‘Original Series’ to End at NetFlix

NetFlix has announced that it will cease offering ‘original series’ episodes (seasons 1-10).

However, it is important to note that many of those episodes will still be available on several cable and streaming services, not to mention YouTube. Cable channel IFC continues to show episodes in the wee hours. Shout Factory’s streaming service is still running them. In addition, you can see episodes on Twitch, Comet and Pluto (which also has a Rifftrax channel). And maybe other places (please correct me).

    Peculiar, as the last few years they have swapped out episodes, rather than eliminate them completely. It’s not a bad thing necessarily, as the classic episodes on Netflix have their bumpers butchered.

    Gee, a cynic might say that if the Overlords (Susan Hart, Netflix, J*M M*ll*n et alia) keep playing “my dolly, my dishes” with the Product, it’s time to restart circulating the tapes….

    TUBI (a channel offered through Roku) also has some MST3K episodes available, as well as Rifftrax and Cinematic Titanic.

    The original show is also broadcast on the ZLiving channel on Saturday nights at 9PM EST, right before Red Skelton.

    Oo. (winces violently at the very mention of Tubi) If Amazon Prime is that funky mom-and-pop rental that had the obscure tapes in back, Tubi is that grungy all-night rental next to the liquor/tattoo that mostly had Asylum cheapies, horror and Sports Illustrated shoots.
    It’s literally every low-rent PD title you can find not nailed down on Amazon Prime, only without the good big-studio movies that occasionally pop up.
    (Although, if I have an urge to look up rare Charles Band Full Moon titles on Band’s own “channel”, I know not to look anywhere else.)

    PlutoTV’s 24/7 broadcast-stream, however, is still running, depending on how many times you can see “Moon Zero-Two” and “Outlaw of Gor”. Not sure how much Shout Factory is still on the site now that Viacom/Paramount has taken it over, but they haven’t forgotten the MST3K Channel.
