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:

Mythbusters:
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

  12. I'd really like to point out that Netflix knows you guys love these shows. The fact is that amazon and discovery had a deal. So before you go directing your finger to netflix, please re read the aforementioned information. Thanks!

  15. You fucking assholes. You give something then rip it away when people begin to enjoy it most. Just, don't have enough money yet huh? Have to have more? Or is it the horseshit excuse that they are out of order? We would rather have something rather than nothing. I was right in the middle of enjoying Deadliest Catch and Mythbusters. Why don't you guys go ahead and give the paying customers what they want - you know, for spending their hard earned money on your service, and put these episodes back. Kind of pointless to have a service that keeps losing content.

  28. Wow, way to be mature and understand this is all a business. If discovery made a deal with amazon, so be it. The truly distatseful part is that most of those shows are not part of Prime, so you pay for each episode if you still want to watch it.

    So go ahead and cut our nose to spite your face...whine about how awful Netflix is, leave, and then pay for the shows on Prime. that'll teach them!

  29. A few years ago, we canceled netflix because of a payment change that they made. We finally decided to give them another chance, mostly because I wad dying to watch Mythbusters again. So disappointed to see that it's gone now. I'm still on my free month so I may just cancel again and go with prime. Going to look into it now.

  30. Pretty upset about all of the discovery channel deletes!!!!! Please put them back on

  32. Just learned about this last night, when I wanted to catch up on Mythbusters a bit more and couldn't find any episodes.
    Who exactly is to blame? Netflix. I'm far from sure.
    I'm thinking Discovery. They probably wanted more money from Netflix at license renewal time, and possibly Netflix didn't want to pay the full rate increase or Amazon outbid Netflix.
    Or Discovery simply changed to Pay Per View model, thinking/hoping they will get more money then from the Netflix model. And I say pay per view, because the shows are not included in Prime.
    It is $2.99 per episode or $29.99 per season on Amazon.
    Both of which seem awful expensive.
    Not that content should be free, but it seems quite extreme to go from seasons being included in Netflix to $30/season.
    I am certainly not going to pay $500 to revisit the seasons as I intended, and have access to Mythbusters, until Amazon's license expires and it moves to the next streaming service. Sorry.

  33. Spare us all the dirty words people and take it like the Internet using adults that some of us are! Just Google "Show name Watch online free" and you will be sure to find plenty of resources. Just watch which ones you click. I have had no issues with cokeandpopcorn, tube plus, tomuse, daily motion, putlocker, and watch series. If you are lucky you might even find episodes on YouTube that haven't been caught yet. Just ALWAYS watch streaming, NEVER download.

  34. Discovery did this people, they cut deal with Hulu with hulu thinking we all goin to come to them. Hulu has commercials with paid subscription unlike Netflix which don't. So we have to stay strong with Netflix. I hate it too, but I will NOT pay for a svod service like hulu and be forced to watch commercials that I cannot fast forward thru like home dvr. we need to stay strong for Netflix, otherwise others like Comcast and redbox WILL raise rates if Netflix ever goes under. I promise you this.

  36. It's sad. So many shows I love taken away. As a geek, the Discovery channel was my nerdy outlet. Netflix is still good, but they're no longer great. They're becoming the AOL of 90's Internet - quickly being wiped out by the competition and will fall wayside to no longer be remembered if they don't keep their users...

  37. Why are people saying HUR DUR I HATE NETFLIX NOW because of this? This isn't netflix's fault it's discovery's

  40. Fuck you netflix, you ruin everything good. There is barely any good shows on there now. Smarten up or you wont have any people watching. Hulu has done great maybe you should learn and not be so god damn greedy. Bastards!

  41. all your need to do is talk to discovery and fix the problom you had before

  42. I will be cancelling my subscription with netflix. My wife and I subscribed it specifically to watch 2 shows, Doctor Who and Mythbusters.

    They can't even keep shows updated. We have to wait FOREVER for new episodes.

    They lost a customer from me. Cancelling my account as we speak.

  43. Damn. Time to move to piratebay?

  44. I am thinking about cancelling Nexflix since I can not watch the old Deadliest Catch shows with Capt. phill on them. I thought they might come back on back after reading this blog it does not look like it. Unreall... its all about that mighty buck that nexflix can make off of you.. They don't want to spend a few bucks to make their people happy.

  45. Hulu has Deadliest Catch!!!

  46. This isn't Netflix's fault. Most of you don't seem to understand that Netflix has to have a license from the producers of a movie/channel/show in order to stream it to its customers. Netflix isn't able to just stream whatever shows and movies that it wants, it has to have the permission and licensing to do so. The reason Doctor Who dropped, for example, is because the license expired for it. It's a total bummer, but also not entirely Netflix's fault. What you should be blaming is the producers of the shows, the people at Discovery, as they shifted their business from Netflix to Amazon, probably hoping to make more money. With very popular shows, however, I imagine that Netflix would do everything possible to keep those shows in order to keep their customers. For all we know, Netflix is working on it.

    In an somewhat unrelated note, this is the reason that it pisses me off that Netflix put old fashioned video stores like Blockbuster out of business. It used to be a family tradition of mine that every Friday night we would get a pizza and my brother and I would each get to pick out a movie from Blockbuster. Now the Blockbuster is an Urgent Care, and the only way for us to watch movies and tv shows that we like is by recording them on the DVR (if/when they're on), Netflix, or paying for a rental on Amazon that only works with internet access. This really sucks when looking for old classics like the Blues Brothers, which I used to rent from Blockbuster all the time. It's so frustrating.
