Well BBC iPlayer, 5 on Demand etc won't be so bad. I'd rather have the choice on what to watch them on than not.

Dont you think MS have tried to find local partners to give us equivalent content. They aquired sky player and im sure that a deal is stalled in the pipe works on bbc iplayer that needs to be ironed out. What other sports suppliers are there that are in the UK

Hahaha! Yeah that wasn't aimed directly at you! Usually people chip in with that (licensing laws) as if that ends the conversation. We don't need to have Hulu (as its only Licensed in US) give us SeeSaw or something. We don't need to have the FREE ESPN app (cos it only shows minority sport for UK/EU citizens), but give us something else instead that gives us hours & hours of FREE (sport?) content for the price of our Gold subs.

Really, really grinds my gears.

MS Fanboy??? hardly when its well...fact. But we dont and never will get the same level of subscription content as the US..its primary Market....so we will just have to make do with what we have, and the bonus of having things like SUAM and Nexus....which the US also get, so the US get their own content...as well as OUR content for the same subscripton cost.....hmmm and they get Bridget O'Neil....and Doctor Who Gamerpics and themes for free.....bugger

License laws in the UK prevent alot of the content that the US get for free being shown outside the US. Guessing you have a US account and get jealous each time you fire it up and see all their great offers lol

Ahhh,License laws, every MS fanboys natural defence posture. They don't even need to give us the same stuff, just cater to everyone equally. If your going to activate a service for our American friends, at least try and source a local equivalent for your other paying subscribers around the world, or your just taking the p***. This is my pet peeve with XBL - an other wise great service.

This again? it's very simple move to the U.S. if it pains you so.

We pay more but MS put in less effort because we are a smaller market.

yep as a uk gamer, be prepared to be done over times infinity, and i am not just talking about prices

Cos we don't live in America and they have different licence laws.
