    First, a little background info on my request. A while ago, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One would be region free. As a result of this policy change, Xbox One users were given the ability to switch their regions at will. By doing this, Microsoft enabled consumers to purchase content from whatever market the Xbox store is supported in as long as they were using a Microsoft Account and a valid payment method. This ability also extends to the web via a simple locale change on Microsoft's Xbox website. With the release of Windows 10 and the unified Windows store, Microsoft consolidated their product offerings by including not just apps and games in the store, but movies and TV as well. With the recent release of the unified Windows store on the web, this seemingly innocuous ability to switch locale's also seems to be present; which means consumers (hypothetically) are able to purchase movies or TV shows from any market Microsoft's Film & TV store supports outside of their home region. Music is exempt from this method it seems as an informational message will display and insist that you must buy music from the region that matches your Microsoft Account. The ethics of this aside, has anybody tried this method yet? And if they have, do the movies you buy show up in your collection automatically?
