Re: Netflix Instant Queue Wiped Out

^Aren't they going off Instant Watch along with all the Fox and Whedon material? I've seen several sources saying that this is an end of contract thing and that is why they are going. A lot of shows do have some sort of automatic renewal and reappear, but I thought Netflix was timing the departure of the Fox et al shows to coordinate with the new inclusions of all the CBS back catalog material forthcoming.

Is this just an April Fools Joke? I thought it was confirmed and concrete that the Fox material was going off streaming for good?

Re: Netflix Instant Queue Wiped Out

Almost all of their titles say ...until 4/1/11 or something if they're going off. Nothing like that on TXF.

It's hard to tell. Netflix announcing that it was going to begin producing original content has been a game-changer in the market. Prior to that, it was simply a content re-seller. Now, it's a competitor, which is why HBO and Showtime have ended their deals and begun their own streaming services, and Starz has altered its contract.

I like the grouping together of tv shows. Cuts down on the scrolling when I'm trying to find something in my queue. I'm always having to go past all the seasons of the X-files, all the Married With Children seasons, etc.

Re: Netflix Instant Queue Wiped Out

I found Cheers, Young Indiana Jones, Twin Peaks and Andy Griffith.
Twilight Zone, Star Trek, Wings and Frasier aren't available yet, and so far Firefly and other FOX shows are still in the queue.

Re: Netflix Instant Queue Wiped Out

Looks like I spoke too soon. My Netflix Queue shows Cheers and the other shows I added, while my Roku queue is about 40 titles short in that department. Great.

I still have my Bones and Buffy and Angel. Firefly is next on my list and it's still on! April Fools, I guess. I never learn. I'm an idiot.

Re: Netflix Instant Queue Wiped Out

I just noticed that while the X-Files still appears on my instant queue on the website, it's gone from my instant queue on PS3. However, I can still find it via the search function. Also, anything that I've added to my instant queue on the website this morning (such as MacGyver and Mission: Impossible) isn't showing up on my instant queue on PS3. And so far, I've tried twice to add something to my instant queue on PS3 and both times it's failed and told me to seek help on the website.

Re: Netflix Instant Queue Wiped Out

Hmm. So the CBS material is there all well and good, but some Fox shows aren't working on all devices? Maybe it is just a pull down and relist in a few days? All my Buffy et al says expired April 1. On the PS3 should you sign in and out again and see if it resets?

Agreed we'll have to wait for the jokes to pass and for them to get their act together this weekend. I really hope we don't have to manually re- enter every single thing we want, bulked seasons or not we had 200 and some things in our queue!

And just think, we still need to wait for them to fitz again when they try and add the individual instant watch queues and more customizations.

Re: Netflix Instant Queue Wiped Out

Not quite. On the Roku box, none of the newly authorized CBS shows (Cheers, Young Indiana Jones, et al) appear in the queue on my Roku box even though they appear in my Netflix queue. So I search for them and play them from the results engine. Right now, they only work half the time. Sometimes I can select an episode of Cheers (as an example) and play it, but other times I select an episode and it just sits there instead of playing. This is on Netflix's end, and they need to work on their streaming APIs, because I hear this is happening on Apple TV as well.

God help me if I have to re-input every show I have in my queue (I have 400+ shows and movies).
