TAS No Longer On Netflix! WTF???
Well, I know this has nothing to do with jj-trek, but I was going to watch some TAS today only to find that it's no longer available on Netflix. Okay now I'm cheezed off! I assume that the rest of the Trek series' will soon follow suit. I don't get it. Are they just renting those series'? Do they have an expiration date? That makes me angry. But I do have the whole series on DVD, so I can still watch it. However, I did enjoy the go anywhere convenience of Netflix. It reminds me of when they had the first six movies on there and then one day they were gone. I like Netflix, but sometimes it sucks.:thumbdown:

No idea. But TV's the same… one minute its there and then poof!

I felt the same way when I was wanting to watch Babylon 5, I go online, and check, and its gone from the Instant Play option... REALLY irritated me.

Netflix did the same thing with Lois & Clark. I was watching it one day and the next day it's gone??? Doesn't make any sense.

Well, they probably have only so much memory/bandwidth at the site, so naturally some movies/shows are going to get rotated in and out. It's quite possible that some shows and movies that don't get so much viewership are the ones that get outed first...since it would be taking up bandwidth where they would otherwise be making money.

And as much as I love some of the shows that have been mentioned in this thread, it's likely that they are not getting near the viewership we'd wish.

Of course, I don't use Netflix.

Not cool...But to be honest, I only watch Deep Space Nine on Netflix. Ugh, that sucks that they got rid of TAS. Ugh...not cool...Not cool at all...

I usually just get stuff sent to me from my service. I don't really use streaming. But I'm sure 'Lois & Clark' will roll back around when 'Man of Steel' gets released.

most likely

I don't use the streaming either. Streaming is the devil. I would guess TAS is still there if you just want to rent the DVDs.
