FOX Is Pulling Most of Its Shows from Netflix

For some time now FOX has been pulling its shows from Netflix. Now it’s not just big names such as “American Dad,” and “Bob’s Burgers.” It’s pulling its lesser-known shows too. We are seeing “Terra Nova,” “Raising Hope,” “Sons of Tucson”, and more leaving Netflix in September.

Recently FOX has been moving most of its shows to Hulu, a streaming service that it owns about a third of.

I had no idea American Dad and Bob's Burgers were some of Netflix's "big names".

"It's" is Fox, not Netflix. Fox is pulling the shows, not Netflix.

I was responding to E Unit saying those shows were Netflix's big names. I was just saying the article said they were Fox's big names.

Confirmed by Disney, they are pulling all Marvel/SW movies in 2019 to put on their own service: http://www.darkhorizons.com/star-war...ix-for-disney/

Hmm, will I have to buy a copy of Moana for my kids, or will something else have caught their interest by then? There was a cliff-like drop in their interest in Frozen once they could watch Moana every day.

It is, but it sounds like the major got a lot of mileage out of Frozen.

Sounds like Netflix might be preparing to cut back on spending for content.

I do think they should be more conscious about all these Netflix original shows they're greenlighting. They've had several failed shows recently and a lot aren't creating much buzz.

Another problem is that many studios and networks don't want to do business with them anymore and are creating their own streaming services or going with alternative services, so Netflix is forced to spend money on creating expensive original content than being able to acquire quality shows and movies.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

I tried to watch An American Werewolf In London and in the opening scenes all of the night time sky scenes look like the white noise on a tv screen...really nasty looking, took me out of the film and I gave up on it. Can anyone confirm if things get better once you are past those scenes? I guess I could try watching it again and fast forwarding, but since I am at work if anyone has watched the film on Netflix any info would be appreciated.

Edited to add: Using a Tivo Bolt (white box first gen version) client, and being viewed on a less than $1,000 4K LG...still, I spent an hour doing a hardcore calibration (i.e., a real calibration, not just relying on pre-set options) and everything else I play on the TV looks great.

Are you sure it was Netflix? I can't find it on US Netflix. Are you using a different region?

It's available on Amazon Prime and Hulu.

Wow...I guess it was one of the titles pulled in Sept., and I must have tried watching at the end of August, because it was definitely on Netflix. Curious, have you seen the PQ on Prime/Hulu? The opening scenes really were that bad on Netlix. I wonder if they will bring it back with a newly mastered edition that eliminates my gripe.

Netflix is raising its prices for the first time in two years, increasing the cost of its most popular plan by $1 to $10.99 monthly.

Subscribers of the $11.99 premium plan, which bumps the number of simultaneous screens up to 4 from 2 (as in the standard plan) and provides 4K video, will see an increase of $2 to $13.99.

Friday Night Lights, one of the best shows on TV in the last decade IMO, was dropped from Netflix last week.

One of the reasons why I'm glad I own all 5 seasons on DVD.
