When it comes to titles leaving the streaming platform, usually, the date is posted 14 days in advance. However, be warned that Amazon does not always follow this procedure, and every month titles disappear without notice.

Netflix updates the list of titles available almost every day during the month. Amazon Prime Video adds most of its new titles on the first of the month.

Amazon licenses TV shows and movies from studios and content providers around the world, and those licenses can expire if they're not renewed. If one of your favorite TV shows or movies you love is leaving, it indicates that the licensing agreement with the content provider is about to end.
