Where is ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ on Netflix?

netflix-new-logo-red-on-whiteThose of you who are Netflix subscribers might be asking where The Hunger Games: Catching Fire disappeared to. As of this month, movies that were part of the EPIX channel are no longer playing on Netflix. This includes other popular titles such as Transformers: Age of Extinction, Star Trek: Into Darkness, and World War Z.

The movies were removed after a long-running distribution agreement between Netflix and EPIX ended last month. And while the news is not so good for Netflix customers, it’s a positive for Hulu subscribers who can now watch the EPIX titles on the competing video platform. Hulu was quick to strike a deal with EPIX when the agreement with Netflix ended, fulfilling a need on the streaming service for popular movies to supplement a lineup of current and popular TV shows.

The movies on Hulu, however, are only available to subscribers who pay $7.99 per month (unlike some of Hulu’s content that is offered with commercial breaks).

But while some of us imagined a Netflix with fewer blockbuster movies to choose from when the EPIX deal ended, this was not the case. On October 1st, Netflix added a slew of new titles to their library including movies such as Batman Begins (2005), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), and two Bourne-franchise films: The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) and The Bourne Legacy (2012).

So if you missed watching an EPIX movie on Netflix before it expired, jump over to Hulu to get a trial membership, or rent the movie from a non-subscription based service like iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, or Vudu.
