Why isn’t Parks and Recreation available everywhere?
Movie and TV studios are keen to keep a tight grip on where people have access to their content, and charge Netflix for the rights to distribute this content to you. Because of this Netflix are less likely to buy the rights to distribute films and TV shows in countries where audiences are less likely to watch.
On top of this, Copyright holders will often sell the rights to other streaming services, meaning that the only way to watch Parks and Recreation, without subscribing to multiple streaming platforms, is to use a VPN.
About Parks and Recreation
When her man-child boyfriend injures himself on an unsightly construction site, Anne Perkins heads to a city hall council meeting to demand something is done. Enter Leslie Knope, who, as her optimistic nature gets the best of her, agrees to turn the site into a park.
The show follows Leslie’s frequently thwarted attempts over the following years, to keep her promise to Anne, as the pair, along with the help of some of the best comedy personalities in recent years, do everything they can to improve the lives of the indifferent and ungrateful residents of Pawnee.
