One Stop Shopping for Netflix Release Dates. Gotta love it.

You can tell at a glance which content is available to you, depending on your subscription plan.  Red Subheadings indicate streaming titles, and those available to only those with a DVD rental subscription.   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 Only = Available only for those with an Instant Streaming subscription.  Netflix Exclusives tend to start out here and maybe become available on DVD later.

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.

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