What's leaving this week?
Although Netflix will be kicking off the first week of the month with dozens of new titles, it will not be tossing out many titles to make room for the new additions. This week, subscribers will only have to part ways with a single title, with #cats_the_mewvie departing on Wednesday. However, given that it is only the start of the month, there are still plenty of titles that will be saying goodbye in the coming weeks, including some leaving this upcoming weekend.0comments
