Eight Thomas US DVD titles eliminated from Netflix

Several titles from US DVD releases have been culled from video platformer Netflix.

At least eight titles from the Lionsgate produced range have been affected by the so-called Steamageddon, a term incepted during the first major cull for TV shows and films last year.
Removed since March 1st are It's Great to Be An Engine!, Songs from the Station, Track Stars, Come Ride the Rails, High Speed Adventures, Team Up with Thomas, Holiday Express and Misty Island Rescue.

Fellow children's properties Kipper, Bob the Builder, Sesame StreetHit Favorites are among the latest casualties.

Last May, Netflix explained the practicalities of their service; The vast majority of the titles that expire are older features that were aggregated by Epix.

Netflix is a dynamic service. We constantly update TV shows and movies that are available to our members. We will add more than 500 titles on May 1st, but we also have titles expiring, this ebb and flow happens all the time.

Thanks to Hawk01 for the alert.
