    “for all Xbox live account holders in the UK”

    Well, technically it’s a free service for all Xbox Live account holders in the UK AND whose LiveID account is set to to UK. I had to create a UK LiveID and now XBox login to see the iPlayer app. It’s the same issue we have with Zune. No one seems to be doing anything about this.
