Netflix loses A&E, History series


So, about those A&E series that you have had camping in your Netflix instant queue for ages...sorry.

Netflix confirmed earlier today that dozens of shows from A&E Networks and History disappeared from its streaming services, as the deals that Netflix had to stream the shows expired and, at this juncture, have not been renewed. At least 40 series have vanished with the expiration.

- A&E

The History channel had plenty of educational content, as did Sony and some (for younger audiences) on Disney. Actually, I think that is the sad part, not pawn truckers, especially sad if they drop NatGeo too. “Word World”, “Liberties Kids”, “The Universe”, all gone now. Along with many documentaries. If you browse the “kids” section now, it is all trash. Raising prices while dropping content does not make sense. I would pay more to have this content back which might force the move to huluplus and amazonprime.

Netflix doesn't intend to lose its customers; greedy networks demanding far more money are. I'm sure this will cut down on Netflix's user base by a small amount, but many of us just don't care. The shows are still available on DVD, via Netflix. As for the shows being taken off of instant, well lets see. I can leave my $9 a month Netflix subscription due to the lack of History Channel, and then... pay $119 for Comcast, and get the History Channel back. Or, I can just use Wikipedia and Britannica Online, to read all the history articles I want, and ignore a "History" Channel that brought us pawn wars, aliens building the pyramids, and old-men-drive-trucks-through-cold-places, or whatever that show's called.
