In the news that just won't shut up about itself, we learn today from multiple sources and ultimately the Netflix blog directly, Transformers: Age of Extinction is part of the handful of films dropped by the streaming service as they choose not to renew their contract with cable company Epix, starting in September. Find out more below, and head here for more.

Meanwhile, we have decided not to renew our agreement in the US with Epix, the cable network, which means that some high profile movies including Hunger Games: Catching Fire, World War Z and Transformers: Age of Extinction, will expire at the end of September in the US. If you want to see them on Netflix US, now is the time.

While many of these movies are popular, they are also widely available on cable and other subscription platforms at the same time as they are on Netflix and subject to the same drawn out licensing periods. Through our original films and some innovative licensing arrangements with the movie studios, we are aiming to build a better movie experience for you.

To be honest, the statement that Netflix is going to focus on original programming bothers me. Original programming sucks. For every good show or movie there are ten terrible ones. Maybe they think they can be successful like HBO. I hope so but for some reason i think they will go more the syfy route.

Also: I love watching old movies that no one is clambering for...remember when Netflix streaming did that? That's why I liked it. Now....I may just keep it for daredevil...which, dang it, Is what they want!

I would say, "I'm glad to have seen it while I had the chance," but that would imply that after having seen it, I was glad to have done so...

Just look up on yahoo news, they usually have a list of what's being added & taken away each month around this time, that probably how the news found its way here.

I would think that anybody who really likes AoE, probably already owns it in some media format. I think several TF fans who even *don't* like the film, own it in some format for completion sake, its not like its hard to find, or overly expensive. I thought it was kind of silly to be on Netflix in the first place. IIRC DoTM, and now AoE have both been on Netflix, and both were taken off after something like what? 3 months? -Anyway, Amazon Prime still has it.

Now if they could just drop it from existence, we could all breath a sigh of relief.

Well, them and people who know basic things about movies, story structure, scripting, humor and basic human behavior.

You know, things like not making it a plot point to justify the statutory rape of one character by another.
