Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) just let its five-year deal with Epix expire, jettisoning some hit movies from the company's streaming lineup and dropping other major content from Lions Gate, Paramount, and MGM.

But Netflix has been aggressively building its own original television shows and is well on its way to making its own films as well. In addition, the company will also become the exclusive pay-tv provider for some of Disney's biggest film companies -- Lucasfilm, Pixar, and Marvel -- next year. It's all part of Netflix's play on providing its 65 million members with video they can't find anywhere else -- and it'll likely pay off.
