    Create a US Xbox Live account. You'll need a hotmail address with a US address registered to it.

    To do this, just look up any business on Google to get a valid US address. I used Skywalker Ranch.:thumbsup:

    Are there are any negatives in doing this? Will Microsoft be a bit miffed with me doing this?

    I'm sure if they were that ******ed off about it they would put some restriction against it, they've already done it with downloading any movie/trailers/tv shows content.

    We pay £40 a year for Xbox Live and I don't expect to have any less content than anyone else in the world :lesson:

    Is there any way around the region lockout for movie trailers.

    I used to love getting all the new Hi-Def trailers.

    I know we don't get video marketplace due to licensing but what's on the US one that we're missing out on apart from that?
