Important update: thank you to our readers who have correctly pointed out that Captain America: The First Avenger is available via streaming on Netflix.
We expected the popular action-adventure flick to hit Netflix streaming today. At approximately 10:30am eastern time this morning, we found it was not yet listed on Netflix.com.
We called their customer service department to ask what time it would become available. We were told that the movie would only be available on DVD, not streaming. We also received an email from Netflix earlier this week, listing upcoming streaming movies, and it did not include Captain America.
So we ran with the story.
But alas, the information was incorrect. As pointed out by our readers below, Captain America: The First Avenger is available through Netflix streaming.
The original story that was posted here is below, but it is incorrect. It remains here for archival purposes.
Captain America: The First Avenger is now available through Netflix. But just through it’s DVD service, not streaming.
We told you last month that the movie was on it’s way. As we understood it at the time, the Avenger movie would be available via streaming, today. But today, it didn’t show up on the streaming lineup.
So we rang up Netflix and asked. Sure enough, Captain America: The First Avenger, is available today – but only on DVD. Yeh, I know!
We did get a note from Netflix that listed several other new movies and shows that were recently added to their streaming service, such as Conan the Barbarian, Breaking Bad: Season 4, and The Glades: Season 2.
They said that Starting at the Finish Line: The Coach Buehler Story would be available as of yesterday (7/27). And we have confirmed they are available – streaming.
As of today, they said Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies would be available.
Other movies and shows they said were on the way are: Alphas: Season 1, The Sweetest Thing, Crash, Small Soldiers, and Mr. Mom (August 1). Albert Nobbs (August 8). Durham County: Season 1 and Bobby’s World: Seasons 1-7 (August 14). Super 8, Shake It Up!: Season 2, Wilfred: Season 1 (August 18). Piranha (August 19). Traffic (August 27), Haywire (August 29), Jane By Design: Season 1 and Melissa & Joey: Season 2 (August 30).
But no Captain America: The First Avenger on streaming.
Sorry guys. Sound off below – keep in clean though, this is a family site.
