Netflix Instant Streaming and DVD Release Dates

Here you have it! 2019/2020 Netflix Instant Streaming and DVD release dates as they become available. I’ll add to it every week as information becomes available. One Stop Shopping for Netflix Release Dates. Gotta love it.

Prior years: 2011 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019

You can tell at a glance which content is available to you, depending on your subscription plan.  Black Subheadings indicate U.S. Streaming and DVD Release Dates. Red Subheadings tell you if the titles are available in Canada. Green Subheadings are for Amazon Prime Instant Streaming titles. You’ll find some TV series on Hulu, AcornTV, Networks, and other platforms information in Pink. I can only include selected Canadian Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu titles – TV series and hot new movies. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to put in more! If you’re wondering about something, leave a comment and I’ll try to dig it up.  Here’s how you can tell which content is available on your plan:

DVD Only = Available to rent only for those with a DVD subscription.  This is going to be most new movies.  Quite a bit of TV starts out this way and streams later (and some movies).

Instant Streaming Available = Available for all subscription types!  This is content that you can rent on a DVD or stream instantly.  The Holy Grail of Netflix content.

Instant Streaming Only = Available only for those with an Instant Streaming subscription.  Netflix Exclusives tend to start out here and maybe become available on DVD later.

With no further ado, fire up your DVD player (or your Roku 3, Fire Stick or Xbox), and here are your release dates!

If either one magically arrives I hope you'll drop me a comment! Read Less
