What is the best show on Netflix? What is the best show that is absent from the streaming giant? Disney’s the Suite Life on Deck is a gaping hole in Netflix’s online library. The wildly popular disney show was removed a few years ago leaving true fans like myself, utterly heartbroken.

The hit show stemmed off of the ‘Suite Life of Zack And Cody” which ran from 2005 to 2008. The new blockbuster Disney show featuring brothers Cole and Dylan Sprouse as your favorite twins Zach and Cody Martin. However now instead of living in an upscale hotel, they make their residence aboard the S.S. Tipton, a luxury cruise liner. Aboard the ship they attended Seven Seas High, as well has embark on many adventures around the world with their friends.

Now, why would a show like this be ousted from one of the biggest online streaming sites? Due to “licensing issues” shows are removed all the time from, Netflix. The suite life is just one of the fantastic shows removed in the past few years. Wizards of Waverly Place, Hannah Montana, among other, non-children directed shows.

Personally this really made me rethink my subscription to Netflix. As they remove shows, they aren’t replacing them with ones of equal quality. Why not just work to keep the licencing for a long time? It would make many subscribers much more likely to use their services.
