    I'll be getting my Apple TV in the next couple of days. Here in the UK I believe we get the MLB channel, and not the NHL. However, I'm aware setting my location to US will enable the NHL coverage. What will my limitations be doing this? Will it effect anything else?

    You can't just change the country to US, you will need a US iTunes account for the ATV to authorise viewing that region.

    I have a UK and US account, you can create a US account easily. On your Mac go to the iTunes store and change to US and create a new account, you will need a full and valid US address, I used a hotel in NYC that I frequent regularly. Don't enter a credit/debit card number as it will see it's not a US card.

    All I do then is buy US iTunes vouchers from ebay, works a treat!

    Thanks for your reply.

    Having different accounts will mean that any media I've purchased on my current account won't be available via Home Share is that right? I will then have to log into my current UK account to view that?

    I think just need a VPN. I use a VPN (hotspot on app store) on my iPad for USA Netflix.
