Foreign Content

Short of getting physical dvds from an online store like amazon. Does any one know where to get foreign content such as tv shows are movies?

I personal would love to be able to watch the German version of How I Met Your Mother as I familiar enough with it in English to watch it on mute and know whats happening. Sadly I cannot find an option on itunes or google play to purchase in another language. Does anyone know where I can buy dubbed american shows?

There are German versions of Disneymovies on youtube. (mostly the second parts though , cause youtube doesn't seem to care about those^^) I found Bärenbrüder 2, (Brother bear 2)but there probably are some more. You can also just type the name of some movie into google, followed by "watch online", but that wouldn't really be legal, so I don't exactly recommend doing that ;) Amazon.com really doesn't sell German dvds?


There are quite a few options available. You can just go to German TV networks' websites and watch stuff there, that would give you proper German content. If you want to watch American shows dubbed in German, then your best bet would probably be to go to amazon.de and buy seasons there (season one of "How I Met Your Mother is here: http://www.amazon.de/How-Met-Your-Mother-Season/dp/B001ECQRM8/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1381074176&sr=1-1&keywords=how+i+met+your+mother). Shipping costs will probably be a little higher, since it would probably ship from Germany, but it should work, and all of the content there should have at least a German option.


THere are some foreign movies on Netflix. And many movies (especially Disney) have Spanish audio, but not German.
