Re: Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis dropped from Netflix in U.S.

Both shows have been on Instant Watch for years, so the contract permitting it to stream has simply expired. SGU was added last, IIRC, during season 2, so that's why it-and the movies, are still up. Not renewing the license is generally a tactic by the studios-they want more money to renew a property, so they don't negotiate before expiration to try and get the best deal they can. And now, with competing services in operation, they get to play one against the other to obtain favorable increases.
