Netflix Is Deleting 40 Movies And TV Shows In July

Netflix Australia’s licensing agreements keep expiring. This means that a swathe of movies and TV shows are being unceremoniously dumped from the service each month. Sadly, July has harvested a bumper crop of deleted content – with 40 titles destined for the chopping block this Sunday.

The good news is that all Netflix Originals are here to stay – this includes popular TV shows like Stranger Things, House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black. Rather, the shows that are being deleted are all third-party titles from other networks and studios.

The list below comes courtesy of the New On Netflix website and are based on expiring licence agreements. While some licences do get renewed by Netflix from time to time, it appears the following titles weren’t so lucky.

Included below are the exact dates that these movies and TV shows are slated to disappear – so make sure you watch them before the nominated cut-off. We’ve also included a synopsis for each title.

Our personal recommendations are Goodfellas, The King of Comedy, Contagion and Gremlins – check ’em out while you still can! On the TV front, the biggest loss this week is Entourage (you have until July 14 to binge the full season.)
