In other regions, like Canada, it's available in 720p on both PC and embedded players with 5.1 sound. Here it's only available in 720p on embedded players w/o 5.1 sound; no HD on PCs. (Could have sworn that it was once available in Super HD in other regions; that may have changed inadvertently--or intentionally--when they made it available in the US).
There's bunches of newer titles available in in other regions, like X-Men First Class
, In Time
, Puss in Boots
, etc. Apparently this is due to the fact that those regions don't have HBO/Cinemax, Showtime, Epix and Starz to wrap such titles up in exclusivity deals.
