Living in Germany, but cannot use my mother tongue English as my console language without changing region as well.

I only have to choices:

Set your XBox to German in the Region Germany and have all content in german or set it to English with Region United Kingdom and spoken Language English.

But using the later means I get error message when wanting to watch movies as it complains about my IP being from the wrong country.

Thanks in advance for your help.

This is currently an issue and there is no real thing you can about it, many gamers feel the same pain as you do not being able to use the English language on their console in a non native English speaking country.

There is however a thread on the Xbox Feedback website where you can vote to have your language and region being set independently from eachother so that in your case you can use the English language in the German region.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
