Several marquee franchise titles are leaving streaming giant Netflix next month.
Netflix — which recently saw daily sign-ups double — will drop a number of movies and television shows, including Austin Powers, Resident Evil, Kindergarten Cop, and Chappelle’s show.
Many fans on social media have already expressed their devastation over cult favorite movies and television shows being pulled from the streamer.
There were three Austin Powers films including: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999), and Austin Powers in Gold Member (2002) starring Beyoncé.
Not Groovy: Several marquee franchise titles are leaving streaming giant Netflix next month, including Austin Powers starring Mike Myers and Beyoncé (pictured in 2002’s Austin Powers in Gold Member).
Another huge franchise that the streaming giant will lose is Resident Evil starring Milla Jovovich. The titles that will be unavailable for streaming are: Resident Evil (2002), Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004), and Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010), Resident Evil: Revenge (2012).
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s Bad Boys films are being dropped, including the 1995 original and the 2003 sequel Bad Boys II.
Classic comedies including 1990’s Kindergarten Cop starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, 2003’s How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey and 2009’s The Hangover will also be hits.
On the television front, the first two seasons of one of the most iconic sketch comedy shows starring Dave Chappelle will be pulled from the platform.
The omission comes at an interesting time as it was reported daily last week
Sign-ups for Netflix surged in the first few days after the streaming giant’s password-sharing crackdown went into effect, new data shows.
After it began warning subscribers about the crackdown on May 23, Netflix had its four single biggest days of US user acquisition on record, according to research firm Antenna, which has been tracking data since 2019.
On both May 26 and May 27, Netflix had nearly 100,000 daily sign-ups, and over the four-day period, average daily sign-ups reached 73,000, up 102 percent from the previous 60-day average.
Not Back from the Dead: Another huge franchise the streaming giant will lose is Resident Evil starring Milla Jovovich. Titles that will be unavailable for streaming are: Resident Evil (2002), Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004; pictured), and Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010), Resident Evil: Revenge (2012)
What will you do? Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s Bad Boys films are also being dropped, including the 1995 original (pictured) and the 2003 sequel Bad Boys II
The news sent the company’s shares up nearly 3 percent to $421.50 in afternoon trading on Friday, June 9.
Before the crackdown, Netflix estimated that more than 100 million households had provided their log-in credentials to people outside their home.
Seeking to boost revenue in a saturated streaming market, Netflix launched its password-sharing crackdown last month — a drastic change for a company that once tweeted ‘love shares a password’.
Under the new rules, US users can add a member outside their home for an additional fee of $8 per month.
Stunners: Classic comedy films will also be hits, including 2003’s How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey (pictured) and 2009’s The Hangover.
Party Pooper: 1990’s Kindergarten Cop starring Arnold Schwarzenegger will also be cut
Funny: On the television front, one of the most iconic sketch comedy shows, Chappelle’s Show starring Dave Chappelle, will be off the platform for the first two seasons.
The strategy appears to have paid off, with new sign-ups surging in late May, even topping previous record numbers seen in the early days of the COVID-19 lockdown, according to Antenna data.
While account cancellations also increased during the May 24-27 period, they did not increase as quickly as new signups, Antenna noted.
The proportion of canceled signups since May 23 was 25.6 percent higher than in the previous 60-day period, the firm said.
