Premium subscribers can enjoy the film starting Feb. 15 .  This will come a few days after the 92nd Academy Awards which will be held on Feb. 9 at the Dolby Theater in California, USA.  

“Parasite” received six Academy Awards nominations including Best Picture and Best Director. It is the first film to win Outstanding Performance by Cast in a Motion Picture from the Screen Actors Guild.
