Movies that cannot be downloaded on U-NEXT and the reasons why

Some of the movies on EUNEXT are restricted from downloading and cannot be viewed offline. This is due to copyright and contractual reasons. So, what exactly are the restricted downloads?

Examples of restricted downloads


Eunext offers more than 13,000 movies, of which about 1,000 are not available for download. Some of the movies that are not available for download include.

  • Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and other Disney-related films
  • Warner-based films such as the Harry Potter series and Fantastic Beasts series
  • Universal-affiliated films such as the Jurassic Park series and the Minions series
  • 20th Century Fox titles such as Titanic and Avatar

Due to competition and exclusivity agreements with other video services such as Disney Plus and HBO Max, EuNext does not offer download capabilities for these titles.


More than 16,000 dramas are available on Eunext, of which about 2,000 or so are not available for download. Dramas that are not available for download include.

  • Foreign dramas such as Game of Thrones and Chernobyl
  • Domestic dramas such as Runaway is Shameful but Useful and Hanzawa Naoki

Due to copyright protection periods and regional restrictions for foreign dramas, and contracts with broadcasters and production companies for domestic dramas, EUNExt does not offer a download function.


More than 10,000 animations are available on EUNExt, of which about 1,000 are not available for download. Anime that cannot be downloaded include the following

  • Long-running serialized works such as One Piece and Dragon Ball
  • Popular works such as Evangelion and Code Geass
  • Works for children such as Digimon and Pokemon

These works are not available for download on Yunext due to contracts with broadcasters and production companies for long-running serialized works, and with the original creators and publishers for popular works.

Reasons for download restrictions

There are two main reasons why some works are restricted for download


Video distribution services require permission from copyright holders for works to be distributed. However, copyright holders may not want their works to be downloaded. For example, they may want to avoid competition with other video distribution services, or they may want to offer their work exclusively.

Thus, depending on the copyright holder's wishes, Yunext may restrict the download function.


Video distribution services require not only permission from copyright holders for the works to be distributed, but also contracts for distribution periods and conditions. For example, depending on the contract with the broadcaster or production company, you may only be able to distribute for a certain period of time after the broadcast date.
