    Per a fellow macrumors brethern, I tried buying an iTunes gift card and setting up an account in another country so I could purchase a couple of videos not offered in the states.
    Not a player. The country iTunes store didn't recognize the code from my US card. So then I tried setting up a new account with a credit card, not a player.
    Didn't get the right options to put in my billing info.
    Disappointing and frustrating.:mad:

    The iTunes voucher needs to be from the same country as the store you wish to purchase from. E.g. you need a UK iTunes voucher to buy from the UK iTunes store.

    You can generally get them on ebay (although look for sellers that have sold similar items previously).
