This move is already disappointing a lot of their customers it seems.

Thousands of movies will be removed from Netflix after the streaming service decided not to renew a deal with distributor Epix.  Removed titles will include the Hunger Games and Transformers movies.
Netflix, which has more than 60 million subscribers worldwide, said it wanted to focus on exclusive content.
The breadth and success of VOD programming means Netflix's decision is a reflection that no single firm will be able to dominate the market, said Mr Nail.
"Netflix is thinking about what they want their role in the viewers' video consumption to be, as opposed to thinking they can monopolise all video consumption.


Many unhappy subscribers are to be seen in the news articles comments, I see this as a money saving concept rather than a sensible go-it-alone strategy, that's not what folks have paid subscriptions for and to change the business model after building a large userbase might spell bad news for Netflix's future.
