Netflix: Show Calendar?

I never know when shows are arriving or expiring on Netflix. Is there a website somewhere that shows the schedule for this?

I basically only know when I catch a news article like the one about Clone Wars coming out today.

But I *also* stumbled across The Guild (yay!) and Glee (meh) showing up today!

Unfortunately, Netflix does not publish information on what is expiring until it's 2 weeks from expiration.

I don't think they have any standard method for notifying you when something arrives on Netflix, either.

Re: Netflix: Show Calendar?

^ Yep. Instantwatcher used to do it, but then Netflix changed how they revealed expiring titles, and so now no one knows until they're trying to cram it in before Netflix pulls it off their list.

Re: Netflix: Show Calendar?

Why don't they post the schedules more in advance to generate interest and publicity??? I don't get that. You encourage people to watch the expiring shows, and you raise anticipation for what's coming next.

what i don't get is why they only have the first two seasons of The Twilight Zone and the last several seasons of Law and Order Criminal Intent.

This is what I use for new shows. Still don't know of a way to find out what is expiring.

Publicly announcing they are losing content is a bad thing. And I'm sure these deals are done from month to month on what type of content is going to be airing.

They're also not an ad-based business. The less you actually watch, the better, as long as you maintain your subscription.

They are a customer-service business, though. Certainly, for years, Netflix did really well through the good will it earned by just being more reasonable than the competition. Granted, they blew some of that good will when they split the stream and DVD services, but they might have happier, more supportive customers if those customers could better plan their viewing schedule.

Not really. To build on what Mister Fandango said, they want to be thought of as a utility: one month's subscription isn't any better or worse than another month's; the important thing is that it's a bill that must be paid, just like water or energy. Trumpeting new content suggests that you have a choice to subscribe to Netflix rather than Hulu Plus or Amazon Prime, and they don't want to be thought of in terms of choice.

Furthermore, even if they only announce new content, that would inevitably encourage people to whine about why they don't have other content, or why some content went away. For $9 a month, you get streaming, which is what it is, period. You want total choice, subscribe to discs.
