Netflix removes thousands of films from its US service

Netflix is removing thousands of movies from its online service in the US, after the platform decided not to renew with distributor Epix.

Titles such as The Hunger Games and Transformers will be among those culled from the online offering in the States.

Netflix has since stated that it wanted to focus on providing its more than 60 million subscribers worldwide with exclusive content.

The BBC reports that rival US service Hulu will now take on the Epix catalogue.

"Our subscribers have been asking us for more, and more recent, big movies," Hulu said.

"We listened. Through this new deal with Epix, we are proud to now be able to offer a huge selection of the biggest blockbusters and premium films."
