Netflix has dropped movie distributor Epix, and in doing so is removing a number of blockbusters from its platform.

Leaving the streaming service this September will be Hunger Games: Catching Fire, World War Z, and Transformers: Age of Extinction, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and the Wolf of Wall Street, among other big titles.

Netflix has said this is to focus on more original content and exclusives.

Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, said:

While many of these movies are popular, they are also widely available on cable and other subscription platforms at the same time as they are on Netflix and subject to the same drawn out licensing periods.

Through our original films and some innovative licensing arrangements with the movie studios, we are aiming to build a better movie experience for you.

All of these titles are set to move to Hulu, as part of a multi-year deal with Epix which begins 1 October.

Craig Erwich, SVP, head of content, Hulu, said:

This is a landmark deal for Hulu and it marks a huge expansion for our offering of premium programming.
