If you are a faithful Netflix user, you may have noticed on Jan. 1 that some movies and television shows were no longer listed as streaming options.

Among the prominent titles that disappeared wereTitanic, Flashdance, Top Gun, and Braveheart.

Netflix spokeswoman Jenny McCabe says there is no glitch in the system. Every month, as the licenses of movies and television shows expire, they are replaced by new content.

"Titles come and go ... it's just part of life," McCabe told USA TODAY Network. "We usually re-license movies and television shows that people are regularly watching, and we choose to not re-license those that people are not watching."

The good news for Netflix users is a number of movies and television shows have been added as streaming options.

Below is a list of many of the titles added since Jan. 1. Happy streaming!
