Windows 8 App for Channel 9

April 2, 2013

I saw a tweet the other day for an awesome resource, a Windows 8 app for all Channel 9 content.

We have MMS 2013 around the corner in April, Microsoft TechEd North America & Europe and also the Build conference during the summer in June. To have the content from all those conferences easy accessible via the start screen is really great.

On the Channel 9 web site there is an article describing the app and it’s features: http://channel9.msdn.com/Blogs/C9Team/Windows-8-App-for-Channel-9-now-available

In the article there is a link to the first version of the app in the Windows store

Since i live in Sweden the app doesn’t appear to me and it seems from the comments that quite a few countries outside US are experiencing issues with getting access to the app.

There’s an easy and quick solution to that issue. Just change location to the US, download the app and change location back again.

If you don’t know how to change location for the Windows store here is a quick how to:

  1. Type region in the Start Screen
  2. Choose Region
    Region_Settings
  3. This displays the Region settings
    Region_Settings-2
  4. Choose the second tab, Location
    Region_Settings-3
  5. Change the Home location to the Country you would like the Windows Store to display
    Region_Settings-4
  6. Open the windows store and install the app.

I had issues finding the app so I installed it via the link provided in the Channel 9 article.

Don’t forget to change the Home location to the original setting.
