Netflix’s UK account has been attempting to explain that while the film has been promoted via Netflix social media accounts, that doesn’t necessarily mean it is available globally on the Netflix platform.
“When we don’t have the rights to something in the UK/IE all we can do is *not* talk about it here, which we haven’t,” a message to a user explained. “Sky bought the UK rights a long, long time ago, to they weren’t available here.”
totally get that – but @netflix is the US account, rather than a general account. When we don't have the rights to something in the uk/ie all we can do is *not* talk about it here, which we haven't. Sky bought the UK rights a long, long time ago, so they weren't available here.x
However, there is a way to stream the film in the UK if you don’t have a Sky Cinema subscription.
NOW TV is a service that lets users watch Sky content without a contract via a NOW TV ‘Pass’. The service allows users to pay a one-off fee to access movies on Sky for a limited time, rather than signing up to a full subscription.
