Netflix takes down some fan favorites.

As many have noticed, several beloved shows have been taken off of one of the top streaming services in the world. Netflix.

Netflix is home to over 3,000 movies and a plethora of shows, but with that, several are constantly leaving to make room for new arrivals.

Many fans have already mourned the losses of their favorite shows and movies such as Parks and Recreation, The Addams Family, Green Room, several Disney movies, Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Thirteen, The Bachelor, Zodiac, West Side Story, and more.

Most of these shows or movies were removed for rights issues and can now be found on their own streaming services. For example, most Disney or NBC-owned shows can now be found on Disney+ or Peacock (by NBCuniversal).

The problem with these other services, though, is that they add
an additional cost to your monthly Netflix subscription fee. If one is paying for himself rather than being part of a family account, this can turn out to be a wild and expensive inconvenience.

A pro to Netflix, however, is their patented Netflix Originals. So many excellent shows and movies are Netflix Originals and can’ t
be watched anywhere else. Some notable titles include Stranger Things, Bojack Horseman, Big Mouth, The Crown, Queen’ s Gambit, Peaky Blinders, Ozark, Master of None, Glow, 13 Reasons Why, Selena The Series, Atypical, The Great British Baking Show, and John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch.

Netflix has been meeting people’s entertainment needs since 1997. It continues to be among
the top streaming services in the world with over 183 million paying subscribers as of March 2020.

Unfortunately, bustling business means that Netflix is constantly expanding, and that means that they may occasionally have to remove a fan-favorite show or movie.

This sad news does bring benefits, though. Netflix is coming out with several new series and movies that are sure to measure up to the adored films they are replacing.
