How come I can download offline videos on YouTube when I'm in a foreign country?

    So when I went to the Philippines and Thailand, I was given the option to download and save videos, and they worked without YouTube red. I didn't test out if they were able to play in the background, but what is this? Why do thes countries allow this to happen without YouTube red?

    When I return to Canada all these options are gone :(

    I've heard about this before. They made this feature only for places where they consider data and internet access to be less available/reliable.
