There are several reasons for this. The first one has to do with the length of the video clip. Long videos can indeed be very demanding of bandwidth and slow down your Internet connection. Therefore if the film is, say, more than 30 minutes long we would rather post a sample of it.
If you want to see the full movie, however, you can request a Video on Demand (VOD) session and we will make it available for you. Click on the request link on the page of the film you are interested in to organize this.
A second reason is that in some cases copyright or ownership restrictions prevent us from publishing the full content online. In such cases we offer you a sample to help you decide if you want to see the full content (see VOD above).
Finally, the material could have also be marked as "Restricted" (see below).
