Netflix continues its transformation from streaming platform to glorified HBO competitor, adding dozens of original titles in April while losing lots of its licensed catalogue. If you’re underwhelmed by Netflix’s own work and you were in this for the classic film library, it might be time to unsubscribe.

Classic Hacks: How To Get American Netflix In Australia

Since it launched in 2015, the Australian version of Netflix has been adding a steady stream of content each month. While the selection of movies and TV shows is getting better, it still pales in comparison to the US version due to national licencing deals.

Licensed movies coming to Netflix in April include All the President’s Men, Snatch, Spy Kids, The Fifth Element, The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, and Pineapple Express.

Season 7 of New Girl is coming too, but almost all the TV shows arriving on Netflix this month are Netflix originals, including Ultraman, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2, a new season of She-Ra, and nature doc Our Planet. There’s also a new comedy special from Kevin Hart.

Netflix isn’t losing any major TV shows this month, but it is losing valuable movies. In April, Netflix loses American Pie, Heat, Silver Linings Playbook, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Happy Feet, every iteration of Clone Wars, and eleven Bond films. Damn. And I didn’t know that high-budget web series Video Game High School was even on Netflix, but it’s leaving on April 13.
