Its annoying to be a member, and not be able toy watch several videos because of not living in the US or Canada, but in Europe. Why don't you guys fix the problem. It should be possible. I mean we can stream everything else from over there…

@LISSI - We are so sorry for any frustration. The restrictions on viewing are not functionality, but due to licensing rights. Sometimes we are unable to obtain the licensing rights for certain regions or countries. We do our best to obtain worldwide and are going back to some films to try to obtain them. If you have additional questions, or would like to discuss this further, please contact our Customer Service department using the 'Support' button above.

I live in France and cannot watch any of the films nor documentaries on Gaiam TV. I have read the same comment by many of your foreign subscribers.
I think we should pay less since we cannot have the same video/film access as the USA subscribers....or maybe GaiamTV can address this problem??? Thank you.

What is really scary is the News BLACKOUT of the information about those involved in Suicid attempts, and Aggressive and dangerous Assults, while not all, are persons on Psychotropic Medication, those doctors in EUROPE, are reporting that Psychotropics can cause ANGER and Aggression, opposite of what they are supposed to help. THE DRUGGING OF AMERICA, is happening with more FOREIGN Doctors from Dessert areas, where there are no fences, children can run and play and aren't obsessed with Technology,which CAUSES ADD/ADHD. SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE!!!!! AMERICAN CHILDREN DO NOT NEED DRUGS< THEY NEED TO RUN and PLAY, and have BETTER PARENTING.

I would like to know the vaccination history of these children and what their diets consist of. Eliminate all wheat, dairy, processed foods, food colors, preservatives, even eggs one food at a time (elimination diet), and feed them organically grown food. Eliminate all commercial household cleaners and detergents. Stop using chemical fertilizers in the yard and stop with pesticides/herbicides. The television seems to prevail in a lot of the homes shown. Get these children outside on hikes with their parents so they can burn off their excess energy, develop coordination, muscle, and balance. Encourage dance with music instead of television.

I wonder if the subscription is the same in US and Canada, not living there means we miss out on some of the best documentaries.

Nutrition, diet, lifestyle would be a more sane way of treating illness of all kinds in most cases. Miracles Happen!
