Comment UK costs will numerically match those of the US (Score -1) 73

Well that just makes no sense, whatsoever. its basically charging arbirtarily different prices in different regions and pocketing the difference. I am sure a US app maker will still get paid in USD.

What a giant FUCK U to their users and developers. I wonder if a government will finally step in and end region locking?

Its just like the resistance to digital music distribution. The sports leagues will need to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

In the case of the NHL which is #4 out of the 3 major professional sports (after Nascar in revenue), they will be lucky to survive. Instead they keep expanding the league and watering down the content.

Its a legal grey area. It violates the TOS for NHL so they could disconnect you for using it. Otherwise why would they region lock local games?

I don't know if they bother trying to block it, though. Maybe it is some agreement to the cable companies to not cannibalize their local revenue, but maybe they don't take it seriously.

Either way, they act like they don't want my money, so they are not getting my money.
