When I bought my WD TV Live Hub Media Center at Best Buy, I was informed that I could get Netflix and Blockbuster via my device (of course, I was also told it was wireless when it was really wireless capable and had to buy a $60 wireless adapter for it) but when I tried to sign up, I found out that these services are only available to the US (for WD). I can have them for my laptop… or my Ipad, but not my WD, because they obviously don’t have a ‘service contract’ for Canada. What a rip! Sad that I was misinformed (well, lied to) by the retailer but even sadder that WD isn’t honoring their Canadian customers (and that Roger’s or Shaw is probably behind preventing us from having these services!!!).
Youtube looks horrible via the WD (looks 100% better on the Ipad or any other computer), and the only other service that works in Canada is Flikr (yay!), so the ‘internet’ services of this device are virtually useless to Canadians (big surprise) and I bet it’s more expensive in Canada than the US, too!!! Why are we always getting the sh@!*y end of the ‘digital media’ stick?
