Netflix Streaming Library South Park

Netflix on Wednesday lost almost 1,800 titles from its streaming library as licensing deals with studios like MGM, Warner Bros. and Universal expired. Titles now removed from the catalog include all 15 seasons of South Park, classic James Bond films like Dr. No and Goldfinger, and Woody Allen’s Stardust Memories. A Netflix spokesperson told The Verge that “Netflix is a dynamic service, we constantly update the TV shows and movies that are available to our members.” He added that as of May 1st, the company added more than 500 new titles such as ParaNorman and The Hunger Games. The spokesperson said that a “vast majority” of the expired titles were older features from an expired deal with Epix, noting that “this ebb and flow happens all the time.”

UPDATE: Seasons of South Park can be streamed until May 29th.
