Why aren’t all movies available as part of a subscription?

Whether a movie can be offered as part of a subscription depends on the rights that are available. When a new movie is released, it is usually first only available in the theaters. After that the movie can become available in the Leigja og kaupa-category, and after a while it can be possible to show the movie as part of a subscription.
