Love "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire?" You only have until the end of September to stream it and a slew of other movies like "World War Z" as Netflix's deal with Epix is expiring. The Epix movies will now be on Hulu, per Variety.
As Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix, posted Sunday on the Netflix blog, "We have decided not to renew our agreement in the US with Epix, the cable network, which means that some high profile movies including 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire,' 'World War Z' and 'Transformers: Age of Extinction,' will expire at the end of September in the US. If you want to see them on Netflix US, now is the time."
He explains that most of these movies are available on other platforms and that Netflix is focusing on more original content. "Through our original films and some innovative licensing arrangements with the movie studios, we are aiming to build a better movie experience for you... We know some of you will be disappointed by the expiration of the Epix movies. Our goal is to provide great movies and TV series for all tastes, that are only available on Netflix. We're confident you'll enjoy our ever-improving catalogue."
He urges viewers to check out "Narcos," Netflix's new original series about druglord Pablo Escobar and upcoming new content from Adam Sandler. That's right, the controversial "Ridiculous Six," where several Native-American actors stormed off the set in protest.
But wait, there's also Cary Fukunaga's "Beasts of No Nation," Brad Pitt's "War Machine" and a Cambodia-based Angelina Jolie movie, per Variety.
