  • Dog the Bounty Hunter
  • Gene Simmons: Family Jewels
  • Hoarders and Intervention

With Netflix loosing and cutting content, users may decide to take their streaming business elsewhere. Unfortunately for the company who pioneered streaming has A LOT of competition including

  • Amazon Prime
  • Hulu
  • HBO
  • Redbox – Verizon
  • Blockbuster

These are just to name a few I am sure if we search we can come up with a lot more.  The one edge that Netflix has which it CANNOT loose is it has a client for almost any device, TV or gaming console.  Which is one of the reasons why I think the company has hung on and is still one of the biggest players in the game.

For Netflix sake I hope they have their direction back and do not make any more bad decisions like Quickster.  I have to say being a Netflix user myself even though they have lost a lot of content they have added as well.
