Starz is nixing streaming content on Netflix.

Which is why I dumped the streaming part of Netflix. Studios are not going to let Netflix expand in this area, because they smell mooooney. The streaming options will always lag seriously behind their DVD library, and the deep library is a major reason why I bother with Netflix at all.

This decision is a result of our strategy to protect the premium nature of our brand by preserving the appropriate pricing and packaging of our exclusive and highly valuable content. With our current studio rights and growing original programming presence, the network is in an excellent position to evaluate new opportunities and expand its overall business.
The "premium nature of our brand"? Who do they think they are, HBO?

Get a grip, Starz.
You wish you could move like this.
I has a blag.
