Amazon Nixes 'Dr. Who,' BBC Shows To Grow Exclusive Content
Amazon will not renew its contract with the BBC the company looks to focus on exclusive content.By Ben Lawson | January 31, 2015
It's a sad day for "Doctor Who" fans using Amazon Prime. That show, along with almost all other BBC shows, will be leaving the streaming service next month.
Amazon is furthering its focus on exclusive and original content. Because of that, The Verge reports the company will not renew its contract with the BBC and its programming will be pulled Feb. 15.
It seems like a strange move. Amazon is essentially punishing viewers by removing content in hopes of reaching new business goals. Usually growing a business goes hand-in-hand with satisfying customers.
