    Question with regards to this feature. I recently upgraded to windows 10 but when I logged in my xbox live account in windows 10, I got blocked, it's because this service is not available in our region. I could still use xbox live when playing using my console but for windows 10 it's block. I remember allowing windows 10 to odentify my location when setting that up, and did not anticipate it'll cause problem with xbox live service. So we have work around?
