+ - What Happened to Netflix's DVD Library?

Submitted by ZipK
ZipK writes: A few weeks ago, coincidental with the retraction of Qwikster and my cancellation of Netflix's streaming service, a large portion of my active DVD Queue was reassigned to the Saved DVD queue, and made unavailable. Several colleagues have reported the same change. A call to support yielded the explanation that Netflix must license DVDs from the studios for rental, and that licensing for the reassigned titles had expired.

Does Netflix really need to license hard DVDs for rental? Even if they do, how will gutting their DVD library push customers to their anemic streaming library? Has anyone else seen their DVD queue redacted? Does anyone have more detail?

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
