Posted September 1st, 2011 at 5:30 pm

As Netflix continues to add content to its streaming service – with everything from agreements with ABC, Mad Men, Miramax, and even their own original programming – they have lost their biggest content supplier. Negotiations with Starz have broken off and the network will not be extending the contract with Netflix which is set to expire on February 28th 2012.

Starz played a huge part in Netflix’s streaming becoming so popular – with contributions being original series and many recent and otherwise relevant films. ┬áSo this is a pretty big hit to Netflix who recently raised their prices and broke off streaming from disc rental.
