What a random collection of countries, and why not just in all of Europe at once? Just makes no sense at all.

The obvious problem with using subtitles is that it requires the user to WATCH their screen at all times. Not good at all. Try that when you are face down on the floor and your TV is 4 feet above you. Having audio tracks in different languages would be much better. It would also be more expensive/complicated for Apple.
It's opinions like this that make services like this unavailable to millions of people around the world who took time and effort to learn the main language of the world. For me as Swede that can speak English almost as well as a Native language, it sucks to never get services like this within years from their original lanches in English markets, because Companies are afraid of opinions like the one you posted.

I wonder what it is that holds other countries back.
It sure isn’t language problems. Everyone understands english in europe and I do not want a norwegian instructor the day they finally launch it in Norway.

Is it english in France, Germany or Italy? Or is it just subtitled?
