Except that numerous Watch Instantly movies have been on the system
for limited times and then removed. If you watch your Instant Queue
and you have one it will say 'Until 6/30/08', etc. in the Availability
column. Possibly in that case you might want to record it to watch a
bit later.

There is a NetFlix community page that lists which ones are on the
system for limited times. I don't have the URL handy but it's listed
somewhere in the community pages if anyone needs to find it.
