    Hi folks-
    Try as I may, couldn't help but chiming in on the "boycott-Netflix-no-BB10-plans-CEO-is-an-*****" controversy. I found the forums posts
    more entertaining than the vast majority of content on Netflix....

    While I will never get the appeal of watching a movie or TV episode on a 4" screen - to each their own - I offer the following suggestion:
    in addition to canceling your Netflix account, sign up for Amazon Prime to boot. For $79 / year ($6.58 / month vs. Netflix' $7.99), you get access
    to content that looks to be quite similar to Netflix, costs less, and works just fine using the BB OS10 browser. I just watched an episode of Breaking
    Bad to test it out.

    Seeing as Netflix has no plans to offer a native BB10 app, perhaps, down the road, Amazon might produce a version of Amazon Cloud Player
    for BB10.

    I wasn't aware Amazon supported Canada...... see what I did thurr? Your solution is GREAT... for those that have Amazon available in their region. It's useless to everyone without.

    Interesting...Just for kicks, I searched and found amazon.ca. Does this site not support video for Canadian users? Not sure about Amazon in other parts of the world.

    Regional restrictions is the same as denying extra profits... it's stupid and pathetic that they do this in 2013...

    So Amazon Instant Video is limited to the US? If so, sounds like lunacy to me. Missing out on lots of $$$$$

    I also believe that Netflix's selection is much better than Amazon's

    It's most likely to do with licensing restrictions. I'm sure Amazon would love to sell it to everyone they can, but the guys providing the movie licenses beg to differ.

    Checked out amazon.ca and amazon.co.uk. No Instant Video offering....interesting. Wondering why someone in Canada couldn't just go to the US Amazon site for instant video though....only tricky part I can see is currency exchange?
