Netflix and Disney have decided to unite and give a shared Christmas gift to the masses. Earlier today, Avengers: Infinite War hit the streaming service and users almost instantly took to the Internet to share their frustrations.
In some cases, the Marvel Studios movie was simply not showing up for anyone. In other cases, users had to search for "Infinity" and go through their list until they found the mega-blockbuster on their list. After more than enough tweets targeted to their social media platforms, the streaming giant took Twitter to have some fun with the situation.
Posting in their account based on the @NXOnNetflix genre, the platform made to refer to Thanos Decimation – "The Snap" – how they explained the situation.
Sorry for non-American friends, this is Netflix USA in particular. I do not want anyone to feel bad.

"Sorry no-US Pals, this is the US Netflix in particular," Netflix said in a tweet. "I do not want anyone to feel bad."
The fun did not stop there when the platform sent a follow-up tweet, telling fans to beg forgiveness for Thanos (Josh Brolin).
"Also, if you're in the US and do not see it, try searching, logging out, and signing in again," continued the streamer. "Or praying to Thanos to forgive him? One of them should work."
Of course, was the release of the film was peculiar. For much of the morning, the movie was not showing up at any of the major application locations. I know that when my family and I decided to attend a classic Christmas performance today, we found ourselves looking for him a few times before he finally showed up.
Besides Infinite War, the last two years of Marvel Cinematic Universe properties are on Netflix, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, and Black Panther. Disney previously announced that due to the imminent launch of its Disney + platform, the licensing agreement will terminate with Netflix as of January 1, 2019.
Because of the end of the agreement, Peyton Reed's Man-Ant and the Vespa will be the latest Marvel Studios movie to be added to the streaming platform, presumably in the first quarter of 2019. Beginning with Captain Marvel, MCU properties will go straight to Disney + instead of Netflix or any other streaming platform.
