You may want to clear your calendar for today and tomorrow and get busy catching up on Netflix — before it’s too late. A slew of movies and television shows are set to expire from the online streaming service Jan. 1, including “Titanic” and the soap opera “Dark Shadows,” reports New York Magazine.
“For a while, it was also possible to find out what was expiring, information that was valuable to the Netflix user who maybe wanted to watch something before it disappeared from his or her Instant Queue (which is now called ‘My List’),” the story notes.
The report adds: “Earlier this year, Netflix removed the ability to easily find out in bulk what titles were expiring from its library, which means that users on Reddit and other sites have picked up the slack."
Some of these titles may reappear after a few months or even hours, because of the “vagaries” of Netflix’s contracts, the story notes.
Some of the expiring movies are “Being John Malkovich,” “Braveheart” and “Top Gun,” while expiring television shows include “The Kids in the Hall” and “Saturday Night Live: The 2000s."
