Finally TV shows on French iTunes…but, unfortunately ONLY the dubbed versions.  Please Apple, give us access to V.O. versions!

This was promised to us Europeans a long time ago, Apple is so late delivering in Europe :(

I love Apple but this is just too slow, I bought my Apple TV one year ago with the promise that TV-shows and movies would arrive fast and today here in Belgium I still cannot use it for it’s full purpose. Apple you suck sometimes for us Europeans, sorry to say.
