We’ll lay wagers… I’ll bet your wrong. It’s only being sold in North America. Why would they discontinue the product for the rest of the world?
Because it’s better for them!! It’s more efficient to produce and develope only one device (the newer) when it’s an exactly subtitute of the otherone (the older). It’s much more clever to quit Live production, distribution and selling (and, in consequece, fm developement) when a newer device it’s been announced as the “evolution” (it’s irrelevant that Netflix could only be usefull for americans, because Live Plus it’s still better worldwidely -i’m from Argentina, and Live Plus is yet more convenient for me-). Especially when the price it’s almost the same!
If i were WD, i would replace Live for Live Plus worldwidely. That choice optimices production, fm developement and distribution.
