My wife and I were watching the television series "Coach" on Netflix streaming instantly to our computer. We started the series back in August and have been watching aprox 0ne season per month. We were literally right in the middle of season 6 and then with no notice whatsoever they dissappeared from watch instantly! These are not available on disc and we had 3 full seasons left to go. Does anyone know if they bring these shows back or is it gone forever? Will Netflix give any kind of refund? This is total BS.

Actually Netflix gives a week or more notice before they lose the license to show digital content. Most people never check their online instant queue and see if a movie is leaving. Coach has been on since sometime last year and when you either hovered over a season or checked your instant queue it said....available until (date). Netflix never gives refunds, just credits when they are wrong. It is possible that Coach will return in January.

The show did NOT say "available until" anywhere on it. Neither on the shows page nor when I hovered over it. It wasnt in my instant queue. we just went back to episodes via the link that showed what had previously been watched instantly.

Well, after losing Coach at the end of December I decided to call Netflix and let them know what happened. The customer service person on the other end acted genuinely concerned and basically assured me that Coach would be available again soo on "watch instantly". I asked how long and they told me it usually took about two weeks to renew the contracts and that it would be renewed. Its been 4 weeks now and its not back.

it is getting harder for netflix to get streaming anything - and it is not their fault. They pay for the right to stream but it seems many companies are not wanting to play anymore. Even starz streaming may not be available much longer.

Just lost Bizarre Foods.
Haven't had a chance to watch for a couple of weeks and today I noticed it was gone. Bummer.
I wish I'd get an email letting me know that "the following program(s) will no longer be available for streaming" and give a reason, please.
