Using a VPN to appear as being located in American lands, I succeeded in signing up to the Criterion Channel’s two-week trial. I planned to watch movies in my computer, but it’s not supported because it’s Linux. Then I remembered my phone is a bit more commercial, because it’s an Android FP3, and I installed their app. I get the message “Cannot play video - This device does not support secure video playback.” (And then the thing forces me to be OK with that, which of course is outrageous. The only reason I won’t ask for the manager is, well, I don’t want to be confused with some karen, but omg.) So I also tried going through Chrome on Android, and they also don’t support it. So unsupported I felt, that I decided to post my first support ticket here… Thanks a lot to everyone in advance for your time, creativity, and overall efforts devoted to this good cause!
Perhpas you know it already, but for it to be clear, this is a community forum and you won’t get any official support from Fairphone. There, you can ask questions and people give ideas or answers, and so it’s not really a support ticket. I just wanted to be sure that you knew it
I mean, the crux of the matter would be the same if I were really in the US. The question is about DRM support, not about whatever else I decided to write in the initial message for your amusement.

Thank you for your reply. I had seen that page. To me, it suggests that there should be something that Fairphone developers can do to make the Android system on the Fairphone compatible with Criterion Channel; maybe just update something.
