Netflix news is getting juicy this month as we take a look at the newest programs kids and family movies for September. Rumors were just confirmed in an article in Engadget that Netflix will not be renewing its contract with Epix, the company that houses studios such as Paramount, MGM, and Lionsgate. A contract deal was struck between Hulu and Epix, so films made by those studios will now be licensed to stream on Hulu. Unfortunately, films like The Hunger Games, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Star Trek are headed to Hulu.
Netflix insists soon all of us will be ok with this because they have a HUGE Disney deal in the works for next year which also includes Pixar, Marvel, and the Star Wars franchise. Netflix is also dabbling more with creating their own shows, and we can expect to see more great programs.
