A year after Barbra Streisand signed a deal with Netflix to bring her back catalog to the streaming service those titles have now departed. Six of her specials have now been removed from Netflix around the world.
Last year, Netflix struck a licensing deal with Barbra Streisand for six of her specials and an expanded version of A Star is Born. What we didn’t know at the time is that deal only lasts for a year and with its removal, Netflix has not been renewed.
A Star is Born has already left from Netflix with it departing in October 2018 with only Netflix in the United Kingdom still streaming the movie.
Barbra Streisand’s collection of specials and concerts made up the bulk of the concerts streaming on Netflix.
Here are the titles that have now departed from Netflix:
- Barbra Streisand… and Other Musical Instruments (1973)
- Barbra Streisand: A Happening in Central Park (1968)
- Barbra Streisand: The Concert (1994)
- Barbra Streisand: Timeless: Live in Concert (2001)
- Color Me Barbra (1966)
- My Name Is Barbra (1965)
The titles were licensed to almost every Netflix region available including but not limited to the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada.
Barbra’s Netflix Original title entitled “Barbra: The Music … The Mem’ries … The Magic!” remains on Netflix but that shouldn’t be a surprise given it’s an original production and doesn’t currently have any expiration dates.
Where these titles will end up next is unknown with nothing being announced since the quiet removal of the six titles.
