Miramax Deal with Netflix Expires Leaving Hundreds of Movies in Jeopardy

Netflix has always seemed to have a decent streaming library when it came to both film and television, but as 2016 has trekked along there have been some changes. You might have noticed that a lot of titles on Netflix have been leaving lately and it’s sadly not coincidence. In addition to losing contracts with studios such as BBC, IFC, and other various television networks, Netflix just ended a 5-year contract with Miramax on June 1st. This end of a Netflix era will definitely have an impact with viewers as we could see over 400 titles leave the streaming service throughout June and July.

This all might be very upsetting to us but it’s all part of Netflix’s plan for the future. As they continue to create and promote their original content, we will continue to see less and less third-party content. Granted, Miramax has always given us more B-movie content and lower budget experiments, but they have also given us some great titles like The Aviator, The Crow, Trainspotting, Good Will Hunting, the Quentin Tarantino library, and the Kevin Smith library.

Now, we can’t forget that there is still a possibility that some of the Miramax library could be retained if both parties decide to renew the contract either in full or in some capacity. It’s also worth noting that just because the contract is expiring doesn’t mean all of the films will be lost, but it’s pretty likely. The end of the BBC contract was a pretty big blow to viewers with all the lost content.

Below is a list of all the Miramax films eligible for expiration with the end of the contract:
