How to enable Netflix plugin in Media Center outside the US

original title: Netflix in Windows 7 Media Center outside the US

 

Hello,


I've been trying to find how to enable Netflix plugin in Windows 7 Media Center for a while without luck. I have found topics telling that it's only available in the United States. Is it really so? Netflix (service) is available in quite a few other countries as well, so what's the point in only letting the inhabitants of the US to use this handy plugin?

Is there an official way for me to enable the Netflix plugin in my Windows Media Center?

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and I live in Finland where Netflix was launched a few days ago.

yes, it is only the USA. Canada has had Netflix for over a year and MS has not
enabled a plugin for Canada (etc.) MS is doing no further development on Media
Center. You will need to watch Netflix using a web browser or the supported
consumer electronics device of your choice.

This refusal by Microsoft to enabled the Netflix plugin in all countries  outside the US could be seen as a racist  act by Microsoft.

Class action suit anyone ??

No offense meant, but that's about the dumbest thing I've ever read.

You do know there are countries outside the US that have White People in them, yes? How, then, would Microsoft not offering something outside the US be "racist"?

And did you know that most countries of the world have a majority population that is NOT white
QED my first statement remains true.

In future make sure brain is engaged before gearing up your typing finger.

PS. I would wager your an american (ie a descendant of immigrants who then built a country on intolerance, slavery, genocide and robbery)  by your use of my language.

PPS. Putting "No offense " before a statement does not mitigate the offense of the statement, it only shows you knew that it is a statement designed to offend, And that you intend to offend.
If you truly wished not to offend you should have used "No offense " as a suffix to your statement not a prefix.
If used as suffix it would show you had made a statement that after the making of you realized an offense may be taken from it. This then would show no malice of fore thought.
Where your statement shows malice of fore thought.

Good day to you sir, and may your ignorance of the world continue to allow you peaceful sleep
