Put simply large media corporations are deciding they don't want people to watch their movies on Netflix so they've started appending the phrase `not on netflix streaming for years` to their trailers and advertisements. It's a marketing practice designed to make the listener want to watch the movie or tv show right now and pay a higher price to do so.

You might ask yourself why don't the media companies just offer the movie or show on netflix? The answer is simple: they make more money when people buy the movie or show outright. To understand this a little better we've compiled some numbers:
|Netflix annual content costs:||$2 billion|
|Number of hours people watched Netflix:||20 billion hours|
|Average cost per hour of content watched:||$0.10 / hour|
|Average cost for a movie||$0.20|
|Average cost for a tv show episode||$0.07|
It makes sense that media companies want to make the most profit possible and they'd rather someone pay $20 to buy their movie than get $0.10 for someone to rent it, but the reality is they're shooting themselves in the foot by advertising `not on netflix streaming for years`. It's a slimey advertising practice and frankly it makes many potential customers skip the movie all together.
