    So being from Canada, there are certain apps you can't download the conventional way through the Play Store.

    I have a US VPN that I can use on my Galaxy Nexus that makes the websites think my device is in the US. I then set up a new Gmail account with US credentials. Yet everytime I go to the Play Store with this account and the VPN turned on, the store still thinks I'm in Canada and won't let me download the Directv app.

    Anybody have any ideas how to get around this?

    It is illegal to get services outside of the countries that the services are registered to operate in. This is because these services have trade agreements with the countries that they are registered in and not other countries. We do not condone illegal activity, so I'm locking this thread.

    Thank you for your cooperation.
