Netflix Drops 800 Hours of A&E Content TheWrap
Netflix has dropped about 800 hours of A&E Networks content, including "Storage Wars" and "American Pickers," reports TheWrap.com.
The content was pulled after a contract to stream the content expired, the story notes. About 300 hours that weren't covered in the agreement are still on Netflix, although that contract expires in June.
Netflix wanted greater exclusivity from A&E, and with the two sides unable to reach an agreement, the contract expired, the piece notes. The two sides are still talking and the programming could be restored. A representative for Netflix didn't immediately respond for comment, the story says.
Other programming that was pulled includes “Hoarders” and “Pawn Stars.”
