US account, moved to the UK though.

It's quite shocking that there's no support to move countries on my XBL account. For the last year I've had to buy XBL via online retailers in America so that I can play. I don't want to keep doing this, and I would like the local offers offered in my country (Netflix is pretty useless over here).

Does anyone know of any kind of ETA when this will be possible :(?

No ETA.  It is just not possible to do that.  Different regions have different licensing for content and the content you licensed in the US is no good in the UK, and vice versa.  A while ago xbox live allowed migrations to other countries but they were specific emerging nations that were brand new to xbox live.  UK was not one of those.  

In addition, some map packs for games are also region specific.  If you tried to use one ot these map packs on a US gamertag but your IP address is coming thru from the UK, the map pack won't work.  It would be in your best interest that you set up a new gamertag in the UK.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
