    Hi Zanaro,

     

    It is an Apple isuue same as when you want to buy or download from the iTunes store.

    I bought and registered (also credit card from Australia) mi iPhone 4s

    Now when I came to Switzerland I should have NOT used my Australian details but registered everything here in Switzerland with Swiss credit card and probably a swiss email account.

    My problem is opposite to yours, I can only download movies in English!!!!

    What Apple could have done at least is give an option on undertittles so at least some movies are understud. It is no problem for myself but when I have friends over that do not understand the language we have problems.

    I have had talks in Apple stores in Zuerich also in smaller Apple outlets, they all know about it as it is a common not problem but nuicance with Apples.

    I hope I could shed some light to your problems but I think we can only hope that Apple will change theyr attidude to this **** situation.

    No. The iTunes Store can only sell what is provided to it by the movie studios. If the movie studios do not provide the movies with an English soundtrack then they are not available on that particular iTunes Store.
