That error message 'This video is not available in your country.' generated outside of USA confirmed when trying from Finland.

Apparently Youtube is doing this kind of geo-discrimination for while now, there are a few reports on the help forums.

From http://www.google.com/support/youtube/bin/answer.py?answer=83766: "The policies can be region-specific, so a content owner can allow a particular piece of material in one country and block the material in another."

I hope YouTube starts to compete against Hulu.com with more full episode shows being available. It would be a great to be able to stream these shows to my Apple TV through the YouTube feature.

I tried pulling up the CBS full episodes on my Apple TV and they aren't available yet. It would be interesting to see if they do become available and how long it takes before they are searchable by anyone owning an Apple TV.

Hmm don't know if this is new but I've just seen that Showtime channel is giving full Californications show with pre and post video advertising. Available also in Romania so I guess is available everywhere

Cool, the tip hidemyass.com works perfectly, i can watch the video, even in full screen from the replaced player. The Theater View doesn't work.
