Many are from Warner Bros. since it launched its own Warner Archive Instant service
Netflix is giving a lengthy list of old titles the boot from its streaming service starting at midnight tonight.
has released a list of nearly 1,000 movie titles that will expire starting May 2. One reason for the purge is the fact that "hundreds" of titles from the Warner Bros. library will be placed in Warner Archive Instant, which is a classic film service launched by the company.
Many of those titles include pre-1986 films from MGM and United Artists.
Warner Bros. insisted that its launch of Warner Archive Instant isn't the reason for Netflix's purge of its video library. Netflix's Joris Evers said that the streaming giant licenses movies on an exclusive basis, and added that many of the movies expiring at midnight were part of a deal Netflix had with Epix.

You are absolutely right. This is nothing new. They've been doing this since they existed. Some titles are up for mere months. I'm glad they got Top Gear UK on there now due to high demand but I wish they would have the current season instead of always 1-2 seasons behind.
