I'm sure he'd like to, but he can't get access to enough of the content for that at a reasonable price. Of my top 100 discs, only about a fifth are available to stream. Hopefully our discs including precious blurays will be secure for years to come...

Something like 10 movies were removed in total from my queue, in the last week or so. Anyone else seeing this?

Yes, same here. Most were from "Saved" which I figured they were never going to get anyway.

They've also moved titles from the main section to Saved without notice, which they used to provide.

On the good side some obscure UK TV shows that had been Saved for a long time moved into the main section. Netflix has been getting some of the new Criterion Blu-rays, and some Criterion out-of-print discs are still available, although Very Long Wait. I received The Third Man and The Man Who Fell to Earth in the past year.
