1,794 titles from MGM, Universal, and Warner Bros. were removed from Netflix's (NFLX -1.4%) streaming library today, as the studios make the content exclusive to the newly-launched Warner Archive Instant service (it costs $2/month more than Netflix, and has a much smaller library). Netflix calls the content loss business as usual, and points out it's also adding 500+ titles today. Last month, Reed Hastings stated a Netflix/Viacom cable TV show deal that expires this month won't be renewed, though Netflix might hold onto "particular shows."

    BI: "This licensing deal lapse could just be the beginning of Netflix losing key content that keeps its subscribers coming back."
