Come July, Netflix Is Giving These Shows And Movies The Boot

Another month means another bundle of content is getting the boot from Netflix’s streaming platform. In July 2020, subscribers are going to see a lot of Warner Bros. movies removed from the service, making their way to their new home on HBO Max.

But it’s not just the Matrix Trilogy that’s going to disappear from the catalog. Every season of the hit sitcom Cheers is also saying goodbye to Netflix. Pretty much what we’re saying is get your binge-watching started before June comes to a close!

Nothing says “college kid in need of some quick cash” quite like the character of Ben Campbell in the 2008 film 21. Ben is a brilliant mathematician studying at MIT, but when he realizes he doesn’t have enough money to pay his tuition, he turns to illegal measures.

Yup, Ben thinks counting cards is a good way to pay his way through college. But, hey, who are we to judge. We’re only going to judge you if you don’t watch this drama unfold before Netflix takes it down in July.
