My Little Rambling #72: Will My Little Pony Disappear From Netflix Streaming in February?
Since waiting around for re-runs is sooooo last century, more and more TV shows are being made available for legal streaming online. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has certainly benefited as on-demand programming, allowing everyone from the uninitiated to the pony-obsessed to stream the show as long as they have a Netflix subscription (I don’t use other on-demand services.) Unfortunately, the show’s “availability” description now provides a chilling message: “streaming until 2/2/2015.”
After Sethisto from Equestria Daily initially reported this, however, he followed up with a more comforting update from a customer service representative who said that the show’s streaming license might be renewed. I’ll never feel 100% secure about that, though, since popularity doesn’t guarantee that a show will stream forever (just look at SpongeBob SquarePants‘ disappearance.) Though I don’t have any real use for streaming since I bought MLP:FiM’s seasons on DVD through Amazon (like an old-school caveman), I sincerely hope that it won’t disappear from Netflix streaming. I think it’s much more convenient than waiting around for TV airings and dealing with commercials: I (along with many others) love the freedom of being able to enjoy an episode from start to finish whenever I’m in the mood for it.
