I fell into a trap!

I bought a ST600 in USA to be used in Brazil. I have two LG TVs with Netflix ... Netflix in Brazil works with WDTV, APPLETV, LG TVs, SAMSUNG TVs, Sony TVs ... BUT NOT with LG ST600 UPGRADER!
Why not the ST600 has it when you configure it to other country instead of USA default?
This is absolutely stupid a foolishness with consumers in LATAM!
My desire after this experience is now to never more trust in this brand.
The trap is that there are no information that NETFLIX cannot work in some countries even hving NETFLIX service available!
Where in the product box, user guide, you can read NETFLIX is limited to some countries only? Listing where its available!

LG support in my country is a joke! In the USA they said that I need to call my local support ... everybody know how this is horrible!
Well ... Someone know something about?
Some alternative firmware or notice when this will be available?

For all of the time you took to rant and the effort you have already taken to try to make things work, you can have purchased a small $50 box (roku,netgear,etc.) to get Netflix

Buy a display device because you like the picture, not because of the cute little buttons or "added functionality".

The problem here isnt little cute buttons or box product picture
or the price, absolutely no.
The problem sometimes ... like this product information to the
consumer is not correct by a stupid omission.
Forums like this still been the best source to research a
device before to buy ... including my post to alert others future
users of this device.
