Here in the UK, I've noticed that I can still stream or download my episodes of Lost In Space (the original series) that I purchased ten years ago via iTunes. I can now watch these as well via the Apple TV app. However, they are no longer available to purchase or stream by anyone else, (on the UK Store), that didn't get them at the time. Does this mean that Apple(UK) no longer have the Rights and if so, doesn't this negate the view that once a streaming service loses Rights and takes them off their store, you lose access too?

I was always under the impression that you could lose your right to stream or download past purchases if the provider no longer has access to the titles themselves.

Could it be that Apple still has the Rights to Lost In Space(In HD), on their US store which still allows me to download or stream my past purchases here in the UK?

I have several, and I mean several movies in which they're no longer available for purchase on iTunes, but yet, are still available in my iTunes Digital Library for me to stream or download. This is not a UK or US issue. I don't think I ever lost the right to stream or download any of my past purchases here in the States. However, I do know that iTunes purchases are specific to the area in which you purchased it.

That is because people who don’t like streaming spread a lot of FUD and disinformation and maybe even lies that everyone is DOOOMED and will lose their digital media randomly.

But it’s not so.
