No reason why it should be US-Only. I'd say give it time to propagate. Or, they're intentionally delaying international roll-out, like with the Apple Store App.


The reason is because they have obviously not organised content partnerships with theatres in other countries yet. Everyone's a conspiracy theorist :p

Since it's a free app, is there no way of signing into the US store and simply downloading it? I know our accounts in the UK cannot download US store material, but how easy is it to set up a free US account for example? And is it worth the hassle?
