As with all VOD services and other similar digital content services, Netflix’s streaming platform adds new series, movies and documentaries every month, such as all the releases for January 2021 that open the new year.
But just as they add, they also take away, and this is the content that we will no longer see on the VOD platform starting this month. Some are gone and others are ready, so you still have time to see them.
Why does Netflix remove content every month
But why are Netflix series and movies removed? The platform licenses series and films from studios and content providers around the world, and those licenses may expire if they are not renewed. According to Netflix, “we do our best to preserve the content you want to see, but we acquire license rights for series and movies for a certain period of time, not indefinitely, so some titles are no longer available on Netflix.”
If a series or movie that you like is going to stop being available on Netflix, this means that “our license agreement with the content provider is about to end. Every time a series or movie is going to expire, we evaluate whether to renew or not using the same criteria that we apply for possible new content ”.
