    Those all appear to be shows already on Netflix last I looked-- nice to see them becoming more competitive.

    Actually, Fox has been yanking essentially all of their series off Netflix as their existing agreements expire over an ongoing spat about Netflix poaching staff from Fox. Most of the seasons of Futurama and Bob's Burgers have already gone away as deals expired, along with many other older Fox staples (Firefly among them).

    So I wonder if they're leaving Netflix?

    Shows come and go all the time.

    I wish everything was everywhere. I have Netflix... but I'd need Hulu to watch South Park and Seinfeld.

    The feud has been ongoing, and for the last few months, there's been no new Fox content added. So until it's resolved, it's not subject to the normal ebb and flow. Fox is just letting all agreements run their course and then pulling their content once they expire.

    There's getting to be less and less reason to keep Netflix, at least in my household. Hulu seems to be picking up all the third-party content that Netflix is choosing not to renew.

    Some people do seem to like Netflix's original content... but none of us are in that category. I'll always have fond memories of the old Netflix, though - they were the first.

    Doesn't Southpark show all it's episodes for free on it's own webpage? If not did they at one time?

    Programming aside. I still can’t get over the ugly UI that Hulu has now.

    I was just talking to my wife about how we have Netflix,Hulu,Amazon Prime, and Direct Tv, and how I was looking at all the Queues and I probably have enough content to watch tv 24/7 for the next several years. have no clue when I'm gonna watch it all.

    Still a trojan horse from legacy TV industry to keep us from moving to truly disruptive options.

    They used to.

    Now there are only 30 free episodes of South Park on southparkstudios.com

    The bulk of the collection is on Hulu.

    I'm one of those that like the original content. Can't wait for Stranger Things! Also, OITNB, House of Cards, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt are all shows I like. I've also heard Penny Dreadful is good, but I've yet to watch it.

    Same. Also HBO Go/Now added to one of those for GoT and WestWorld :)

    Netfiix is #2 in Emmy nominations in 2017, right behind HBO.

    Exactly with Direct Tv I have Showtime/Starz/HBO/Cinemax and all their corresponding apps for free. There is so much content available now it's almost humorous to think anybody could watch it all.

    I will say, I really do enjoy the new Apple TV and iPhone TV function, it's not perfect yet, but it's a start to consolidating everything, as soon as Amazon Prime gets added to the Apple TV, no reason to turn the device off.

    Let me guess:
    Eddy Cue was the highest bidder - but was expelled for intolerable behavior ?

    Yes at $7.99/month. But there’s a commercial free option for $11.99/month

    I actually pay $5.99. I don’t mind the ads. I got a promo offer a long time ago. It’s $5.99 for a certain amount of months. Right before my promo ends I cancel the service. In the box where it ask why you are canceling I just say I’m not paying more for their service. I wait till they send me another promo offer, and pick them up again for the same price.

    The new UI is the epitome of form over function. They tried so hard to go to the minimal modern cliche look that it makes using it a chore.

    Happy to see new content. Cut cable with the new Apple TV and haven't looked back to cable since.

    They can't, until you've seen everything you want to see on Netflix.
