Netflix is dropping “My Little Pony” and “Transformers” from its streaming service next month after a failure to come to terms with Hasbro Studios on a new deal.

Other shows coming off on Feb. 2 are “G.I. Joe,” “Pound Puppies” and “Chuck and Friends.” Netflix began carrying Hasbro’s content in 2012.

A Netflix spokeswoman told TheWrap she couldn’t give details about the deal, but added, “Netflix has such a broad set of content that no one vendor accounts for a significant amount of viewing on a consistent basis.”

For similar reasons, Netflix dropped Nickelodeon shows last year that later went to Amazon Prime Instant Video, USA Today reported.

In addition to the Hasbro shows, BBC programs “Doctor Who,” “Luther,” “Black Adder,” “Fawlty Towers,” “Coupling,” “Top Gear,” the original British version of “House of Cards” and “Wallander” could disappear if an agreement on a new deal isn’t reached.
