SSgt Clifton writes from Korea about being unable to use Watch Instantly overseas:
As a military member I have been accustomed to a few "perks", if you will, for being away from my family and serving my country. Things like paying slightly less for calling cards to call home. There are many services who really appreciate us doing what we do and help us out to either communicate with our families at home or pass the time on our time off work. I guess the movie studios aren't included in those. They are so greedy they won't even allow me to watch my videos instantly while I am away and can't get DVDs by mail, yet I still am paying full price for the service. I would just turn off the service but my family is still in the states and are still using it. It was just extremely disappointing to me to find when I got to Korea that the Watch Instantly service doesn't work here. I am not requesting special treatment, more equal treatment. I am paying the same for a service I can't get full use of. It's no wonder pirated copies of movies are flying off the shelves here. When will this DRM nonsense stop!
Has anyone found a way to use Watch Instantly from outside of the US? VPN? Proxy server?
