All Discovery Shows Removed from Netflix October 5th

Originally scheduled for September 26th, Netflix has removed all Discovery content from their streaming queue today, October 5th. This includes many shows that we’ve repeatedly posted about being badly out of order like Mythbusters, Whale Wars, and Dirty Jobs. They’re losing TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress” today as well.

While it is part of a business deal with  Discovery moving over to Amazon, we wonder if Netflix’ consistently bad uploads of Discovery’s shows had anything to do with their decision. We often linked to Amazon’s versions of these shows because episodes were missing from Netflix completely, so that was the only place to find them. While we aren’t happy to see Netflix lose the shows, we hope they will get their uploading methods in better order.

As a last hurrah, here are the stats for all 3 shows from when they were on Netflix:

77 Episodes out of order
85 Episodes missing (plus 3 pilot episodes)
17 Episodes in order (12 of which are the in-order Season 9)

Dirty jobs:
88 episodes out of order
79 episodes missing (plus 3 pilot episodes)
0 episodes in order

Whale Wars:
Season 3: No episodes in order
Seasons 1-2: In order

Whale Wars – Season 3

UPDATE: All Discovery shows, including Whale Wars have been removed from Netflix on October 5th, 2014. Amazon is supposed to be getting exclusive rights to it, but they don’t seem to be free with Prime yet. We’ll keep you updated. Here are the episodes on Amazon.

Correct order: 9, 2, 11, 12, 3, 8, 7, 6, 4, 1, 5, 10

Order was reported wrong on 8/27/2011. New order will be put up shortly.

Notes: There is a 13th episode added after the initial airing of the show, which is only available on DVD. Due to potential spoilers in the plot, it will not be named or described outside of spoiler tags.
Please don’t give spoilers in the comments.
