    What do you think the chances are of a DMA app on the new ATV? Here's my situation. My main iTunes account is a Canadian one. Since I've had it for a while I haven't really gotten into Vudu, although I have one for UV only codes I come across. We also don't have access to Disney Movies Anywhere. Now we do have a US iTunes account and I recently made a DMA account and linked the two, getting a free copy of Monsters Inc. Since then I've redeemed a couple codes I still had from Blus, purchased Toy Story 1 and 2 DMA codes, and am looking for some others that didn't come with an iTunes code on the DC+ side. I know it's fairly simple to switch between accounts under Settings; however, I do prefer to keep as many of my digital movies in one place as possible. So it would be nice if there is a DMA app in the works so I can stay logged in to our Canadian account while having easy access to our growing DMA collection. I have about 20 Disney movies in our main account and now 5 or 6 in DMA.

    Are you inquiring if Disney will bring DMA to Canada? They haven't announced anything so far. Maybe ask them???

    As for now, if your US ITunes/DMA accounts has the most movies, stay logged into that one. Personally I do think Disney needs an Apple TV app. As long as you have it linked with Apple all your movies will show up there. Even when you try to buy a movie through DMA it points you back to iTunes.

    I don't expect them to bring DMA to Canada. Just wondering if there will be a native DMA app for Apple TV. My Canadian iTunes account has the most movies. I'd like to have a DMA app on ATV while still being logged into my Canadian account.

    Oh you want the best of both worlds. Here's a possible solution:

    If Google doesn't use geolocation. Get a US google play account, sync it with your US DMA account. Log into YouTube on your Apple TV with that US Google account and you will have access to all your US DMA content.
