Well, crud. I thought today was the last day to watch Starz items, but they're already gone. Drat.

As I recall, they recently signed a new multi-year deal with Starz that included everything from the Weinstein Company, so they'll be back soon.

Re: Netflix shoots itself in the foot... aka no more free streaming

Update - It seems the article I originally read no longer mentions Starz, and the other articles I've found indicate that Netflix's deal is with TWC directly. Alrighty then.

Yeah Netflix is moving away from movies and more to TV shows it seems. The Stars deal is dead. Netflix will just go directly to the studios if they want certain movies.

TV shows? Do they have HBO streaming?

I doubt HBO will ever make that deal.

Netflix IS beginning to produce content. Not just the Arrested Development stuff, but a couple of other shows.

HBO has a competing service, HBO Go, which is (currently) tied to the sale of subscriptions. There's no way they'll make a deal with Netflix unless HBO GO fails.

And with HBO Go coming to the Xbox this April (and if that succeeds, probably to the PS3 in the future), I don't think we'll be seeing HBO content streaming on Netflix any time soon.

I actually watched my first "movie" on Netflix streaming this week in quite some time. I've been watching nearly exclusively TV shows for the past 8-9 months or so. (I cancelled cable in June). The movie selection is still fairly poor, but the TV selection is mind-boggling. I'm subscribed to the "Netflix Streaming Gems" thread over on AVSforum, and folks update that with new movies they find.


(The movie, by the way, was Suspect Zero, with Aaron Eckhart and Ben Kingsley. Its sci-fi/cop thriller, but I don't really recommend it. 2 out of 5 stars.)

I wish they sold the HBO Go service separately (and had it available on Sony devices). I don't have cable, but would easily ditch Netflix for what they're offering (or, if I had the money, supplement Netflix with it).

They won't sell it separately until the numbers show a majority shifting to IP services over standard cable subs.

I dont have Netflix Stream but friends do and all I have watched was TV shows. TNG, DS9, Star Trek, Rescue Me, Skins, Parks and Rec, Frasier, Archer. I can't remember the last movie I watched.
