It ALL has to do with licensing issues. They didn't take them down because they are trying to be mean. It's unfortunate, but there are a lot of reasons why are favorite shows and films, be it exercise related or not, cannot stay on Netflix/TV.

If it were up to Netflix they would have every video known to man. The fact is someone owns all of those videos and the price they want to collect to make them available is most likely more than netflix feels they can pay and keep subscription fees reasonable.

I would submit if anyone are jerks it is most likely the owners of these videos. Physical distribution of video and music is in a slow death and the distributors are doing everything they can do to keep it alive artificially so they make it harder and harder for streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon to provide them. I think Netflix is right to try to keep the subscriber fees as low as possible. Think back to cable television. As content became available it was provo\ided but the fees went up and up and up. I believe they are using a measured approach not rushing in to get every piece of content at any price and simply getting the content that is possible at a certain price point. I also get impatient when something I want isn't there, but I certainly don't want to see the fess double or triple to get it.

I do get Jillian Michaels 30 day shred, No More Trouble Zones, and Banish Fat fast on my Netflix... I think that's about it.

I used to do my Pilates workouts with Netflix! I was so mad when they removed them. Jerks!

You'll find lots of videos on YouTube!

They used to have some really good Crunch Workouts, yoga, and pilate videos, but you're right, it seems like there aren't any left.

There are a ton if you search for them on YouTube, though (I've had no problems finding full videos for Jillian Michaels, Denise Austin, and lots of others).

There used to be a lot of them, but now there are almost no workout videos on Netflix. They removed them all! I have no idea why (some reports say licensing issues, but I don't see how that could be ALL of them!) but there's only a couple, and they're kids videos (one for yoga.)

I just signed up for Netflix and I remember seeing exercise videos on there, but now I can't find any. Are there any specific videos I can search for to stream? I just don't feel like the gym today and was trying to find an alternative.
