    So i just received the Eurosport channel via spotpass like 10 minutes ago which is pretty much like the Nintendo Video application, only it gonna show 3D videos from sports i guess. I can't really tell you because IT GIVES ME THE SAME MESSAGE AS NINTENDO VIDEO! The application is not yet available at my location... anyone else having the same issue..?

    EDIT: I live in Hungary, although my 3DS is set to UK so i can access the EShop..

    At the moment, it seems to be unavailable in Germany and Austria as well.

    Region and Regionsetting have to match for the channel to work.

    Being in Germany and having it set to UK will give a service not available for your region error!

    edit:

    so far it's just videos about people having accidents in sport ... very funny ...

    Awesome, cuz if i set my region to Hungary, it won't even let me start the app. I love living in this hell hole...just not really.

    I changed my region and downloaded the app just for the sake of having it. I don't think I'll actually ever get it to work though. I don't even have enough space on SD card for the Extra Data after downloading those ambassador GBA games.

    Don't get excited about the video content, it's just WATTS Zap with a really badly done 3D effect in post production. Weird shit like white sleeves that seem to float off their blue t-shirt, or flat surfaces that don't look flat because of the weird algorithm they used.
    You're not going to get sports highlights like Football Matches, just a set of blooper reels and stuff.

    I got the Eurosport announcement on my system, and it says "Through EUROSPORT you will receive exciting 3D sports videos automatically via SpotPass. A mix of sporting action and funny sporting outtakes from around the world awaits you."

    So yeah, the channel has just started, but this is the promised content. With a weekly release schedule identical to Nintendo video, limited to content already available online without a botched 3D effect slapped on it, there's little appeal. I'm not a sports fan but even I know sports fans want actual news as it happens.

    So if I was to go to another country for a holiday or something.. or maybe even move there! I'd be unable to even use the e-shop? I mean I guess you should just change the country setting.. but you can't change it to places like the US if it's a pal console can you?
