Will You Cancel Netflix Now?

I am crushed- my days of watching Tangled [1] on Netflix are numbered.

Last fall Netflix announced that they were losing their contract with Starz Play.  This means over 1,000 movies and television shows will be cut from their streaming selection.

The day has finally come- after February 29th none of the Starz Play movies or television shows [2] will be available.

Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix tells Business Insider [3] that although he is sorry to see Starz go, he isn’t worried about the effect the loss of this content would have on Netflix’s business.  Starz programs only account for 8 percent of U.S. Netflix users’ viewing time.

I have to be honest- after the price hike from last year I am surprised they are doing this.

What do you think?  If you still have Netflix will this be enough to get you to cancel?  Are your favorite shows or movies disappearing?
