Windows 10 Education & the Films and TV app

Anyone else using Windows 10 Education, and having the problem with the Films & TV app not allowing you to access puchased content (the tab to do so just isn’t there).

Found this thread open on the MS site, so its not just me.

Wonder if Paul and Co would be able to nudge Microsoft to see if they’re planning on fixing this.

    <p>I'm assuming this content your're trying to buy has educational value? Still, if MS can have ads for Candy Crush in Windows 10 Enterprise, a Films &amp; TV app in Windows 10 Education doesn't surprise me.</p>

      <p><a href="; target="_blank"><em>In reply to ghostrider:</em></a></p><p>At one level I can understand skepticism that a TV app would have value in an Education SKU. On another, there could be some benefit from watching episodes of PBS's <em>Nova</em> or <em>Frontline</em>, even (if they exist) old Jacques Cousteau and National Geographic programs. As for movies, less the history but consider the sociology of Civil War reenactors and the movie <em>Gettysburgh</em>.</p><p>I wouldn't say there's a lot of value in a TV and Movies app for Windows 10 Education, but there's more than zero.</p>
