Since the advent of the original programming of Netflix, their library has now shrunk. Back in September, Exstreamist reported that because 2012, Netflix’s streaming library has shrunk from 50 percent. That’s a decrease to roughly 5,200 from about 11,000 names. But that does not mean there are not good films available and it does not mean that you can not attempt to determine what they get.
At Netflix, there’s a somewhat hard to find page tagged “ask TV shows or movies.” At the page, you can enter the name of movies and shows you want to see. Though, they do not guarantee that your request will create results.
Immediately after you submit your proposal, the site populates a list of reasons they may not have the ability to bring the name. They specifically list as an instance of something they can not increase the library because they’ve clearly had way too many readers ask for that one. The reasons you are not getting your wish include that a show might be exclusive to another company (a la Game of Thrones), the “streaming rights aren’t accessible,” and “other variables” such as “popularity, cost, or seasonal or localized accessibility.”
They’ve also clearly had some repeat customers because they specifically note that you don’t have to re-submit your ideas. If you have let them know that you can not live without , they passive-aggressively indicate you “sit back and relax.” “We have received your opinions and there’s nothing more for you to do.”
