When Netflix Australia launched in 2015, it promised that no content would be deleted month-to-month. Those days are now over. As licensing agreements begin to expire, more and more content is beginning to disappear from the service.
This month’s casualties include Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, American Sniper, Knock Knock, Children of Men and the critically acclaimed sci-fi series The Expanse. Watch them while you’ve still got the chance!
The following list – which comes courtesy of the New On Netflix website – consist of third-party content that Netflix pays a licencing fee to show on its streaming platform. (Netflix Originals aren’t going anywhere, thankfully.) Included below are the dates when these movies and TV shows are slated for deletion – so make sure you watch them before the nominated cut-off.
