Netflix to lose Hunger Games and Transformers
Streaming service Netflix is losing Hunger Games and Transformers as it will not renew its deal with Epix that will expire at the end of September.
Big movies like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Transformers: Age of Extinction, World War Z, Star Trek: Into Darkness, among others will not be available on Netflix beginning in October, reported Aceshowbiz.
“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,” chief content officer of Netflix Ted Sarandos said.
These films, along with newer ones such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation and Interstellar will now be available for streaming by Hulu subscribers starting October 1.
Netflix had previously inked a four-movie deal with Adam Sandler.
