Because our US market is massive compared to any other area. Showing 75% of your customers a currency they don't use isn't a great way to sell anything.

Besides, everything in the film industry is dealt in US dollars. Film sales, even on an international level, are traded in US dollars. Box-office figures, the same. The US currency is considered the standard int he film business, even at international levels.

The prices of the store display in your native currency, based on your IP addresses' geographical location.

The adverts, however, just use $.

Cheers,

pardon me for being amused by someone talking about the greatness of the British Empire with a Superman Logon in their sig.

You do know he "fights for Truth, Justice, and the American way," right?

Just picking on you.
