We’re huge, no strike that, massive fans of Netflix’s streaming service. So large in fact that we dropped our cable company’s TV service in favor of the $8 a month service. But now one of the selling points that drew us into Netflix’s sticky web of awesome videos is going the way of the Dodo bird.
What are we talking about? Starz TV shows and movies. For a while there Netflix had instant access to all of Starz’s content. The deal was struck as a work around to the royalty and licensing debacle that comes with movies, but now the company wants to delay the delivery of Starz content to Netflix by 90 days. That means no more “Party Down” episodes on the fly and most certainly no new releases.
On a positive note, we recently discovered that a large number of James Bond movies will begin streaming on Netflix as of April 1st. Perhaps that will help you dry your tears?
