I often travel between my local country (Denmark) and other countries (work, for Microsoft!!!!). In those efforts I bought a Xbox music pass instead of Spotify. I also love quite some time in Germany. Here is the problem.
Windows Phone 8:
Going into Store I cannot download new songs, when being outside Denmark. Buy now is the option available, and testing this, it did charge my credit card.
Well thought it was an error on WP8 as this used to work with my Zune pass and WP7....
Turning to my Surface.
Windows Surface RT:
I can open Videos and Music. However I cannot log on to the Xbox service, when outside Denmark. I even tried vpn into Denmark - no luck. Then I am stuck with my current collection till I come home.
The idea of Music Pass was to get music on the go. Not to upload a collection when I am home. Defeats the purpose. Please tell me this service is not restricted to one location only, as the old Zune pass worked perfectly - now cancelled in favor to my Xbox music pass. Adding to this Spotify is actually cheaper.
Any solution ?
