    No big deal for me. I hardly use Netflix to watch movies, I use it to watch old TV shows like all the Star Treks, Original Hawaii Five-O, Rockford Files, Stargate and BattleStar Galatica. Then they have tons of British Tv shows and the kids watch all the Disney, Nick and PBS kids shows,

    So losing Starz will mean nothing for us, and in 2013 they will be getting Dreamworks.

    Yeah, same here. I personally use Netflix for Death Note, and the old Mighty Morphing Power Rangers. I do watch the occasional action thriller and asian fighting films (IP Man, anyone?). My brother also enjoys watching tons of Mr. Bean. I don't think this lost of some movies will affect much.

    I enjoy a Netflx account on a near daily basis. I recently read that the now defunct Netflix contract with Starz only represented 2% of viewership demand. Personanlly, for me, movies have sucked puke since a long time ago. I subscribed to netflix because of the deal with Saban's library of Power Rangers along with the vast array of sci-fi!

    I gotta say my dad was pretty disappointed about this because he had a lot of movies he wanted to watch and did watch. Personally doesn't bother me I just use mine for anime like a lot of you it seems.

    It's really not a big deal... If you read the article the movies/shows that were removed, in total, accounted for 2% of the items streamed... Though it is a bummer that I won't be able to stream the mext season of Party Down or Spartacus.
