Does it work in Canada

Does it work in Canada. Many sites from the USA dont work in Canada such as HULU and Netfix.com   ( Netflix.ca works in Canada ) 

 

does this unit work in Canada to support in example Netfix.ca 

 

if so  where in Canada  ( Ontario can this unit be seen to demo it  and to purchase it

Re: Does it work in Canada

Well although I have not tested it with a cable/satelite provider, I can tell you so far it does NOT work with netflix.ca, it allows me to log into my account, but I get an error message with playback that reads:
" This device cannot instantly stream from Netflix in your area. Visit netflix.ca/NRD to see a full list of devices that instantly stream from Netflix"

 

Now of course I can't choose an out of USA postal code (I don't have anything entered in that field at this time).

 

I know these boxes aren't being sold in Canada, and apparently that's a good thing, still I got it for free from Intel.

I hope the Canadian support comes ealy this year though, as Logitech is really going to be playing catchup as products like the WDTV Live, Patriot Box Office, Asus O!Play and D-Link Boxee all allow me to do the same thing of thing without the headache. I do want Google TV though, so I'll sit on this box and wait.

 

Here's to hoping there's some Canadian love soon.

Hi Garrylawton,

 

The Revue will work in Canada, but you won't be able to enjoy the full experience that Revue has to offer. Even though the Netflix service is available in Canada, the Revue is not seen as a device that has not been released in Canada, and thus not on the eligible list of devices to play Netflix content from within Canada.

 

You can still watch TV and enjoy web content that you already get in Canada, through websites such as CBC.ca/video, watch.CTV.ca, or globaltv.com/video which broadcast TV shows to residents of Canada through the web. However, Revue will not provide search specific results to Canadian Postal Codes. Some apps such as Pandora, Amazon VOD, and Napster will only work from within the USA.

 

Unfortunately, you won't be able to purchase or demo the Revue in Canada, as it's only available in the USA.

 

 

Regards,

Mark

Re: Does it work in Canada

It is working now!! I purchased a new Logitech Revue about a month ago from someone who won it at their work and did not want to bother with it as they have a Boxee and are quite happy with it...The Revue was New in Box and never set up. Apparently, the owner of the company picked a couple of them up while in the US and thought they would be cool door prizes at a party....Anyhow, I managed to hook it up through my Cdn satellite receiver and about the only thing it has been good for (or not for) is surfing the web while watching TV..Netflix was coming up as stating the device was not authorized to play Netflix in Canada...however, mysteriously in in the past few days Netflix has begun to work through it!!.
I cannot comprehend that we can export tens of thousands of jobs, a gizillion tons of raw materials etc...but we can not import some simple video.....just my 2 cents.....Way too much censorship!!

Netflix will  not work unless it sees that you are in the USA through the internet connection.
