Today in "Netflix is losing a lot of its streaming library again" news: Netflix is losing a lot of its streaming library again

As demanded by Netflix’s convoluted karmic membership plan, the company’s promising recent deal with The Weinstein Company requires that it first send back all of its Starz content, stuffing nearly 800 titles in a metaphorical big red envelope as the companies’ partnership dissolves on February 29. The end of Netflix’s contract with Starz means an end to a huge chunk of its streaming library, with titles like Scarface, Young Frankenstein, Toy Story 3, Vertigo, Big Trouble In Little China, and Beetlejuice—to name just a very, very few—vanishing from your Watch Instantly options in the next 24 hours. And of course, it also means the end of being able to watch Party Down on there, so if you’re still trying to finish the series, consider faking a stomach ailment and ditching work to go get it done.
