I'm afraid there is no way around it, if the piece of DLC you want is region-locked. Because your phisical region has to match the region on your account.

only region locked content is locked away from germany (due to their strict laws) USK

you will have to do with either a german account temporarily or wait till you are in the US again

I'm sorry but I am in the same situation and have been for two years. I've been toughing it out but every College Football season I have been deployed. Now that I am actually in Germany this season I want to watch my team play via ESPN3 and cannot because of this. I feel that this is unacceptable. The US Military has 50,000+ people displaced here in Germany.

I personally believe since I live on a US Military Installation which is as good as US soil then I should be able to watch this stuff. I have gotten nothing but beauricatic answers from Microsoft. I understand it is a licensing agreement fail however, YOUR MICROSOFT. YOUR RICH. Pay the people so us Airman, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines can watch some football and rent Netflix and download whatever DLC we want. I understand the whole Nazi Zombie thing though since that is against German Law. However, the other stuff should be a wash.

best bet

buy sprint satilite internet receiver and get a US connection that way

the issue is @sn4ke the german ISP cannot give you a geoip of a US server german isps must follow german laws

 

the only way is a US server to get a US ip

from stories of other us military members you use a FOREIGN isp which means its not a US service

 

either the DoD network or wireless salilite connection connected to a US service
