Why can't I find hardly any of my favorite movies on Netflix



I signed up for Netflix online, not to order movies but just to watch them on my computer. I get one month free then after that they charge me like 8 bucks a month.

Seems I can't find any of my favorite movies, which are also typically more popular ones. For example I just searched for Scarface and it isn't on there.

Is this because I'm still in the "free" trial or do they just not have them? If they don't have them I'm about to cancel my account.

No. They pulled some ol' bull shite where you can't search for any movie now they don't have.

Their online collection is rather poor. You will be able to find some things you like but without the mail-in movie option, your choices will be thin.

But, Netflix had some providers, like Starz, pull out of their partnership

because the studios are actively seeking to destroy Netflix by limiting the availability of their products or pricing them too high.

yup there isn't much on there at all. I'm still in my free trail period but i cancelled cause there isn't much of anything id want to watch. Netflix has the potential to be great and they fell through.

Their streaming selection is kind of poor. If you're just looking for a time killer movie, there are tons of those that are mediocre that you can watch. Some of the documentaries are really good, though. Food, Inc. was really good for example. Also, the TV shows are pretty good, although they typically don't have a lot of seasons for the shows. Workaholics is excellent

I posted a while back on the movie/tv board....you will find a movie you are looking to watch 1% of the time. You have to find movies/shows that are on there rather than looking for something specific you want to watch.

Also, it doesn't matter how old or how good it is. It's not there. Almost to the point of dropping streaming.

Yeah, let's move our whole business to streaming only, and we don't have crap for streaming.

Netflix instant may not have many new releases, but it's still well worth $8 a month.

1. I find plenty of older movies to watch

2. There are more than enough TV shows available that I can watch in order.

3. The documentary section alone is worth the $8/month IMO

re: Why can't I find hardly any of my favorite movies on Netflix


Yeah, cause I want to see Transformers 3.

From the Movie/Tv board thread I posted in...

quote:

We have watched some movies that were amazing on Instant Queue, but I have no reason to do a "Streaming Only" plan.
Tonight, The Right Stuff (1983) was on, and I caught it about 60% through on TCM. Searched for it, not available.

Flipped channels, saw The Dirty Dozen (1967) was on. Search for it, not available.

My wife and started talking about Thunderheart (1992) after we saw Lou Diamond Philips hosting The Dirty Dozen on The Military Channel. She thought he was in it, but I thought it was Val Kilmer (I was right). Not available.
