PSA: Starz Play leaves Netflix Instant next week


You may recall that, many moons ago, there was a bit of a spat between Starz and Netflix. Well, now it’s finally coming to a head. In one week, on February 28th, 2012, Netflix Instant subscribers will no longer be able to access the Starz Play catalog of films. The majority of people probably won’t notice the difference, because the overall quality of the Starz selection was, frankly, pathetic. That being said, there were some diamonds in the rough. Check out our list of the 10 movies to watch before Starz leaves Netflix, and you can feel content that you have gotten everything out of Starz that you can.

That being said, I would like to point out that, since that list was posted, one final movie worth a damn has hit Starz Play. A swan song if you will. That film? Shaolin Motherf*cking Soccer. So enjoy that while you can, and when you have, say goodbye and good riddance.

So long, Starz. It was nice knowing you, but we’ve already found someone better. He’s probably going to win a lot of Oscars, and he totally deserves at least a couple of them. Seriously though, The Artist is better than pretty much every movie on Starz Play combined.
