I wanted to see some online videos from the Olympics game, and I knew NBC should have a great site for this, because Microsoft published the fact that NBC plans to use Silverlight to share the Olympics videos.
So I went into http://www.nbcolympics.com/video/player.html.
I got an advertisement.
Ok, we already got used to the fact that those web sites should earn money in this way or another.
Then I got the following message:
"We're sorry, NBC is required to restrict this video to viewers within the United States"
To tell the truths, I'm used to this too.
What can I do, I really do live outside the US.
So what's wrong with this?
The fact that I was good enough to view the advertisement.
Couldn't you check if I'm from within the US before wasting my time with this Ad?
